To the surprise of possibly no one, it appears that all DC Universe initial series are relocating to HBO Max, DC Chief Content Officer Jim Lee shared in an interview published on Friday.
” The original material that is on DCU is moving to HBO Max,” Lee shared in a THR Q&A that was pegged to the bigger shakeup and enormous layoffs presently going on at the renowned comics publisher.

Harley Quinn, which ended Season 2 in late June (and is currently streaming on HBO Max), and Doom Patrol (which streamed its “early” sophomore finale on Aug. 6), both wait for word on their fates.
