Warner Bros. officially announced DC Universe will no longer be home to scripted original series as it transitions to solely a comic book subscription service called DC Universe Infinite.
WarnerMedia began moving shows like Doom Patrol over to HBO Max. In addition, Stargirl began airing on The CW at the same time it started streaming on DCU. Now season 2 show will air solely on CW.
Beginning January 21, 2021, DC Universe Infinite will give fans access to more than 24,000 comic books at launch, including digital-first comics, exclusive access to DC fan events, and recently released comics six months after the physical versions hit store shelves. The service will then begin expanding globally in summer 2021.
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” said DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee. “I’m excited to share that not only will DC Universe Infinite members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!”
The service will be available on iOS and Android devices for $7.99 a month or $74.99 a year. On February 1, 2021, every subscriber, existing members, or those joining during the pre-order offer window will receive a special voucher redeemable at the DC Shop subject to terms and conditions. Annual subscribers will receive a $25 voucher, while monthly subscribers will receive a $10 voucher.
