The Hollywood Reporter reports:
DC Universe will soon be rebranding as DC Universe Infinite, as it abandons its streaming shows to become a comics-only platform. As part of the news, HBO Max revealed it has renewed Kaley Cuoco’s Harley Quinn for a third season and that it will be the home to DC Universe’s streaming library of legacy content.
The newly-renamed DC Universe Infinite will launch in the U.S in January, offering DC catalog titles sixth months after their on-sale date — currently, DCU has a year-long wait.
Additionally, the service will debut DC Universe Infinite Originals, all-new exclusive content created for the service and featuring fan-favorite characters. A global expansion is planned for the service starting in the summer.
Two years after it launched as a home for scripted originals and library content, DC Universe is officially exiting the scripted landscape and transitioning to a comics-centric platform https://t.co/8cfL4HWNCv pic.twitter.com/02uI0TXzVf
