The DC Universe streaming platform is getting ready for its next wave of content.

“Titans” season two premieres in less than a month on September 6, and “Doom Patrol” and “Young Justice: Outsiders” have also been renewed. Despite DC’s parent company, WarnerMedia, launching its own streaming service called HBO Max next year — which will include DC Universe content — the niche superhero service is set to deliver more programming.

The health of DC Universe was questioned earlier this year when it abruptly canceled its original horror series, “Swamp Thing,” in June after airing just one episode. People involved in the production of the series told Business Insider they were shocked by the cancellation, and speculation swirled about WarnerMedia’s plans for the service.

But there are no plans at the moment to fold DC Universe into HBO Max, and the two services are expected to coexist, a source with direct knowledge of the matter told Business Insider last month.

DC Universe’s shows have experienced positive reaction from critics and fans. Even “Swamp Thing” received a stellar 94% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. DC Universe’s series regularly appear in Parrot Analytics’ weekly list of the most in-demand original streaming shows in the world. Nearly a year after its debut, “Titans” hasn’t left the list.
