“Stargirl” was rumored to initially be premiering this Fall, but that slot will be going to the second season of “Titans” in the early Fall and the animated “Harley Quinn” series. Before that, we’re getting a Friday May 31st premiere of the James Wan-produced “Swamp Thing” series, and a July 2nd premiere of the return of “Young Justice: Outsiders”. Also the first season of Syfy’s “Krypton” will be available to stream as of April 5th on the service.
