DC Universe brought the goods to San Diego Comic-Con, which included a first look at Titans season 2. The streaming service also confirmed the show's return date, which is set for Friday, September 6. So mark your calendars, DC fans because Robin and the gang are coming back for another round of surprisingly violent comic book action, and they're bringing some brand new friends along for the ride in the sophomore season.
The news was later confirmed in a tweet following Comic-Con, which also included the logo for season 2.
"Titans season 2 premieres September 6, only on #DCUNIVERSE! #DCSDCC #SDCC"
As for the footage, it was a sizzle reel, as opposed to a traditional trailer, which included highlights from season 2. Amongst those highlights were glimpses at Esai Morales as Deathstroke, and Drew Van Acker as Aqualad. The footage wrapped up with Deathstroke, setting him up as a major part of the seasons. Those in attendance also got a look at the revamped Titans lineup, which includes Hawk, Dove, Wonder Girl and Superboy, played by Joshua Orpin. They join Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Tegan Croft), and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter).
The second season will be bringing in some other new characters as well, such as Jericho (Chella Man), Ravager (Chelsea Zhang), and Mercy Graves (Natalie Gumede). Not to mention Iain Glen, who will be portraying Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. Sadly, the footage hasn't made its way online, so those who weren't at Comic-Con will have to wait a little bit longer to actually catch a glimpse for themselves. On the plus side, with the premiere just around the corner, we're likely going to get a proper trailer making its way online sooner rather than later.
In other DC Universe news, it was announced that Doom Patrol will be getting a second season as well, but with a twist. The DC Comics adaptation will be airing episodes on DC Universe and HBO Max simultaneously. The recently announced WarnerMedia streaming service is set to be wide-ranging and they're apparently testing the waters with DC content. The first trailer for the Harley Quinn animated series was also revealed and, last but not least, Young Justice was picked up for season 4. Swamp Thing remains a one-and-done affair.
Titans was the first live-action series produced for the DC Universe streaming service. The service itself costs $7.99 per month, or $74.99 annually. There have been some questions about its possible long-term viability, with DC's parent company WarnerMedia begins to pour its resources into HBO Max. But with Doom Patrol's pick up, it's possible the other shows could make the jump as well, if that time ever comes. Be sure to check out the Titans season 2 logo below.
