The Titans are coming back for another round of superhero adventures on the small screen. Warner Bros. and DC have announced that the live-action series Titans will indeed be returning for a third season. No premiere date has been set yet, but the show is said to be coming back in fall 2020. The news was also confirmed by the show's official Twitter account, which shared the following message.
"The #DCUTitans are just getting started. Season 3 coming in 2020."
Titans season 1 premiered in 2018 as the first original series for the DC Universe streaming service. We're in the middle of Titans Season 2, where our heroes are learning to co-exist as a new team while facing their toughest enemy yet in the form of the deadly assassin Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke. The villain threatens to tear the newly-formed super family apart once again. The show centers on Dick Grayson aka Nightwing Rachel Roth aka Raven, Kory Anders aka Starfire, Gar Logan aka Beast Boy, Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove, Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl and Jason Todd aka Robin.
Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Tegan Croft, Conor Leslie, Iain Glenn and Ryan Potter topline the cast. The show has been received quite well by the fanbase and offers a darker look at some familiar characters within the DC fold. Given that WarnerMedia is currently preparing to launch HBO Max next year, which will host Doom Patrol season 2, it's not so much that a renewal for Titans was in doubt, but its future home may be. For now, Warner isn't announcing plans to do away with DC Universe, which runs for $7.99 per month or $74.99 annually. However, it wouldn't be too surprising if they do eventually decide to try and drive more traffic to HBO Max by moving all of the DC content there.
Plot details for season 3 currently remain under wraps. But seeing as season 2 is still airing, that's not all that surprising. What villains will be brought into the fold? What major characters from the DC Comics library will get a chance to shine? This year sees the inclusion of notable characters such as Aqualad and Superboy. Other shows on DC Universe include Young Justice, the upcoming Harley Quinn animated show and Swamp Thing, which was canceled after just one season, to the dismay of many fans. Doom Patrol season 1 also aired on the service and will air its sophomore season on both DC Universe and HBO Max.
Titans was developed by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns and ArrowVerse architect Greg Berlanti. Goldsman, Johns, Greg Berlanti, Greg Walker and Sarah Schechter serve as executive producers on the series. Titans Season 1 Blu-ray and DVD are available now. All season 1 episodes are currently available to stream, with new episodes from season 2 available every Friday over on DC Universe. We'll be sure to keep you posted as any further details on season 3 are made available.
