DC Universe renewed the upcoming Titans TV show for season 2, ahead of the series' season 1 premiere on the streaming service. Last month, DC Entertainment launched their own digital service, DC Universe, which offers all kinds of media - including animated TV shows, movies and comics - based on DC characters. Later this month, though, DC Universe will debut its first original TV show with Titans, following the Teen Titans team of superheroes from the comics. After Titans, DC Universe has a number of original television programs in the works, including the Doom Patrol spinoff, Swamp Thing and the Harley Quinn animated series.
For its part, Titans will see Dick Grayson aka. Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Rachel Roth aka. Raven (Teagan Croft), Koriand'r aka. Starfire (Anna Diop) and Gar Logan aka. Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) team up for the first time in live-action. The four core characters will be joined by Hank Hall aka. Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Dawn Granger aka. Dove (Minka Kelly), though the duo may receive their own TV spinoff. Now, before Titans premieres on DC Universe later in October, the streamer has confirmed the TV show will return for a second outing.
On the eve of New York Comic Con, Titans held its world premiere in New York City, where Geoff Johns announced the series has already been renewed for season 2. Season 1 premieres Friday, October 12 on DC Universe and will consist of 12 episodes. It has not yet been revealed how many episodes will make up Titans season 2.
When a show is renewed before it has even debuted, that typically indicates its home network or streaming service has a great deal of confidence in the series and have liked what they've seen so far. Although fans have only seen trailers for Titans, many of the season 1 episodes are likely completed already, and DC Universe seems to like what's been produced. Of course, since Titans is the show DC Universe chose to be its very first original production, it comes as little surprise they're confident in the project. The Teen Titans have proved to be a successful property in animation for younger demographics. Though Titans is a live-action TV show for an older audience, it's still likely to draw in plenty of viewers.
As a result, Titans will get the opportunity to continue on through a second season, allowing fans to follow the stories of Robin, Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy for even longer than they originally expected. Perhaps fans will even get to see Dick Grayson take on the mantle of Nightwing, which he does in the comics. For now, though, fans will have to wait and see what Titans season 1 has in store before they can get a good idea of what to expect from season 2. Thankfully, with Titans set to debut on DC Universe next week, fans won't have to wait much longer.
Titans premieres Friday, October 12 on DC Universe.
