DC’s ‘Titans’ Renewed for Second Season Ahead of Series Premiere

Flagship superhero show for just-launched DC Universe streaming service will premiere Oct. 12

Ahead of the series premiere, DC Universe has already locked down its flagship superhero show “Titans” for a second season.

The announcement was made after the DC Comics TV series had its world premiere during New York Comic Con. “Titans” will debut on DC Universe Oct. 12, with episodes rolling out weekly. Thursday, the new streaming platform released a second trailer for the series — starring Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin — which you can watch above.

“Titans” is based on DC’s long-running young superheroes team “Teen Titans,” which first banded together in 1964 on the pages of DC’s “The Brave and the Bold” in a story by writer Bob Haney and artist Bruno Premiani. Originally consisting of sidekicks Robin, Aqualad and Kid Flash, the team got its own eponymous series in 1966 and has been rebooted several times since with a frequently-changing lineup. The DC Universe series is based in part on the 1980s incarnation of the team created by created by writer Marv Wolfman and artist George Pérez. In addition to Raven and Robin, it will include Starfire and Beast Boy.

Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter are executive producers for the series that launches in 2018 on the DC-branded streaming service from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

The streaming service, which launched last month, will also debut the 1984 “Supergirl” film starring Helen Slater on Oct. 5. Season 1 of Syfy’s Superman-prequel series, “Krypton” will debut on the service next year.

Several digital comics are also available to read on the service, including “Batman,” “Superman,” and “Wonder Woman,” as well as several other DC favorites like “Batman: Gothic, The Authority” series, “Green Arrow: Year One,” “Shazam,” “The New Teen Titans,” “Identity Crisis,” “The Batman Adventures” and Jack Kirby’s “New Gods.”
