‘Titans’ Is Expected To Run For At Least Three Seasons

DC Universe has already renewed its first original drama, ‘Titans’ for a second season, before it has even premiered…well, for the most part.  A screening of the pilot was held on Wednesday at New York Comic Con, but the show doesn’t premiere for everyone else until October 12.  But considering that ‘Titans’ has already spawned a spin-off, ‘Doom Patrol’, it’s not surprising that DC Universe wants more.  And now it seems that there is hope that the show will go on past a second season.

Executive producer Akiva Goldsman said:

“In early days we kind of grossly discussed the first three season just in very large blocks and obviously with serialized television what’s great these days is you can do set ups and pay offs at least within the season and there are also some that we hope will be able to pay off next season.”

Being offered on a direct-to-consumer streaming service allows the creators more freedom to go to places that, for instance, The CW DC shows can’t.  (As in “F*** Batman.”)  It also grants the creators a lot more room to tell more stories as executive producer Geoff Johns states:

“It was an opportunity do less of a conventional procedural show and more of a 12-hour movie.  We could focus in more on character and push the envelope, in terms of content.”

‘Titans’ stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Starfire and Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy.  Alan Ritchson (Hank Hall/Hawk), Minka Kelly (Dawn Granger/Dove), Lindsey Gort (Amy Rohrbach), Seamus Dever (probably Trigon) and Bruno Bichir (Niles Caulder/The Chief) have recurring roles.  Curran Walters will appear as Jason Todd, the second Robin, as will Conor Leslie as Donna Troy/Wonder Girl.

‘Titans’ will be the first original program on DC Universe, to be followed by the previously mentioned ‘Doom Patrol’, ‘Swamp Thing’, ‘Stargirl’ and possibly the recently announced ‘Batgirl’, plus animated series ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ and ‘Harley Quinn’.

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
