The Titans will Go! on for another season.
Titans has been picked up for a second season on DC Universe, executive producer Geoff Johns announced during the show’s world premiere panel at New York Comic Con Wednesday evening. The news arrives about a week before the show’s official launch on DC’s subscription streaming service.
Promising a grittier take on the popular teen superhero group, the coming-of-age drama follows Robin (Brenton Thwaites) as he teams up with Raven (Teagan Croft), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), and Starfire (Anna Diop) to stop a demonic evil threatening the world.
“The first season does take our Titans on a journey as they unlock the mystery of Rachel,” Johns told EW recently. “Harkening to the original comics, the first storyline was really about Raven and how she brought these characters together, and we have a similar connection. [Raven] is kind of the sun that everyone revolves around.”
It takes a while for the Titans to team up on the show, so both Thwaites and Croft came to cherish the scenes that featured all four Titans. “All the cast is so lovely that I was very excited whenever we all came together because it meant I could talk to my friends,” Croft told EW.
Thwaites added: “[The most exciting parts were] those large scenes where we were all together trying to figure out what to do because to me it’s an ensemble show, and the most enjoyment came from working with the actors and connecting with them. I feel like toward the end when Donna Troy [Conor Leslie] and other characters were introduced, and we had this real solid team of actors and people and characters, it felt like there was more of a force, and a little more positivity behind the show.”
Titans is one of several shows coming to DC Universe. The platform’s lineup also includes Doom Patrol; the Harley Quinn animated series, starring Kaley Cuoco; Swamp Thing; Young Justice: Outsiders; and Stargirl.
Titans premieres Friday, Oct. 12,. Episodes will air weekly.
