One of the breakout shows from the new DC Universe platform is “Titans,” and the series was renewed for a third season this week. Warner Bros. Television and DC Universe made the confirmation on social media, telling fans that the Titans will return with all-new episodes in Fall 2020. That’s pretty far away at this point, and competing platforms will be happy to fill the gap with superhero content of their own.
“Titans” was one of the tent-poles that launched the DC Universe service in 2018, and since then, they have become one of the most popular shows on the platform. The show is currently in its second season, and follows Dick Grayson, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy, Hawk and Dove, Wonder Girl, and Robin. The crew are still learning to work together in the second season, and they are currently trying to take down Deathstroke. You can watch all of Season 1 on DC Universe, and new episodes from Season 2 launch every Friday.
The announcement came hours before Disney launched the new Disney+ service, which will host content from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, NatGeo, and a seemingly endless amount of content from Walt Disney’s vault. The service will also add new Disney original series and movies. With the streaming wars going into overdrive, you can see why Warner Bros. Television and DC Universe wants to remind everyone to keep their subscription around for another year.
While DC Universe, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu battle for subscribers (with Disney owning both Hulu and Disney+) it would be easier for consumers if the DC Universe was part of the overall HBO Max subscription. Disney is even offering a single bundle that will give you Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+, and that bundle will be available after the service launches. Berlanti Productions produces “Titans,” and the production company is a driving force behind several major projects scheduled to debut on HBO Max. “Doom Patrol,” another Berlanti Productions project, will be available on both platforms but we haven’t heard anything about “Titans.” For now, we will have to wait and see what Warner Bros. Television does with its splintered subscription plans, but hopefully they will take a note from Disney, and put everything under one subscription.
