“Definitely not Teen Titans GO!”
Remember the Teen Titans? Well, they’re back but not in the way fans know. The US streaming service, DC Universe introduces Titans, a more adult and darker take on the superhero group.
Gritty and dark, the series showcases the most beloved sidekicks in DC Comics history and shows them as imperfect individuals trying to fit into a world they aren’t sure they belong in.
The series will introduce the characters of Hawk and Dove, the first Wonder Girl, Donna Troy and Jason Todd, the second Robin over the course of the first season. The villain group Doom Patrol will also appear with the group gaining their own spin-off sometime in 2019. Troy and Todd could become main players during the second season if they’re bumped up to regulars.
Titans has been renewed for a second season before the show started airing on October 12.
Dick Grayson has left Batman and is constantly haunted by the impact the Dark Knight still has on him. He’s still a vigilante but vows not to go down the same dark path as his adoptive father.
