The live-action superhero drama Titans has been renewed for Season 3 on DC Universe, the subscription streaming service that launched in September. The edgy, mature-themed Titans was the first DC Universe original series and its Season 2 is underway with new episodes available every Friday.
The current season of Titans introduced Esai Morales as the title team's archenemy, Deathstroke, notorious as the most dangerous assassin in the DC Universe and a fan favorite since his introduction in the pages of The New Teen Titans in 1980. The cast also includes Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, Ryan Potter as Beast Boy, Conor Leslie as Wonder Girl, Iain Glenn as Bruce Wayne, Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall, Curran Walters as Jason Todd, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson and Joshua Orpin as Conner Kent.

The renewal comes at an uncertain time for the DC Universe initiative, which was underway before the announcement of HBO Max, WarnerMedia's forthcoming streaming service. DC Universe's best-reviewed original series, the surreal and subversive The Doom Patrol, has been renewed for Season 2 but under a deal that co-opts the brand for HBO Max usage. It's not clear if the machinations leading up to the HBO Max launch played a part in the abrupt cancellation of the James Wan-produced Swamp Thing series, which was barely underway when the plug got pulled.
Titans is produced by Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series was developed by Akiva Goldsman & Geoff Johns & Greg Berlanti, based on characters from DC. Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Greg Walker and Sarah Schechter are the executive producers.
