Titans: DC Universe renews show for second season


DC Universe’s Titans has been renewed for a second season, and a new cast member has been announced for Doom Patrol.

The New York Comic Con has barely begun and the DC Universe news is already flooding in. Ahead of its premiere on October 12, the highly anticipated Titans show debuted its first episode at NYCC along with a massive announcement – the series has been renewed for a second season.

While we applaud DC for its confidence in its first original show on the DC Universe streaming platform, let’s hope these celebrations aren’t too premature and Titans is good enough to hold fans’ attention for its first season. After releasing new character clips for Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft) and Beast Boy (Ryan Potter) this week, along with a new trailer, it was also reported that international viewers will be able to catch the show on Netflix, as the DC Universe platform is only available in the United States.

Titans will kick off the streaming platform’s line-up of original comic book shows, including spin-off series Doom Patrol, which now has a new cast member. As announced by Brendan Fraser at NYCC, Matt Bomer, of White Collar and American Horror Story fame, is set to voice Negative Man, and appear as his original human version, Larry Trainor, in flashback scenes. Bomer rounds up the main cast for the show alongside April Bowlby (Elasti-Girl), Diane Guerrero (Crazy Jane), Joivan Wade (Cyborg), Brendan Fraser (Robotman), Timothy Dalton (Chief) and Alan Tudyk (the villainous Mr. Nobody).

Titans and Doom Patrol are the first live-action shows of their respective superhero teams. But, unlike the Titans, Doom Patrol is a group of outcasts whose comic book history is long. However, they haven’t yet got the same kind of brand recognition. To create more awareness about Doom Patrol, some of the characters will appear in Titans to set up the spin-off that will begin airing in 2019.
