DC Universe’s Titans: Curran Walters bumped up to season 2 regular


Fans will be seeing much more of Jason Todd in the second season of Titans as Curran Walters has been upgraded to series regular.

One of the breakout stars from season one of DC Universe’s Titans was Curran Walters. His take on Jason Todd, aka Robin 2.0, was accurate to the comic book source material, with the addition of his own unique style. For those who felt Jason didn’t get enough screen time, Comicbook.com reports that Walters has now been upgraded to a series regular for the second season of the show.

Last we saw of Todd in season one, he was headed back to Gotham after helping Brenton Thwaites’ Dick Grayson with an investigation into the deaths of former Haly’s Circus members. Dick and Jason didn’t get along, but Jason did give Dick some perspective about his superhero life.

Season two of Titans is already chock-a-block with characters, now that the entire Wilson family has been cast, along with new Titan Conner Kent/ Superboy. How will Walter’s Jason Todd fit into the mix? Rachel Roth/ Raven (Teagan Croft) had sent to message to Dawn Granger (Minka Kelly) to find Jason. Since Dick Grayson is under Trigon’s thrall, perhaps Jason will join Donna Troy (Conner Leslie) and Starfire (Anna Diop) in saving the day.

Jason appeared in only three episodes of the first season, but Curran Walters won over fans with his grand entrance in the closing scene of episode 5. His spotlight episode, “Jason Todd”, was an energetic, but dark look into the superhero world. Jason’s reverence of Dick Grayson’s Robin and his love for his “dope gig” as the second Robin was palpable. It’s no wonder Walters has been promoted to series regular. Many did criticize the pilot season’s over-reliance on Dick Grayson’s characterization, so here’s hoping the sophomore season of Titans doesn’t feel too crowded, and that the showrunners are still able to give all the characters – new and old – their due.

Titans is currently filming in Toronto and the second season will be released on DC Universe this fall.
