Titans fans have plenty to be excited about. DC Universe has announced the show will return for its third season in Fall 2020.

Titans season two is still underway, but fans can already look forward to plenty more superhero action next year. DC Universe has announced that the show has been renewed for season three; it will arrive on the streaming platform in Fall 2020.

The new logo for Titans has an all-blue look, and that can only mean one thing – Nightwing is the leader. Maybe we’re a little too excited for the eventual arrival of Nightwing, but there’s no doubt that the change in logo is significant and connected to Dick Grayson’s alter ego. Dick’s transformation into Nightwing is still being teased on season two, especially now that Dick is looking for ways to atone for lying to his teammates and being an overall poor leader. One can only expect the character to appear before the season two finale.

With only three episodes left, there are still plenty of story arcs that need to be tied up, including Blackfire’s attack on Earth, Superboy and Gar Logan’s capture by Cadmus, Rachel’s soul-self going rogue, Hank and Dawn’s breakup, plus Jason and Rose’s superhero angst. Will the showrunners rush to the finish line to conclude all these stories in this season? Or will some of these arcs spill over to the next season? The latter approach may explain the sudden announcement of the new season, though we are hardly complaining about that.

The new season could also herald the addition of new Titans members. Roy Harper has been shown to exist in the Titans universe, and with The CW’s Arrow ending next year, the door is wide open for a new Roy Harper to grace our screens. Maybe even a Wally West, since he’s been written out of the Arrowverse as well. Hopefully, the characters feature next season are given more screen time than those in season two of the show.

Fans were excited by the growing cast for the second season – with Jericho, Aqualad, Superboy, Bruce Wayne and Deathstroke joining the ranks – but unfortunately, most of the new characters either lasted only one episode or have been underutilized. Some would argue that the continued focus on Dick Grayson instead of the team as a whole is detrimental to the show. It still feels like Titans is finding its feet, but perhaps once Dick Grayson has found his wings, the show will stabilize into a team property.

Our excitement for the next season is still high and here’s hoping it remains that way once the second season ends.
