‘Titans’ is an American superhero series that follows the eponymous group of youngsters with superpowers who fight evil and crime. The series sees the band coming together to fight a common enemy now and then, as they also undertake their individual journeys and overcome their personal hurdles. Created by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti, the series is based on ‘Teen Titans’ by Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
The action-adventure series first premiered on October 12, 2018. Although it has garnered praise for the performances, action sequences, comic accuracy, and cinematography, the screenplay has received mixed reactions. Since the conclusion of season 2, die-hard fans of the DC Universe characters are looking forward to the third season of the ‘Titans.’ Here is what we know!
Titans Season 3 Release Date
‘Titans’ season 2 released on September 6, 2019, on DC Universe completing its run on November 29, 2019. It consists of 13 episodes with a runtime of 40-50 minutes each. The renewal of the third season was announced shortly before the second season wrapped up.
Filming for season 2 was supposed to begin in early 2020. However, due to the industry-wide shutdown, filming could only be commenced in October 2020, which is expected to conclude in June 2021. This could only mean a slightly longer wait for fans. Considering everything, it is safe to say that ‘Titans’ season 3 is set to release sometime in 2021 on HBO Max.
Titans Season 3 Cast: Who is in it?
The regular cast of the series feature Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Koriand’r/ Kory Anders, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth, Ryan Potter as Gar Logan, and Curran Walters as Jason Todd/Robin/Red Hood. Conor Leslie features as Donna Troy/Wonder Girl, Chelsea Zhang as Rose Wilson, Joshua Orpin as Conner, Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger/Dove, Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall/Hawk, Esai Morales as Slade Wilson/Deathstroke, and Damaris Lewis as Blackfire.
Other old and new characters that can appear in the upcoming season are Iain Glen’s Bruce Wayne, Barbara Gordon, and Dr. Jonathan Crane. In season 3, almost all the cast members will return apart from a few exceptions, along with some new faces. Although Donna and Deathstroke die in the second season, one can’t be sure that they will not appear in the next season.
Titans Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
Season 2 sees the much-awaited transformation of Dick Grayson into Nightwing. Rose and Nightwing kill Deathstroke as Jericho jumps into Rose’s body. Starfire continues to be hunted by her sister Blackfire, who, in the season finale, finds a way to manifest herself physically on Earth. Gar and Conner are brainwashed by Mercy Graves, who works for Cadmus Labs, but Rachel eventually brings the situation under control.
In the final moments of the finale, Donna Troy dies trying to hold up a falling electrical tower, from killing civilians. Her body is returned to the Amazons, and Rachel chooses to go along with them, believing that her ever-increasing powers could help resurrect her. Bruce Wayne makes multiple appearances mostly as a part of the psyche of some of the Titans.
Season 3 may see more drama between the sisters Starfire and Blackfire, especially as Starfire seems to have gradually weakened over time. The way things pan out between Rachel and the Amazons would make another interesting subplot since Rachel’s powers dive into the dark side now and then. We could possibly see a whole new side to Donna if she does come alive, given Rachel’s unpredictable superpowers.
The effect of Bruce Wayne’s appearance on the Titans could be another thing that plays out. As Jericho and Rose share a body, it will not be an easy adjustment to make. Another problem could arise if their sinister father, Deathstroke, does somehow survive. As shown previously, it will not be the first time that he resurfaces after being presumed dead. As Gar and Conner regain control of their mind, they may have to deal with some residual effects.
