Above you can get your first low-rez glimpse of Drew Van Acker as Aqualad from the upcoming second season of DC Universe’s ‘Titans’. On the far left is Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie) also fully suited-up. It appears that at some point, the original Titans (or Teen Titans?) go back into action as a team.
That was just one highlight of DC Universe’s presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. In addition to the announcement that ‘Doom Patrol’ had been renewed for a second season, to be shared with WarnerMedia’s upcoming HBO Max service, the release date for ‘Titans’ Season 2 was announced, along with the news that animated series ‘Young Justice’ would be back for a fourth season.

In addition, the new season also introduced Iain Glenn as Bruce Wayne, Natalie Gumede as Mercy Graves, Chella Man as Joseph Wilson/Jericho, Joshua Orpin as Superboy, and Chelsea T. Zhang as Rose Wilson/Ravager.
As announced at SDCC, ‘Titans’ returns to DC Universe for its second season on Friday, September 6.
Showrunner Greg Walker gave an idea of what to expect:
“We’re cannibalizing some of the stuff from Episode 12 [for the premiere]. We thought it was such a good cliffhanger at the end of 11, and we wanted to go for an even bigger, better Season 2 opener. We had a big idea, and our friends at DC bought it.”
“It’s really fun to be able to you know where we’re going to go with it. We’re going to also use [the Season 2 premiere] to launch a new villain, and because Trigon’s role in canon is so huge, we felt like we really needed to give him a really big episode, the kind you can launch a season with.”
‘Titans’ stars Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Kory Anders/Starfire, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, Ryan Potter as Garfield Logan/Beast Boy, Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Robin, and Curran Walters, as Jason Todd/New Robin. Recurring guest-stars include Seamus Dever as Trigon, Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger/Dove, Conor Leslie as Donna Troy/Wonder Girl, and Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall/Hawk.
In addition to ‘Titans’, DC Universe also houses another, very different series focusing on the youth of DC Comics, the animated ‘Young Justice’. The show originated on Cartoon Network, but after two fan-favorite seasons, was cancelled after the failure of the tie-in toy line. Infuriatingly, the show ended on a cliffhanger, so it was a blessing when DC Universe announced that it would craft new episodes.
About half of Season 3, known as ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ has been released. Now fans can rest assured that even more adventures are coming, and, as producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti stated at SDCC, they are already in production.
So while there is some question as to the ultimate fate of DC Universe, it appears that for the time being, fans have nothing to worry about and there will be new episodes of these two fan-favorite shows.
