Titans Season 2 is confirmed! The first season of Titans premiered on the DC Universe streaming service on October 12 and wrapped with a divisive season finale on December 21. The 10 episode season introduced a ton of new DC heroes and villains (including the Doom Patrol, who will then spin off into their own series) over the course of its run. But that’s only the start.
At New York Comic Con, Titans executive producer Geoff Johns confirmed that Titans Season 2 is a go. Not only that, they’ve already planned out the entire arc of the second season. And furthermore, they’ve already mapped out which new characters will appear.
Titans Season 2 Cast
Considering that the first season already started us off with Robin, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy, Hawk, and Dove, and we also met the Doom Patrol, Jason Todd, and Donna Troy (not to mention a post-credits finale that introduced another fan favorite), it’s pretty clear that we’ll have a significantly larger team at the start of Titans Season 2. And it sounds like the team will only grow from there.
And of course there was that post credits season in the season finale, which makes it clear that Conner Kent (don’t call him Superboy) is on his way to the series, too. Warner Bros. and DC Universe have confirmed that Joshua Orpin has landed the role of Conner Kent/Superboy. Here’s the official character description…
“Superboy, aka Conner Kent, is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.”
Esai Morales will play Slade “Deathstroke” Wilson.
“Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin. While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge. To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.”
But a Facebook post from the Rochester/Finger Lakes Film Commission would seem to indicate that they’re casting for Jericho, the son of Slade “Deathstroke” Wilson, a major player in the New Teen Titans comics, and a character who would be an important piece of the larger Titans puzzle if they add him.
Here’s the breakdown…
LOOKING FOR DEAF ACTORS! “I’m the Casting Associate on season 2 of the DC superhero series TITANS, and we recently released the below breakdown.

ROLE: Male, 21-24, Mixed Latino or Mixed Asian. As a young boy, Max was a kind-hearted soul who never measured up to the expectations of his domineering military father. Bullied by his peers, he retreated even further inward. He’s a misfit who’s always longed for acceptance and love, but never found it, always suffering betrayal by those he dared to believe in most. As a result, he’s grown into a young man who now longs to inflict pain on all those who have caused him pain… 7/13 SERIES REGULAR… PLEASE ALSO SUBMIT ACTORS WHO ARE DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING, AND NOTE ANY ACTORS WHO ARE FLUENT IN ASL
Titans Season 2 Story Details
At NYCC, Geoff Johns also made a cryptic remark that Marv Wolfman (the legendary New Teen Titans writer, who was in the audience) would be very happy with the plans for Titans Season 2. That leads me to believe that they might go with loose adaptations of stories like “Who is Donna Troy?” or the absolutely essential “The Judas Contract.” None of that has been confirmed, of course. At the very least, considering how much is still up in the air with Rachel and the Trigon situation, that will likely be the primary focus of the next batch of episodes.
Something tells me that we aren’t going to get too deep into the Donna Troy mysteries, or go anywhere near “Judas Contract” territory until a third season given how season 1 left off. And anyway, they need to spend some time introducing Conner Kent and Krypto first, now!
Titans Season 2 Release Date
There’s no release date set for Titans Season 2, but with any luck it will arrive in late 2019. Certainly no later than early 2020.
We’ll update this with more information as it becomes available.
