Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are branching into the realm of direct-to-consumer digital services next year in a big way. Announced via press release, two highly anticipated series will be released in 2018 on their digital platform: a live-action Titans series and the hotly anticipated season 3 of Young Justice.
Titans will be brought to us by Executive Producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. The series is still in the beginning stages of its production, but is said to explore how “Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others.” With the previously announced Nightwing movie in development, one can expect that this series will exist in a separate universe from the DCEU films. There is no confirmation on who the “many others” are that will be on the team, but DC did release this classic Teen Titans comic cover with the announcement, so it is possible that we will see the likes of Wonder Girl, Cyborg, Kid Flash and Beast Boy.
Season 3 of Young Justice will be brought to us by Executive Producer Sam Register. Titled Young Justice: Outsiders, it will bring the team together against a new conflict as it faces “meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy.” Given the time jump and the changes in the team lineup that occurred between seasons 1 and 2 of Young Justice, it is possible that we will see something similar with season 3.
