First Trailer Lands For ‘Titans’ Season 2
The ‘Titans‘ are back, as DC releases the first trailer for Season 2 (along with a recap of Season 1).
‘Titans’ follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Joining them along the way are the hot-headed Starfire and loveable Beast Boy. Together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes.
As you can see from the trailer, this season we are getting some new faces in the “New Titans”. Drew Van Acker (‘Pretty Little Liars’, ‘Training Day’) swims aboard as Aqualad, whilst Joshua Orpin (‘The Blake Mysteries: Ghost Stories’) flies in as the Connor Kent version of Superboy (along with Krypto!) They join Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson (Robin), Anna Diop as Koriand’r (Starfire), Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth (Raven), and Ryan Potter as Garfield “Gar” Logan (Beast Boy). We also see the return of Alan Ritchson as Hank Hall (Hawk), Minka Kelly as Dawn Granger (Dove), Conor Leslie as Donna Troy (Wonder Girl), and Curran Walters as Jason Todd (the new Robin). Another new face this season is Iain Glen (‘Game of Thrones’) as Bruce Wayne, although no sign of him suiting up as Batman (yet).
On the villain side, we have Esai Morales (‘How to Get Away with Murder’, ‘Chicago P.D.’) as Deathstroke, who is very much in costume in the trailer. He is joined by his kids, Jericho played by Chella Man, and Ravager portrayed by Chelsea T. Zhang (‘Andi Mack’, ‘Daybreak’).
‘Titans‘ Season 2 premieres on DC Universe in the US from September 06, 2019. No confirmed UK premiere date from Netflix at the moment, but we would guess Late 2019/Early 2020, if they follow the same pattern as last year and wait for DC Universe to finish their run rather than putting it on next day. We’ll let you know when we have a confirmed date.
