Warner Bros. will be launching a DC Comics branded digital service in 2018 and one of their new shows that they will be premiering is the live-action Teen Titans series, Titans. The show comes from executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, and Sarah Schechter. While we don’t know much about the upcoming series, it appears that we now finally know how many episodes Season 1 will consist of.
In a recent report by Deadline about Goldsman’s next projects, it was mentioned (as noticed by Titans TV) by the trade that Season 1 will have a 13-episode commitment. Given that Titans will be on a streaming service, a 13-episode order makes a lot of sense. The show is reportedly set to start production in Toronto, Canada on September 25.
A recent character breakdown revealed that Titans is currently looking to cast Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing, Starfire, Raven and Garfield Logan a.k.a. Beast Boy. With production approaching in just a few months, we’ll hopefully have some casting news soon for Titans.
“Titans explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.”
DC’s Titans will premiere sometime in 2018.
