Warner Bros and the DC Universe have released a new complete synopsis for the second season of Titans which teases Deathstroke tearing the team apart.
The previous synopsis teased that Trigon had successfully corrupted all of the Titans except Beast Boy and Raven. However, this new synopsis seems to suggest that they overcome Trigon’s corruption. The rest of the season will deal with with the fallout of this and includes the iconic Titans tower with the characters trying to transition to a normal life. The unity of this new team, however, is threatened when Deathstroke arrives and brings the sins of the Titans to life which threatens to tear the team apart.
You can read the full synopsis for Titans season two below:
In the groundbreaking first season, Dick meets Rachel Roth aka Raven, a young girl with special abilities brought on by a mysterious darkness inside of her that she struggles to control, and together, they find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy to bring about Hell on Earth. Joined by the mysterious Kory Anders aka Starfire and lovable Gar Logan aka Beast Boy, these lost and disparate individuals become a surrogate family to one another and a team of heroes for the world.
In season two, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke, brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
Deathstroke has been one of the Titans oldest enemies. First appearing in The New Teen Titans #2, the Deathstroke was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. Deathstroke was originally an agent of H.I.V.E. and was tasked with taking the Titans down. In the second season of Titans, Deathstroke will be played by Esai Morales.
