The Titans return for a third season, and face a threat like they never experienced before: One of their own!

The Titans have settled in San Francisco as the city’s protectors. The team is now made up of Nightwing, Starfire, Beast Boy, Superboy, and Krypto and they help clean up the streets. Circumstances draw our heroes to Gotham City, where they will reunite with old friends and face new threats.

I got a chance to check out the first five episodes and so far I really enjoyed what I watched. I’ve been into this show since the first episode in the first season. I’m totally hooked. I’ve been a Titans fan since I could read, so to me, this show is a great extension of these characters. This season is no exception. 

There’s more great character development and storytelling here. The producers are also able to find a nice balance between the heroes in their costumes and their alter egos. And for a TV show, it’s pretty amazing the special effects they use. It really doesn’t look cheap. It’s pretty decent production value. 

If you’ve never seen an episode of Titans, then you need to know that this isn’t a show for kids. This is definitely for adults. Mainly for the language not really for content. Don’t expect them to act like how they are in the comic, or even on the kid’s cartoon Titans Go. This is another extension of the brand and it works for a more mature audience. 

I have to admit, when the DC Universe was canceled, I was afraid that season 2 would have been the last we’ve seen of Titans. Needless to say, I was excited to see there’s a third season. Hopefully, we’ll get a fourth and more.

Titans Season 3 streams Thursday, August 12th, exclusively on HBO Max.
