On January 25, 2023, it was announced that this season would be the show's last, yet that it was written to end naturally without a cliffhanger.
Titans - Season 4
The series follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find where they belong. In the third season, circumstances drew the characters to Gotham City, where they reunited with old friends and faced new threats. Season 4 was first announced at DC FanDome on Oct. 16, 2021.
Judging by the recent trailer, "Titans" may just be finding its stride in balancing zany superhero stuff and a horror-tinged storyline. However, I know what promises are worth. Expectations aren't sky-high this time around, but there is a lot to be excited about in the upcoming season. From supernatural cults to the long-awaited introduction of Lex Luthor, "Titans" has a lot on its mind yet again and is not afraid to show it.
To catch you up to speed, the previous season had the Titans face and eventually defeat Red Hood and Scarecrow (in that order) in Gotham City. The latter got his redemption, but does not appear to be in the next season. Thus, the team left to head back to San Francisco with a new crew member in tow: Tim Drake. It was not clear what was in store for the Titans, but we now know they'll be making a pretty drastic pit stop in another DC Comics location.
The former DC Universe original is no longer on that nonexistent platform, thankfully. After debuting on the streamer last year, "Titans" season 4 premieres on HBO Max on Thursday, November 3, 2022. It's not clear how many episodes will drop on the given date, however, there is a possibility we'll be getting a handful at once before reverting to a once-a-week basis.
Among the new antagonists, Titus Welliver ("Bosch") will be playing Lex Luthor, while Franka Potente portrays Mother Mayhem, and "The Originals" star Joseph Morgan is set as Brother Blood, aka Sebastian Blood. The supporting cast also adds Lisa Ambalavanar ("The A List") as the villainous Jinx and James Scully ("YOU") as Bernard, a scientist at S.T.A.R. Labs and potential love interest for Tim Drake. All are featured heavily in the trailer, but it remains unclear if they'll be showing up in other "parts" of season 4.
"While these will be the final seasons of Titans and Doom Patrol, we are very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings," an HBO Max spokesperson said in a statement obtained by EW. "We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for making such thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt series. We thank Titans showrunner Greg Walker, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Richard Hatem, and the team at Weed Road Pictures. For Doom Patrol, we celebrate showrunner Jeremy Carver and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Chris Dingess, and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson. For four seasons, fans have fallen in love with the Titans and Doom Patrol, investing in their trials and tribulations, and in their legendary battles saving the world time and time again."
"To our wonderfully supportive partners at HBO Max, Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions, and DC Studios, thank you for indulging us these past four seasons," Doom Patrol executive producer Carver said. "Also, what were you smoking? To our brilliant cast, indomitable crew, fearless writing staff and, most of all, to our beautiful fans: thank you all the more. You made this a once-in-a-lifetime ride."
As the name suggests, the show focuses on the Teen Titans, a younger group of heroes that most recently features Nightwing (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), Superboy (Joshua Orpin), and aspiring Robin (Jay Lycurgo). Across its first three seasons, the show ran the gamut when it comes to DC Comics inspiration, mining stories of supernatural horror, deadly assassins, science fiction, and psychological thrillers, all while bouncing between comic book mainstays like Gotham City and Bludhaven.
Season 4 of Titans will have a two-episode premiere on November 3, and new episodes will be released weekly until December 1. There will then be a mid-season break and six new episodes will conclude the season later in 2023.
In our review of the premiere of Titans' third season, we said, "the first three episodes of Titans might be the best yet, but that all depends on what you enjoy about the series. This is very much a story of two Robins and the man who raised them, and in that way it feels powerful and intimate."
However, there's been little indication of who the team will be facing next, with even star Brenton Thwaites telling Entertainment Weekly that he had "not a single idea" where the story would go in season four.
Nevertheless, we've rounded up all the information we have so far for this full briefing on Titans season four, with all the essential information you need about the future of the cult favourite DC Comics show.
There's no word yet on when Titans season four will drop on HBO Max, but previous seasons have been broadcast through September and October, so it stands to reason we could see it in autumn 2022.
It's also unclear whether Conor Leslie will be back as Donna Troy, given that the recent season finale saw her leave the Titans to track down a missing ally, but there's every chance they could cross paths again.
After vanquishing Jonathan Crane in the finale, fans were left with little indication over what would happen in the next season of Titans, with the writers choosing not to sprinkle any teases in the final moments as they have done in the past.

Titans follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find where they belong. Last season, circumstances drew our heroes to Gotham City, where they reunited with old friends and fought new threats.
During the series of interviews for Titans, I was able to speak with stars Brenton Thwaites (Dick Grayson/Nightwing), Ryan Potter (Gar/Beast Boy), and Joshua Orpin (Connor/Superboy). All three stars gave some juicy tidbits about what to expect from season 4 of the hit DC series, both on screen and behind the scenes. Their interviews are definitely not to be missed by fans of the series.
Right off the bat, Walker was asked what we can expect from the Titans when fans join them again. As pointed out by one of the interviewers, at the end of season 3, the Titans set off on another road trip, but where they were headed was rather unclear. Walker spoke about how every season of Titans is a journey, with new locales and issues with each stop.
It sounds like each city the Titans visit is reflective of the story they wish to tell. Naturally, if you end up in Gotham, a story about the Bat-family would be at the center of the season. According to Walker, the same holds true for coming to Metropolis, especially for Connor.
Ryan Potter spoke on a larger, more personal arc for growth for Gar this season, part of which he helped develop. An arc that Walker described as less of an origin story and more of an unraveling, as Gar starts seeing himself in a new light. So it seems like both Connor and Gar will finally be getting their time in the sun.
One of the interviewers asked about the change of tone and color for the next season, after the first three seasons were shrouded in darkness with both story and appearance. Walker had this to say.
Titans season 4 comes soon to HBO Max, beginning with a two-episode premiere on November third. More episodes to follow weekly with a second part made up of the final six episodes of the season expected sometime in 2023. 041b061a72
