‘Titans‘ is a superhero series that follows Batman’s former protege, Dick Grayson, and his group of super friends who band together in their shared quest for justice and self-identity. It is based on characters appearing in the pages of DC Comics and developed for television by Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti. The high-octane action drama first premiered in 2018 on DC Universe and later moved to HBO Max with its third season.
All three rounds of the show have received mostly positive reviews from critics, with fans openly embracing the diverse ensemble of faltering heroes. The show’s third season brings a major shakeup for the team as they must protect Gotham City from one of their very own. By the end of the season, the heroes find themselves at crossroads and leave fans to wonder whether we will see them on our screens again. If you are curious to learn whether a follow-up season will continue the team’s journey, here’s everything you need to know about ‘Titans’ season 4!
Titans Season 4 Release Date
‘Titans’ season 3 landed on August 12, 2021, on HBO Max, with the season finale releasing on October 21, 2021. The third installment consists of 13 episodes that run for 40–50 minutes each.
Moving towards news of a new season, we have some exciting updates for fans of the show! The fourth season of ‘Titans’ was officially announced at the DC FanDome event on October 16, 2021. The news is hardly surprising given that the third season received an overwhelmingly positive reception from critics, with many considering it an improvement in comparison to its predecessors.

During the renewal announcement at DC FanDome, Brenton Thwaites (Dick Grayson/Nightwing) expressed excitement over returning to filming the upcoming installment, thus hinting that production is expected to commence soon. However, the fourth installment does not have a confirmed release date at present. Filming of one season of the show lasts for roughly 6-8 months. Therefore, we can expect a similar production timeframe for season 4 as well. If the team begins filming before the end of 2021, ‘Titans’ season 4 could be on track to premiere sometime in Q3 2022.
Titans Season 4 Cast: Who can be in it?
‘Titans’ stars Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson/Nightwing (formerly Robin), Anna Diop as Koriand’r/Kory Anders/Starfire, Ryan Potter as Gar Logan/Beast Boy, Teagan Croft as Rachel Roth/Raven, and Conor Leslie as Donna Troy/Wonder Girl. Savannah Welch (Barbara Gordon), Minka Kelly (Dawn Granger/Dove), Alan Ritchson (Hank Hall/Hawk), Joshua Orpin (Conner/Superboy), Damaris Lewis (Komand’r/Blackfire), Curran Walters (Jason Todd/Red Hood/Robin), and Vincent Kartheiser (Dr. Jonathan Crane/Scarecrow) are the other main cast members for season 3.
Most of the key actors are expected to reprise their roles for the fourth season, with Thwaites already confirming his return. However, Ritchson will not be seen again as his character’s death in season 3 closes the curtain on his time on the show. Likewise, Kartheiser is unlikely to appear. Meanwhile, Kelly’s future as a main cast member looks uncertain given her character’s story arc, but she could return as a guest star. Recurring cast member Jay Lycurgo (Tim Drake) is likely to appear in a more significant capacity in season 4. We could also see some new faces among the cast in the upcoming season.
Titans Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
In the third season, the Titans fight Scarecrow and Jason/Red Hood and try to protect Gotham City in the absence of Bruce Wayne. In the end, the heroes stop Scarecrow from destroying Gotham City with a bit of help from a reformed Jason and Barbara. With Gotham City in safe hands under the stewardship of Barbara and ARGUS, the Titans head back to San Francisco. Donna goes to Paris to meet Dawn, and Blackfire returns to Tamaran.
Season 4 could follow the Titans in their familiar surroundings operating as more capable heroes protecting San Francisco. Jason is likely to continue his journey of redemption and could form a team of his own akin to The Outlaws from the comics. Dick may train Tim as the next Robin, and the latter’s struggles of adjusting to the hero gig could be a focus of the new season. Donna might end up working with ARGUS. A few new heroes could join the fold as well.
