“What now?” That’s the question facing Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), aka the former Robin, in Titans Season 2, but UK fans of DC Comics have had another question on their minds entirely: when is Titans Season 2 released? Now, we have the answer, as Netflix has confirmed that the show’s second run will arrive on Netflix UK in January 2020.
The action-packed, live-action series follows Dick, who emerges from the shadows to lead a band of new heroes – including Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and others. The series follows this group of young heroes as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the iconic Teen Titans franchise. In the first season, Dick met Rachel Roth aka Raven (Teagan Croft), a young girl with special abilities brought on by a mysterious darkness inside of her that she struggled to control, and together, they found themselves embroiled in a conspiracy to bring about Hell on Earth. Joined by the mysterious Kory Anders aka Starfire (Anna Diop) and loveable Gar Logan aka Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), these lost and disparate individuals became a surrogate family to one another and a team of heroes for the world.
Now, they’re back for round two, with Netflix holding the international rights to the DC Universe original show. Season 2 of Titans will premiere on 10th January 2020. Here’s the trailer:

Titans Season 2 will definitely air on Netflix UK, the streaming giant has confirmed.
The superhero drama follows a team of young heroes as they come of age, offers a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise. The programme charts the story of Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and many others. It stars Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Minka Kelly and Alan Ritchson, with Executive Producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Greg Walker and John Fawcett. (See them in action in the trailer here.)
The first original series to debut on DC Universe, the comics company’s new subscription streaming platform, it premiered in the USA last October. DC renewed it for a second season before the first had even aired, but Netflix holds the international rights for the series outside of the US and China. With Season 1 released last month by the streaming giant, the news that it will return to Netflix UK in the future might be predictable, but with DC not confirming whether it will ever launch DC Universe on British soil, Netflix’s commitment to airing the show’s sophomore run suggests that the comics company will be looking to third party platforms and broadcasters for UK distribution.
The news was announced by Netflix’s genre-centric Twitter account, @NXonNetlix with a video:

DC renews Titans for Season 2
5th October 2018
DC has renewed live-action series Titans for a second season, before the first has even premiered.
The show, which follows a team of young heroes as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise, is the first original series to debut on DC Universe, the comics giant’s new subscription streaming platform. The programme charts the story of Dick Grayson, who emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and many others. It stars Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Minka Kelly and Alan Ritchson, with Executive Producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Greg Walker and John Fawcett.
While the drama is set to debut on DC Universe on Friday 12th October, Netflix holds the international rights for the series outside of the US and China. That means it could well be released in the UK at the same as its DC debut, but it also means that DC Universe may not ever launch fully on British soil.
The news was announced at the world premiere of Titans, held in conjunction with New York Comic-Con, when a new trailer was also unveiled for the show.
“This is just the beginning of our journey to open up the world of DC for our fans,” said Craig Hunegs, President, Warner Bros. Digital Networks. “With new originals, digital comics, and a growing community forum, we’re delivering an immersive experience that blends page and screen, creating a place where fans can share their passions for their favorite superheroes and storylines like never before. With our first original series, Titans, debuting this month we are truly offering an exclusive experience fans have always clamored for.”
