Tonight during the DC Daily live stream, it was announced that the DC Universe service will be premiering on “Batman Day” – Saturday, September 15. And if that’s not enough… we now have a premiere date for Titans Season 1!
The live-action Titans series for DC Universe will make its debut Friday, October 12 — just around the same time other DC shows like The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning and Arrow will be premiering their new seasons on The CW. It’s going to be a busy week!
The show will get a special preview at New York Comic-Con on October 3.
Titans will roll out with one episode per week, every Friday, and there are 12 episodes in Season 1. And, of course, if you subscribe to the DC Universe service, there will be the ability to read classic Teen Titans comic book runs. You can subscribe to DC Universe at DCUniverse.com.
The DC Universe made some big announcements yesterday, many of which you can find on our general TV news site, KSiteTV, but even more than that… they released some new photos of Brenton Thwaites as Robin in Titans, including a full body shot!
Thwaites himself posted a photo on Instagram which you can find in the gallery below. In the photo, he mentioned “that’s a wrap on Titans” for Season 1… if that is a photo from the end of the season, does that imply Dick Grayson is Robin for the entire year?
Also announced is that Titans is due to come our way later this year! Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing will be headed our way in 2019.
Our apologies for not posting about this on TitansTV yesterday; there were some personal issues that kept webmaster Craig away from the computer for most of the afternoon. As always, though, the first place you can look for Titans information is our @TitansTV Twitter account.

Here at TitansTV we have a lot of “may” and “might” and “could” in our headlines, and we’re sorry for that. Since it is part of a streaming service (DC Universe) that is brand new, a lot of the studio’s plans are being held close to the vest. However…. some good news may have come in the form of a podcast interview!
DC Entertainment community manager Dani Snow appeared on the “James Bonding” podcast and in the process of it all, she mentioned that the DC Universe digital platform is targeting a “late August” launch for the service, which will be “a hub for all things DC,” including comics, movies, and TV shows old and new from the DC library.
The remaining question, of course, is will Titans be premiering with the launch, or will it be a soft launch? Obviously Titans premiering in August or whenever the service goes live would be a big “get” and a reason to get early adopters.
Right now, we don’t know anything for sure, though chances are very good that we will be hearing and seeing some very big things around the time of the Comic-Con International in San Diego in mid-July. Hopefully we’ll get some more official stills before then as well?
We shall see!
What we do know is that Titans and Young Justice: Outsiders will surely premiere before Swamp Thing or Doom Patrol which have not started filming yet. And we also know “The DC Universe” sounds pretty great and we can’t wait to hear more!
