Titans is the superhero tv series based on the DC Comics Teen Titans. Created by Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman and Geoff Johns it first aired in 2018 and follows a group of young heroes who join forces in their fight against evil.
We've already binged three seasons of the fab show, and we're ready for a fourth! But what exactly is going on with season 4 of Titans? and when will it be on Netflix?
DC TITANS SEASON 4
By any measure, Titans Season 3 was a vast improvement on the second season. Everything about it was just better. The storylines, the pace, the action were all vastly improved and like any good show, it had enough threads at the end to keep us wanting more.
The good news is that there will be a Titans Season 4. A fourth season was announced at DC FanDome in October 2021.
Season 1 and 2 were originally aired on DC Universe with Netflix picking up the distribution rights.
Season 3 was aired on HBO Max first before landing on Netflix, outside of the USA, in December 2021.
There’s no word yet on when Titans season four will drop on HBO Max or Netflix. Previous seasons have been broadcast through September and October, so we might see it in autumn 2022.
Even the main cast have no idea what is going to happen. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Brenton Thwaites was asked “Do you have any idea what's in store for season 4 yet?”.
His response was simple – “Not a single idea, mate.”
TITANS SEASON GUIDE
So far Netflix has delivered 38 episodes of Titans over three seasons. The first season largely explored the origin stories of most of the characters.
We got our first look at Dick Grayson as he tried to shake off the association with Batman and the bigger storyline revolved around Rachel Roth and her battle against the dangerous forces that were pursuing her.
We also saw the introduction of Kory Anders as she landed on Earth from Tamaran and along with Donna Troy and crime-fighting duo Dawn Granger and Hank Hall they renewed the Titans.
And no recap of Titans season 1 would be complete without mentioning Jason Todd, Batman's new Robin and all-round overly eager teen who is constantly getting into trouble.
Season 2 of Titans moved on from saving Rachel and became more about training the younger members of the group. But with the return of the Titans, also came the reemergence of assassin Deathstroke.
As he attempted to eliminate them one by one, the Titans were forced to take him on again, resolving a lot of the issues that caused them to break up in the first place.
Conner also made his first appearance as the genetic product of both Superman and Lex Luther. But is he good or is he evil and how did he impact the Titans?
And that brings us to Titans Season 3. The best season so far, the Titans head back to Gotham as a new threat emerges in the form of Red Hood and the notorious criminal Jonathan Crane. But when the Titans discover who Red Hood really is, opinions on how to end the reign of terror are divided.
We left the Titans with Gotham restored to peace with each member heading off in their own direction. Dick brings Tim Drake onto the team so we will definitely have that storyline to look forward to in Titans Season 4.

WHERE IS TITANS FILMED?
Like so many tv shows, Titans is filmed in Canada. Filming for the first season of Titans began on November 15, 2017, in Toronto, and Hamilton, Ontario. That took eight months to complete, ending in June 2018.
Because it is filmed on a purpose-built set, there aren't many other locations. Filming generally takes between six and eight months with the third season beginning on October 13, 2020 and concluding on June 15, 2021.
From there it's at least another four months in post-production due to the number of special effects. So each season takes an average of a full year to make from beginning to end.
