The second season of Titans is racing towards the end and it’s time to wonder about the future of the series. The DC gods have spoken and we are officially getting a third season of this young superhero show.
DC Universe and Warner Bros Television announced today that Titans season 3 is officially happening, with the renewal coming alongside the announcement that the series will return in Fall 2020. See their tweet below.
The villains for season 3
The good news is that Titans are surviving another season and this has given us a chance to find out the next bad guy. Sources say that Blackfire, Starfire’s evil sister, will serve as the antagonist in the next season of Titans. Of course, Blackfire aka Komand’r, recently made her debut on the show in the ninth episode of season 2 called “Atonement,” (played by Damaris Lewis). Only briefly appearing in person via hologram, the episode established Blackfire as a dangerous threat and with it revealed that she had killed her own and Kory’s parents to seize the throne of their homeworld, Tamaran.
There are also rumours that Lex Luthor is finally going to appear in the show. The presence of Superman’s archenemy has been felt during the entire second season. Lex is also Superboy’s half father and during the second season, Superboy learns about his legacy too.
Interestingly, Lex Luthor is going to be the second Arrowverse villain to appear in the Titans. The first was Deathstroke portrayed by Esai Morales. Fans have widely praised Morales’ depiction of Slade Wilson for being either just as good as Arrow’s Manu Bennett, or even possibly better, so hopefully, the Titans version of Luthor will be a winner. Likewise, Blackfire should be a strong antagonist and allow Anna Diop to get some juicy material as Kory.
This gritty take on the “Teen Titans” franchise follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find where they belong. Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special girl possessed by a strange darkness, get involved in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth. Hot-headed Starfire and lovable Beast Boy join them along the way as together they become a surrogate family and team of heroes fighting evil.
