Titans and Doom Patrol to End with Fourth Seasons
Published 2 months ago
It looks like the DC reboot is continuing to take its toll. We’ve been watching the steady cancelling of the Snyderverse for James Gunn’s new slate of films, and now two DC television shows are getting the axe.
As reported by IndieWire, Doom Patrol and Titans, which are currently on their fourth season runs on HBO Max, will end with the ongoing seasons. A spokesperson for HBO Max said in a statement:
“While these will be the final seasons of ‘Titans’ and ‘Doom Patrol,’ we are very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings… For four seasons, fans have fallen in love with the Titans and Doom Patrol, investing in their trials and tribulations, and in their legendary battles saving the world time and time again.”
The shows have actually had interesting origins, being part of a launch slate for the DC Universe streaming platform. Eventually the platform never got to take off, and it was rebooted into a comics subscription; the DC shows like Titan and Doom Patrol were then ported over to HBO Max.
Though the shows did end up cancelled, the reception for the fanbase should be a clue as to where the characters could come out next. I’m sure fans would be up for a Doom Patrol movie down the line, or some kind of cameo in another hero’s solo adventure. I would personally love to see a Teen Titans live-action movie (with Ray Fisher as Cyborg; but now it looks like that won’t be happening).
For now, catch Doom Patrol and Titans on their final season runs on HBO Max.
