Greg Berlanti-produced DC series Titans and Doom Patrol will both end after their current seasons on HBO Max, it was announced today. The news broke across The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline Hollywood, and Variety, with a spokesperson for HBO Max confirming the news to IGN 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. We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for making such thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt series. We thank Titans showrunner Greg Walker, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Richard Hatem, and the team at Weed Road Pictures. For Doom Patrol, we celebrate showrunner Jeremy Carver and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Chris Dingess and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson. 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 DC Movies in (Chronological) Order
Both are on their fourth seasons that have been divided into two parts, and both also came from the since-shuttered streaming service DC Universe.
The news comes as Warner Bros. Discovery continues to take drastic cost-cutting measures, including removing a wide array of shows from HBO Max and axing the Batgirl movie altogether. DC’s film and television slate is also being re-examined at large under the new leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran.
“I’m immensely proud of our gifted cast, crew, and writing staff and their efforts in bringing to life all forty nine episodes over the last five plus years,” Titans executive producer Greg Walker said in a statement. “I couldn’t have asked for better partners in Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, and HBO Max, and from the beginning, Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman. I’m incredibly grateful for their unyielding trust throughout this process. Lastly, I have to thank our incredible fans for their continued support, engagement, and the passionate community they’ve built around our show. We have six episodes left to unleash upon the world that we hope will give our beloved characters the creative closure we all know they deserve.”
“To our wonderfully supportive partners at HBO Max, Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions, and DC Studios, thank you for indulging us these past four seasons,” added Doom Patrol executive producer Jeremy Carver. “Also, what were you smoking? To our brilliant cast, indomitable crew, fearless writing staff and, most of all, to our beautiful fans: thank you all the more. You made this a once-in-a-lifetime ride.”
