Fans of DC Universe‘s live-action Titans series already know that the series is bringing on some “powerful” new names when the series returns for its second season (see below) – but that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about some of the first season’s familiar faces. Actor Curran Walters aka Robin aka Jason Todd is getting the bump up from recurring to series regular, a move Walters appeared to hint at through social media:
Warner Bros. Television confirmed Walters’ new status with entertainment website ComicBook.com, which would see Jason Todd return to the series for the first time proper since first season episode “Jason Todd.” Walters did appear in season finale “Dick Grayson,” but that “Jason Todd” was nothing more than part of a fantasy created by Trigon to enslave Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites).
Walters will be joining a sophomore season that also includes:
● Esai Morales’ (Ozark) Slade Wilson is known for being DC’s deadliest assassin. While serving his country, Slade became an elite soldier before government testing enhanced his physiology to near superhuman levels, putting him on a path of darkness and revenge. To his family, Slade is a father and husband, but to the rest of the world, he is feared by many as the infamous Deathstroke; selling his services to the highest bidder as the ruthless assassin that never gives up and never misses.
● Daughter of the deadly assassin Deathstroke, Chelsea T. Zhang‘s ( Andi Mack) Rose Wilson was forced to undergo the same procedure that granted her father nearly superhuman abilities, becoming a weapon known as Ravager. Ever resentful, she seeks out the Titans not only for their protection but to get back at her father. Knowing how dangerous it is to be the offspring of their deadliest foe, the Titans take her in but that doesn’t necessarily mean they trust her.
● Mute after his father failed to rescue him from having his vocal cords severed by assassins, Chella Man‘s (YouTube influencer/activist) Jericho has the unique ability to possess anyone just by making eye contact.
As we saw at the very end of the freshman year finale, “The Deathstroke Bunch” won’t be the only additions to the second season. Joshua Orpin’s (The Blake Mysteries: Ghost Stories) Conner Kent/Superboy is the angsty teenager of steel searching for purpose and the truth about his past. While looking for answers, he crashes into the world of the Titans where he finds an unlikely home and surrogate family as well as revelations that carry more complications than he ever bargained for.
DC Universe’s Titans stars Brenton Thwaites (Richard “Dick” Grayson / Robin), Anna Diop (Koriand’r / Kory Anders / Starfire), Teagan Croft (Rachel Roth / Raven), and Ryan Potter (Garfield “Gar” Logan / Beast Boy); as well as recently- announced cast member Joshua Orpin (Conner Kent / Superboy).
