Young Justice: Outsiders and live-action Titans will launch on DC’s digital service in 2018
Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment announced today that a new live-action DC Comics drama series Titans and Warner Bros. Animation’s Young Justice: Outsiders will air exclusively on a DC-branded, direct-to-consumer digital service in 2018. Titans comes to us from executive producers Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter. Young Justice: Outsiders is the third season of the Young Justice series. The digital service is operated by Warner Bros. Digital Networks Group and will “deliver an immersive experience designed just for DC fans.”
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever. The show will be written by Akiva Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), President and CCO of DC Entertainment Geoff Johns (The Flash, Arrow) and Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl).
In Young Justice: Outsiders, the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of super-powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. In the highly anticipated new season, the team faces its greatest challenge yet as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy. Equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, Young Justice reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network. This passionate fan support set the stage for the new third season.
Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action) will executive produce. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Gargoyles) will produce the Warner Bros. Animation series. Emmy Award-winner Phil Bourassa (Young Justice, Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract) serves as the series’ art director.
