It’s official: There’s another DC TV show on the way to add to your watch ist alongside Arrow, Supergirl, Flash, and like a dozen more at this point, and this time it’s a live-action Teen Titans show, which has long been in development limbo. But there’s a twist—it’s not going to be on TV, and neither is the next season of Young Justice.


Warner Bro. has just confirmed that Titans and Young Justice’s third season—titled Young Justice: Outsiders—will headline a new DC-focused digital streaming service next year. Not details were confirmed about the new platform, other than that it will “deliver an immersive experience designed just for DC fans,” so expect more than Titans and Young Justice to come to the service.

A Titans TV show had been in the works at TNT, but the show was scrapped last year. It’s hard to tell how much of that plan remains in this new version—which will be executive produced by producer Akiva Goldsman, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and DC CW TV masterminds Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter—draws on the scrapped show, but it will seemingly at least star a few classic Titan characters. Dick Grayson, Starfire, and Raven are all mentioned in the press release, describing the show as following “a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe,” as Dick prepares to lead a new team of young heroes to safeguard the world.

Meanwhile, Young Justice’s long-awaited third season will tackle the dark concept of meta-human trafficking, as the team and society at large is “caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy.”

Great, another streaming service I have to pay for to get a single TV show. Between this and CBS trying to hide Star Trek behind an online subscription, TV piracy is about to go through a new renaissance.
