When Will the Season 4 of Titans be Released?
It took a while before the team updated the fans on the release of the fourth season. The third season was aired in October 2021. So, it had already been a long for the viewers to get a hint of what the fourth season will be like.
Soon, the makers released the trailer, and the fans couldn’t contain their excitement. You will be happy to know that the first two episodes of season 4 have already been released to watch. These episodes premiered on the 3rd of November. Reportedly, the makers are trying to break this season into two parts. So, after the 1st of December, Titans will take a mid-season break. The remaining six episodes will be aired sometime in 2023.
It is a new airing strategy for the series that has never taken such a break from the middle of the season in the previous installments. There is no update on the release date of part two. However, we expect to get the answer in December when the first part closes.
What is the Plot of Season 4?
The synopsis of season 4 goes like this:
“Having saved Gotham, the Titans hit the road to head back to San Francisco. But after a stop in Metropolis, they find themselves in the crosshairs of a supernatural cult with powers, unlike anything they have faced before.”
It appears that the main villain in this season would be Sebastian Blood or Brother Blood.
The actor, Joseph Morgan, who plays him, tweeted about going into the fourth season.
“After this past week of shooting #DCTitans, I am convinced you guys are gonna really appreciate the journey Sebastian goes on. It’s absolutely your cup of tea. Dark. Damaged. Emotional. Vulnerable. And Vengedul, so very vengeful.”
The third season did not tease the villain of the subsequent installment. It rather chose to focus on wrapping up the plot line of its own season. Like any good superhero narrative, we see good conquering evil and morality saving the day with the overarching theme of second chances.
You have to watch the fourth season to figure out what happens next.
Highlights of the First Two Episodes of Season 4?
The makers premiered the first two episodes of the fourth season on the 3rd of November, 2022.
The first episode is called Lex Luthor, and its synopsis reads:

The second episode is called Mother Mayhem, and its synopsis reads:
“In the wake of an unexpected demise, Conner finds himself framed for murder while the Titans try to piece together Luthor’s suspicious connection to Rachael’s haunting and clear their teammate’s name.”
The fans have loved both episodes of this season. They cannot wait to learn what follows the storyline.

Why Should I Watch Titans?
If you have not watched Titans, now is the time to catch up with the show.
When it aired initially, the show seemed like a massive misstep in the DC universe. The fans were not excited about the drastic change in tone and characterization. They expected it to be an inferior show. But do you know, this is not what they got?
Instead of going with something safe and light-hearted, DC elected to do something risky and fresh. It traded the happy and bubbly personalities for the characters, who have severe mental issues, troubled histories, and a lot of unfinished business. They have superpowers and abilities that end up serving lifesavers and their own forms of curses.
Here are the reasons why you should watch Titans.
A New Take on the Familiar Characters
It would have been extremely easy for the showrunners to follow the safe route and adopt a regular tone while showcasing this series. However, they begged to differ. They went in the opposite direction and offered the viewers something unique.
The Teen Titans are regularly haunted by their abilities, using them strictly as a means of offsetting far worse possible actions. They have trauma that they wear on their sleeves as there is no other option for them to bear with it. The world established here is not so pleasant or innocent, and the characters on the show reflect it very rightly.
The Mystery-Filled Plot
The mystery-filled plot of the show will keep you on the edge of your seat. Titan is a set of mysteries, and you will constantly find them escalating, unraveling, and widening throughout the seasons.
For instance, Rachel’s history becomes dark and troubling, forcing you to question what she is capable of. Starfire’s amnesia will have you second-guessing and predicting her true purpose on the show.
Even if you get the answers to some questions, there will always be something intentionally left out. It makes the show highly gripping. The plot of Titans is covered with many question marks. You will find the answers yourself watching intently on the chance you can find an answer to at least one of them.
Watch it for the Perfect Cast
Another reason to catch up with the show is its perfect cast. According to the makers, the casting itself has been a difficult process for them; however, totally worth it. Each part of the cast has done justice to their roles. They feel like a natural choice for their respective characters, evoking a great sense of personality and depth whether they are speaking or expressing their emotions.
Proper Dose of Action
The gritty fighting scenes in the show will give you a proper dose of action. Titans have subverted the expectations of fans by showing off how brutal and bloody their action scenes can get. Thus, if you are a fan of this genre, you must add this show to your watchlist.
Many fighting scenes will have you hook your eyes on the screen. The violence on the show has been on the same level as other action-packed series, namely Daredevil and Punisher. Throughout these scenes, you will see blood being a constant sight and visibly-broken bones of the characters a frequent inclusion.
Watch it for the Love of DC
If you are an ardent fan of DC, this series should not be missed. The makers have inculcated fun ways of making their settings feel familiar and like they had a history with DC without needing time to establish it. Titans get to play around in its own version of DCEU.
For instance, Dick talks about taking on classic Batman villains, Donna discusses the lessons she has learned from Wonder woman and casual conversations. You will spot Titans coming face-to-face with these seemingly larger-than-TV characters. However, the best part is that the makers don’t overdo it. Their appearance remains short and special.
The Show Only Gets Better
If you need another reason to add this show to your watchlist, know that Titans will only get better.
The crazy cliffhangers, enticing post-credit stingers, and everything in between keeps you assuming that something great is going to happen in the subsequent season. Throughout its seasons, Titans try to set up a world that may have not the likes of Wonder Woman or Superman appear in the flesh. However, it can shine a spotlight on criminally-underrated characters that do not get enough exposure.
