Titans Season 4 Release Date, Cast, And Plot – What We Know So Far
What happens when teenagers with extraordinary abilities grow up with the weight of the world on their shoulders? The answer is that they wind up pretty messed up, as evidenced from the latest superhero T.V. show to take fans by storm — “Titans.” They all have their personal demons, which sometimes puts them at odds with one another, but they manage to come together as a single unit to take down a plethora of bad guys over the course of the three seasons the show has had so far.
The kids certainly haven’t had time to slouch, seeing how they’ve already gone against Trigon (Seamus Dever), Deathstroke (Esai Morales), and Scarecrow (Vincent Kartheiser). As much as these teens would like to kick back and relax for a bit, we have a feeling they’ll be back on their feet in no time. Warner Bros. announced at the 2021 DC FanDome event that the show would return for a fourth season. So what’s in store for the Titans next? Here’s what we know so far about Season 4.

What's the release date for Titans Season 4?
While we know Season 4 of “Titans” will come at some point, HBO Max has yet to announce a release date. It probably won’t come for a while, especially considering how Season 3 aired its finale on October 21, 2021. It will take some time for new episodes to air, but our best guess is that next season will come at some point in either the fall or winter of 2022.
Season 1 of “Titans” premiered in October 2018, while Season 2 came in September 2019. The show didn’t have any new episodes in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it returned in August 2021. It seems to come out during the second half of the year, and with filming resuming across all major Hollywood productions, there shouldn’t be any significant delays for Season 4.
Who's in the cast for Titans Season 4?
You should expect all of your favorite pint-sized superheroes to return for Season 4. The Season 3 finale saw what remains of the Titans hopping aboard a bus to return to the Bay Area, so we know we’ll see more of Dick Grayson (Brenton Thwaites), Starfire (Anna Diop), Raven (Teagan Croft), Beast Boy (Ryan Potter), and Superboy (Joshua Orpin). The newest face in the Titans crew is Tim Drake (Jay Lycurgo), who’s skipping the whole “Batman sidekick” aspect of being Robin and heading off straight into a team of his very own.
Other heroes, such as Dove (Minka Kelly) and Jason Todd (Curran Walters), will likely make appearances at some point. But based on the last episode of the third season, it doesn’t seem like they’ll play integral roles going into next season.
There have so far been no announcements concerning other heroes joining the fray, but it would make the most sense for Roy Harper to get into the mix at some point. He’s been name-dropped several times at this point, so it’s only a matter of time before he enters the picture. There’s also the question of who the big bad for Season 4 will be. There are still plenty of mainstay Titans antagonists to enter the picture, so there’s always a chance we could wind up with a live-action appearance by the Brotherhood of Evil or H.I.V.E.
What's the plot of Titans Season 4?
Similar to everything else, there’s currently no information on what path Season 4 will take. So far in the series, the show’s done an excellent job of adapting popular comic storylines into a live-action, condensed environment. Season 2 was essentially an adaptation of “The Judas Contract,” while Season 3 took most of its influences from the “Under the Red Hood” arc. No big bads or story arcs were really hinted at in the Season 3 finale outside of the reveal that A.R.G.U.S. had been operating in Gotham the entire time. But perhaps a new organization could enter the fray.
Season 4 would do well to introduce the Brotherhood of Evil as part of a “Friends and Foes Alike” adaptation. This storyline gives the lion’s share of attention to Beast Boy, who’s sorely been overlooked as a character on “Titans” since he was first introduced. The Brotherhood of Evil is responsible for his parents’ deaths, so it would give him a chance to display more emotion than what we’ve gotten so far.
That’s far from the only stellar “Teen Titans” compilation out there, and Season 4 could always take bits and pieces from various stories to create something wholly its own. “Titans” remains a premier HBO Max property, and it’s exciting to think of where it will go next.
