HBO Max has announced that DC’s “Titans” and “Doom Patrol” will end after their fourth seasons. Both series originated on DC Universe, a now comic only service that once provided a large backlog of past DC Comics titles, along with new series like “Harley Quinn.”
“While these will be the final seasons of Titans and Doom Patrol, we are very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings,” an HBO Max spokesperson said to The Hollywood Reporter (THR). “We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for making such thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt series.”
The statement continued to thank Titans showrunner Greg Walker, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Richard Hatem, and the team at Weed Road Pictures.
“I’m immensely proud of our gifted cast, crew and writing staff and their efforts in bringing to life all 49 episodes over the last five-plus years,” “Titans” executive producer Greg Walker said to THR. “I couldn’t have asked for better partners in Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, and HBO Max, and from the beginning, Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman. I’m incredibly grateful for their unyielding trust throughout this process. Lastly, I have to thank our incredible fans for their continued support, engagement, and the passionate community they’ve built around our show. We have six episodes left to unleash upon the world that we hope will give our beloved characters the creative closure we all know they deserve.”
According to James Gunn, DC’s new co-chairmen and co-CEO of DC Studios, the decision to end both series was made before he took on his new role.
“The decision to end the series precedes us,” Gunn said on Twitter. “But I certainly wish the best for the talented group of creators, actors, and the rest of the crew that produced both shows.”
Both shows are on a season four hiatus with premiere dates for their final episodes still to be determined.
