Two beloved DC Comics dramas are coming to an end as HBO Max has announced the final seasons of both Titans and Doom Patrol.
Both shows will end with Season 4, which reportedly comes as no surprise to the show’s producers. Both shows, which were produced by Greg Berlanti, had been developed for the DC Universe and were later absorbed into HBO Max. Titans debuted in 2017, while its spin-off Doom Patrol arrived a year later.
“While it will be the last seasons of Titans and Doom Patrolwe’re very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings,” HBO Max said in a statement (as of THR). “We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for creating such exciting, action-packed, heartfelt series. Thank you Titans showrunner Greg Walker, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Richard Hatem and the team at Weed Road Pictures. To Doom Patrol, we pay tribute to showrunner Jeremy Carver and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Chris Dingess and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson. For four seasons, fans have fallen in love with the Titans and the Doom Patrol, invested in their trials and tribulations and in their legendary battles that saved the world time and time again.”
Doom Patrol showrunner Jeremy Carver questioned the cancellation while also thanking fans, cast and crew.
“To our wonderfully supportive partners at HBO Max, Warner Bros. Tv, Berlanti Productions and DC Studios, thank you for spoiling us for the past four seasons. And what did you smoke?” said Carver “To our brilliant cast, indomitable crew, fearless writers, and most of all to our beautiful fans: thank you all the more. You have made this a once-in-a-lifetime trip.”
In the meantime Titans executive producer Greg Walker hopes the final six episodes will offer closure.
“I am immensely proud of our talented cast, crew and writers and their efforts to bring all 49 episodes to life over the past five years. I could not have asked for better partners in Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television and HBO Max , and from the beginning Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman,” said Walker. “I am incredibly grateful for their unwavering trust throughout this process. Finally, I must thank our incredible fans for their continued support, commitment and the passionate community they have built around our show. We have six episodes left to unleash on the world, which we hope will give our beloved characters the creative closure we all know they deserve.”
