What time and date does 'Titans' Season 4 release? And everything about HBO Max's DC series
'Titans' Season 4 is the perfect storm after the rather calm final minutes of the previous season's finale. After the release date of November 3 was announced during the 'Titans' panel at the New York Comic-Con, a spooky teaser was released hinting at what was in store for Dick Grayson and Co. The show originally made its debut in 2018 as a darker and more violent take on DC's 'Teen Titans' team and will now continue in the same vein.
In Season 3, the base shifted from San Francisco to Gotham after the early episode showed that Jason Todd (Curran Walters) seemingly met his end at the hands of the Joker. Eventually, it was revealed that he was resurrected by Crane who had his own plan of drowning the city with his hallucinogens. The season also saw the death of Hank/Hawk (Alan Ritchson) and Dawn (Minka Kelly) leaving the team.
The finale of Season 3 saw the unit launch an attack to stop Crane from executing his diabolical plan. Jason reunited with the Titans in his bid to stop the evil genius and stop they did as they use the Lazarus Pit's life-regenerating ability to bring back the dead from Crane's hallucinogen. The episode ends with Jason parting his ways with Bruce Wayne. Donna Troy has presumably joined Argus and Blackfire heads back to Tamaran.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Walker relived how he pitched the idea of Lex Luthor to Welliver. “You usually have to do this whole dog-and-pony show to get an actor to do the show, but when I called to kind of lure him in, I could barely get a word in.” He added: “We were talking on the phone, and he was just walking through his library, telling me about all his Wolfman/Perez Titans editions. He's a giant, giant fan. He'd watched every episode of the show and could tell me about certain stories, certain shots. It was the most unexpected call I've ever had."
The showrunner also hinted at Connor/Superboy's Lex side of his persona: “What shakes Conner up is an identity story. He's explored his Superman self, but he has not really explored his Lex self. What does that mean when you do? What happens when you give yourself the keys to the car? Does it start driving the wrong way at rush hour, 100 miles an hour?"
