Showrunner Greg Walker told MTV News that they’re still using aspects of the finale for the upcoming second season.
“We’re cannibalizing some of the stuff from Episode 12 [for the premiere],” said Walker. “We thought it was such a good cliffhanger at the end of 11. And we wanted to go for an even bigger, better Season 2 opener. We had a big idea, and our friends at DC bought it.”
Another Villain In Titans Season 2?
Raven and other members will have to deal with the threat of Trigon. He was teased throughout the first season. However, the sophomore season will introduce a new villain, as teased by Walker.
“Yeah. It’s really fun to be able to you know where we’re going to go with it,” he added. “We’re going to also use [the Season 2 premiere] to launch a new villain. And well, because Trigon’s role in canon is so huge, we felt like we really needed to give him a really big episode. You know, the kind you can launch a season with.”
Trigon Will Be A Bigger Threat In Season 2
Walker then explained his reasons for the change, with an intention to make Trigon a bigger threat.
“We’ve started in on another episode that will finalize the Trigon story, and it felt like it needed to do two things: end one season and launch another,” Walker said to Entertainment Weekly. “We got really excited about the way to launch a new season with that episode and pitched it to our partners at DC and Warner Brothers, and they signed on. We shot a piece that we’re going to use, and then we’re going to incorporate it into where we want to launch the new season.”
