It has been reported that the DC Universe on HBO Max is continuing to shrink as more cuts are being made. The most recent shows to be affected are "Titans" and "Doom Patrol," which are now set to air their final seasons. 

The producers of the shows were not surprised by the decision, as they could see the writing on the wall when James Gunn and Peter Safran were brought in to revive the DC franchise. 

However, the decision to end the shows produced by Greg Berlanti was made before the arrival of Gunn and Safran. The writers of the shows have made sure to shape the final season arcs to give the characters proper conclusions at the end of season 4.

We are sad to announce that the upcoming seasons of Titans and Doom Patrol will be their last. However, we are very proud of these shows and cannot wait for the fans to see how they come to an exciting conclusion. We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. 

Television for creating such thrilling, action-packed and emotionally engaging series," said a representative from HBO Max in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. 

"For four seasons, fans have grown to love the characters of Titans and Doom Patrol, following their struggles and triumphs, and watching as they saved the world repeatedly."

"I am incredibly proud of the talented cast, crew, and writing team that have brought our show to life over the past five years. I am also very grateful to our dedicated fans for their unwavering support and for creating a passionate community around the show," said the person. "We still have six episodes left to air, and we hope that these episodes will give our beloved characters the fitting conclusion they deserve."

‘Titans’ Cast on Moving to Metropolis, Meeting Lex Luthor & More 

When it came to deciding where Titans would go in Season 4, it was an easy decision for us. We asked ourselves, where do we want to take the show next? We had been traveling in an RV and were heading to San Francisco, so we had to pick a new location. We ultimately chose between Las Vegas and Metropolis," said executive producer Greg Walker.

Walker and the series' stars, Ryan Potter, Brenton Thwaites, Joshua Orpin, and executive producer Greg Walker, participated in an interview with Damian Holbrook at New York Comic Con 2022, during which they teased the upcoming season of the HBO Max series, which is set to return on November 3. They also discussed the supernatural cult with powers that the Titans will be facing.

"Conner will be introduced to one of his two dads in Season 4, and it may not be the one you expect," said Joshua Orpin, who plays Conner Kent/Super Boy. He went on to say that this encounter will be the "driving force" for his character this season. "Lex Luthor, played by Titus Welliver, makes an appearance. The Titans are hesitant about Conner meeting him in person for the first time, but Conner is driven by a burning curiosity to go," Orpin said.

However, team leader Dick is worried about this situation as he is finding it difficult to manage the team. While Lex Luthor may be a supervillain and a potential negative influence on Superboy, Thwaites' character, Dick, believes that everyone has the right to know their parents, having lost his at a young age.

On the other hand, things may not be going well for Gar this season, but it may not be a bad thing. "It ultimately serves his higher self and it's a really exciting storyline where Gar gets to contribute in a metaphorical sense," said Ryan Potter who plays Gar Logan/Beast Boy. "His personal growth will help resolve some major conflicts throughout the season."

They discuss what's in store for the characters, the new supersuits, and who is envious of whose suit. They also reveal who will be getting a "major costume upgrade" and why you should be prepared for the premiere.
