Drew Van Acker (“Pretty Little Liars”) will join the DC Universe series “Titans,” taking on the role of Aqualad for the second season.
In the comics, he’s a founding member of the Titans and Aquaman’s eager sidekick. This version also goes by the name Garth, was born in Atlantis and is a member of the royal court who trained under Aquaman to be a protector of life in and out of the ocean.
Garth would eventually step out from the shadow of his mentor to become his own hero as a Titan along with many other former sidekicks.
He joins fellow second season additions like Esai Morales as Deathstroke/Slade Wilson, Chella Man as Jericho, Chelsea T. Zhang as Ravager/Rose Wilson, Joshua Orpin as Conor Kent and Iain Glen as Bruce Wayne.
The first season of “Titans” is currently available for streaming on the DC Universe digital platform in North America and on Netflix around the rest of the world.
