Netflix Picks Up Worldwide “Titans” Rights

Netflix Picks Up Worldwide Titans Rights

It’s official, Netflix has acquired the international streaming rights to the DC Universe series “Titans” and will broadcast the series everywhere it’s available excluding the United States and China.

This marks the latest instance of Netflix acquiring international rights to a new series an American network or streaming service following the likes of “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Riverdale,” “Better Call Saul” and “Designated Survivor” with each episode appearing on the service within hours of the U.S. broadcast.

The eleven-episode series is due to premiere on DC Universe, the just-launched DC branded streaming service, on October 12th. The story follows a group of young soon-to-be super heroes: Dick Grayson, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy, and more. Brenton Thwaites, Anna Diop, Teagan Croft, Ryan Potter, Minka Kelly and Alan Ritchson co-star.

For now the deal appears to be only for this series, no word if the other shows coming to the service like “Doom Patrol,” “Swamp Thing” and “Stargirl” will follow the same pattern.
