TNT Cancels DC’s Teen Titans TV Show

The beloved characters of the Teen Titans franchise won’t be gracing the small screen of TNT, anymore.  Today, it was announced that the DC drama won’t be greenlit, after all.  This comes as a surprise as TNT President Kevin Reilly had initially said to TV Line, after meeting with the show’s co-creator Akiva Goldsman,

“I think it’s going to end up being a very, very interesting offering, I think it’s going to be excellent.”

Months later, Reilly has changed his tune stating, 

“We decided it wasn’t where we wanted to go,”.

TNT had only ordered a pilot, so this isn’t a huge loss to the network.  However, this news comes as a bummer to the fans excited for Teen Titans to get an actual live action show.  It looks like we’ll just have to wait a little longer and enjoy such shows as Teen Titans Go or the previous, more serious, adaptation of Teen Titans.

Written by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman and executive-turned-scribe Marc Haimes, Titans was to revolve around the eponymous group of young superheroes-to-be from the DC Universe. The action series centers on Dick Grayson — better known for his alter ego as Robin — who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new superheroes including Starfire, Raven and many others. Goldsman executive produced, with Haimes serving as co-executive producer for WBTV’s cable division Warner Horizon. – Deadline
