Titans is getting a vote of confidence at DC Universe.

The one-month-old streaming service has placed an order for a second season of its first original series.

it follows "young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic Teen Titans franchise," according to the official description.

"Dick Grayson and Rachel Roth, a special young girl possessed by a strange darkness, get embroiled in a conspiracy that could bring Hell on Earth."

It was revealed just a few days ago that Netflix had taken the streaming rights to Titans in territories outside of the U.S. and China. 

This will likely give the show a substantial financial boost in a similar manner to what happened when Star Trek: Discovery was snapped up by the streamer from CBS All Access.

With DC Universe being new, this is a good business move because it will raise the profile of the first series and get people hooked in Titans universe. 

With Doom Patrol set to follow on from the events of Titans Season 1, it should help drum up interest for that spin-off.
