How Many Episodes of 'Titans' Season 3 Are There?

Titans landed on HBO Max yesterday with three new episodes to mark the launch of Season 3.

While fans of the DC Comics show will be delighted to see their superheroes back on the screen, many are wondering how long the new season will be now it's arrived on a new channel.

The first two seasons aired on the DC Universe streaming service, before eventually being shown on TNT as well. Both seasons received praise from fans and critics, before HBO picked up the show to air on its own streaming service.

How Many Episodes Are in Titans Season 3?

Prior to Season 3 launching, HBO Max confirmed that the first three episodes of the series would launch on August 12, 2021, and that the new episodes would then air weekly on Thursdays until October 21, 2021.

With no breaks announced, an episode every week until October 21 mean that there will be 13 episodes in Season 3 of Titans in total.

Season 3 started yesterday with the three episodes titled: "Barbara Gordon," "Red Hood" and "Hank & Dove." Next week's episode will be titled "Blackfire."

This mirrors Season 2, which contained 13 episodes, while the first season had just 11 installments. The first two seasons of Titans are available to watch on HBO Max now.

The comics will feature the same lineup of heroes that fans will recognize from the tv series Titans.
