Teen Titans Go! is an American animated television series based on the DC Comics fictional superhero team, the Teen Titans. The series was announced following the popularity of DC Nation's New Teen Titans shorts,[3][4] both of which are based on the 2003 Teen Titans TV series. Teen Titans Go! is a more comedic take on the DC Comics franchise, dealing with situations that happen outside of saving the world.[4]

Sporting a new animation style, Teen Titans Go! serves as a comedic spin-off with no continuity to the previous series. Many DC characters make cameo appearances and are referenced in the background. The original principal voice cast returns to reprise their respective roles. This series is a humorous take on what the Titans do when they are not saving the world.

On April 29, 2015, the series was confirmed to be renewed for a third season.[5]


  • Robin (voiced by Scott Menville) - Robin is the power-mad, perfectionist leader of the Teen Titans. He is continually annoyed that his teammates do not take crime fighting as seriously as he does, though he can be very arrogant and insecure at times. He is head-over-heels in love with Starfire, and will do anything to get her.
  • Raven (voiced by Tara Strong) - Raven is a cynical, sarcastic, deadpan half-demon girl who would rather be left alone. She is the daughter of the evil interdimensional demon Trigon. When enraged she manifests four red eyes, sharp teeth and a distorted demonic voice. In this version, her short hair is black as opposed to being all violet-purple as it was in the original series. She also enjoys an in-show called Pretty Pretty Pegasus (a reference to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and its fandom). It is revealed throughout the course of the show that Raven harbors romantic feelings towards Beast Boy although she keeps them secret from the rest of the Titans.
  • Starfire (voiced by Hynden Walch) - Starfire is an extraterrestrial alien princess, second in line for the throne of the distant planet Tamaran. She struggles to fit in and learn the ways of Earth. She is very optimistic, kind-hearted and is almost always in a good mood. When angry or tricked, her eyes glow bright green and she throws a barrage of starbolts (bright green-colored, glowing energy blasts) from her hands and may attack her own teammates. She is the only Titan to get married. Starfire was forced to marry a Tamaranian chief, he was later killed by Robin right after Starfire's wedding. At that wedding, Robin throws a fit at the church. Robin has a crush on Starfire and is hoping he will marry her.
  • Cyborg (voiced by Khary Payton) - Cyborg is a laid-back half-human, half-robot who's more interested in eating pizza and playing video games than in fighting crime. He also has a strong romantic crush on Jinx, despite her being one of his enemies.
  • Beast Boy (voiced by Greg Cipes) - Beast Boy is a laid-back and at-times irritating prankster named for his human-to-animal metamorphism powers. He is best friends with Cyborg and has a very obvious crush on Raven and is always calling her "Mama".

Common Sense Media gave the show 4 out of 5 stars and called it "Superheroes' new look, comical feel invites younger kids".[7] IGN gave the pilot episode a 7.8 out of 10, a "Good" score on the review scale, stating that "DC Nation revamps the beloved Teen Titans series for a new generation -- with pretty fun results".[8]

Writing for Slant Magazine, Lee Wang gave the show 2 stars out of 4, criticizing the lack of emotional depth compared to its predecessor, the Flash-based animation style commonly found on the network, and generic humor: "If not for the actors, whose talents can't save this lackluster material, Teen Titans Go would offer little to even the most ardent Titans nostalgists and completists."[9]

The pilot episode brought in 2 million viewers. On June 11, 2013, Cartoon Network renewed Teen Titans Go! for a second season, citing successful ratings.[10] On April 29, 2015, the series was renewed for a third season.[11]
