The Teen Titans may be getting some backup on Teen Titans Go! sometime in the future.
ComicBook.com spoke to the producers of the hit Cartoon Network comedy and they explained why they’re not keen on overloading the show with guest stars.
“I think mostly when we write episodes we’re sort of focused on the cast,” Michael Jelenic says. “We don’t really bring in too many guest stars just because that complicates production and our schedule is very aggressive, as I like to say.”
That said, Teen Titans Go! is coming up on its milestone 200th episode. As the show keep pressing forward, there’s the chance that other characters, including other Titans, may pop up.
“I think if we keep going, and it seems like we’re going to keep going, we’ll probably start exploring some maybe other versions of Teen Titans like Titans East and eventually replace the cast,” Jelenic says.
Titans East was a secondary Teen Titans squad introduced in the original Teen Titans animated series. The team is led by Bumblebee and also includes Speedy, Aqualad, and Mas y Menos. Cyborg was also a member for a time. The team defends Steel City and fills in for the Teen Titans in defending Jump City from time to time.
Teen Titans Go! airs on Cartoon Network.
Inspired by the original Teen Titans from Warner Bros. Animation, Teen Titans Go! features the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in a series of fun, frantic and entirely new comedic adventures on Cartoon Network. Mixing super laughs with its super heroics, Teen Titans Go! focuses on the funny that happens in between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. After all, they may be super heroes, but somebody still has to do the laundry…even if they use their superpowers to do it! When you can turn into any animal or detach your robotic limbs, pranks reach a whole new level as well. And even super heroes have to take Driver’s Ed. to get a license – especially after they’ve wrecked the Batmobile on an unauthorized joy ride to impress a girl! Featuring the principal voice cast from the original series – Greg Cipes, Scott Menville, Tara Strong, Hynden Walch and Khary Payton – Teen Titans Go! captures everything audiences loved about the original Teen Titans while revealing –and reveling in—the lighter side of being a super hero.
