HBO Max’s Titans is going to introduce even more members into the Bat-family in its upcoming third season. Jay Lycurgo has been cast in a recurring role as the fan favorite third Robin, Tim Drake.
Drake is described as a streetwise kid who’s managed to grow up on the toughest streets without losing his indelible belief in heroism. His easy-going demeanor is backed up by a near-genius mind, a natural detective with a perception of detail far beyond his years. Fans of the “Batman” comics will recall that Drake served with Batman as the third, and most liked, Robin.
Incidentally enough, Lycurgo is next set to appear in a supporting role in Matt Reeves’ upcoming feature “The Batman,” though if he will be playing Drake in the film as well remains unclear. His previous credits include the critically-acclaimed HBO series “I May Destroy You” and the Amazon short “Father of the Bride.”
In the comics, Tim Drake was introduced in 1989 in Batman #436. He would be the third sidekick to take on the mantle of Robin before eventually graduating to a new persona as Red Robin.
Titans season 1 and 2 are currently streaming on HBO Max. No announcement has been made to a season 3 debut date as of yet.
