Fans of the original Teen Titans animated series may see a possible return, along with a potential sixth season of Teen Titans Go! In response to fan art of a screenshot from next month's Teen Titans Go! to the Movies redrawn in the style of the original Cartoon Network series that ran from 2003-2006, series star Tara Strong made a surprise announcement about the long-dormant animated series possible return hinging on the upcoming spinoff film's performance.
"Just so y’all know...at a movie session today, they told us that if the
#TTGO movie kicks all butts they would do our show at the same time as #Season6 ...FOR REALS!" tweeted Strong. "So go see it! Even if you hate us!!"

While the current Teen Titans animated series Teen Titans Go! has been well-received since its debut in 2013, fans of the original show have been vocal about their preference of the older series, citing Go!'s radical shift in tone and animation style, along with no narrative connection to the original.
Running for four seasons between 2003 and 2006 with the 2006 animated film Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo serving as the series finale, the original adaptation of DC's popular superteam was one of the most critically acclaimed shows during its run on Cartoon Network.
With just under two months until Teen Titans Go! to the Movies opens in theaters everywhere, the fates of two different animated incarnations of the team are riding on its success at the box office.
Arriving in theaters on July 27, Teen Titans Go! to the Movies features returning series stars Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Hynden Walch as Starfire, Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, and Tara Strong as Raven, joined by Kristen Bell and Will Arnett, with appearances by Nicolas Cage as Superman, Halsey as Wonder Woman and Lil Yachty as Green Lantern. It is directed by series developer Aaron Horvath and series producer Peter Rida Michail.
