The second season was initially planned to follow the events of the original Season 1 finale, which would have seen Dick Grayson assume the identity of Nightwing and establish H.I.V.E. as the Titans' next adversaries. After the original Season 1 finale was pulled, elements of the episode were given to the Season 2 premiere Titans: Trigon (2019) which resolved that Trigon story as intended. However, H.I.V.E. was replaced by Deathstroke, while Dick Grayson's arc into Nightwing was re-envisioned to conclude in the Season 2 finale.

Superboy's origin and costume draws heavily from how he was depicted in the Teen Titans volume 3 comics that were written by executive producer Geoff Johns and drawn by artist Mike McKone. Johns added to Superboy's post-crisis origin where not only was he a clone of Superman, but that of Lex Luthor as well. Also when he is wearing clothes, Superboy is wearing the iconic black t-shirt and jeans look McKone gave him starting in the third volume of the Teen Titans comic.

A version of Titans Tower that is located in San Francisco, California is seen on this show, but unlike the comics, the building is not shaped as a "T". The Tower was the headquarters built by Bruce Wayne for the original Titans. In the comics, the original Teen Titans operated out of Titans Lair, a one-level cavern located beneath a cliff adjacent to the Gotham City River. The original Titans Tower first appeared in "The New Teen Titans" comics and was built by Silas Stone as a gift to his son Cyborg/Victor Stone (who was omitted from this series, but was instead placed on the spin off series Doom Patrol (2019)) after his son's accident. The second Titans Tower building was re-located to San Francisco starting with the third volume re-launch of the comic by executive producer Geoff Johns and Mike McKone which coincided with the west coast Titans Tower from the Teen Titans (2003) animated series.

After the 5th episode of Season 2, Titans: Deathstroke (2019), DC Universe made a poll that allowed fans to vote if they wanted Jason Todd/Robin to either live or die after the episode ended with him falling from a 50 story building. The inspiration for this poll comes from a poll DC had 31 years earlier where fans actually called in and voted the fate of Jason Todd/Robin in the "A Death in the Family" story from the comics.
