Red Hood is a 2016 television show that is a spin-off to the successful AMC series The Dark Knight. It was created by Danny Raymond, one of the creators of The Dark Knight, who is joined by Don Nygma. It follows Jason Todd's journey of being the masked vigilante Red Hood in the city of Blüdhaven. Much of the story is taken from plotlines that were normally used for Batman or Nightwing storylines along with unused ideas for The Dark Knight.

The pilot of Red Hood aired as two episodes during season three of The Dark Knight. The ratings and popularity of the episodes were high enough for AMC to commission it for more episodes. Red Hood premiered on Tuesday, August 9 at 10:00 PM. It aired after the season four premiere of The Dark Knight and was followed by Talking Dark. The series received decent reviews from critics and fans. Although the reviews of the show were considered to be sub-par to The Dark Knight, it still had good ratings and was considered a success.

After The Dark Knight ended, AMC decided to make season five of Red Hood its final season. They moved the show along with Talking Dark to Thursday nights. The show ended on November 17, 2020.
