Doom Patrol Season 2

Fans of DC Universe’s Doom Patrol can finally breathe a sigh of relief. DC’s strangest group will return for a third season. The third season will be available exclusively on HBO Max, and the streaming service ordered the third season, which was announced earlier today at DC FanDome.

The new season will see the return of the unusual group of heroes. All episodes from the first two seasons are now available to stream on HBO Max. Season 3 is expected to debut next year on the streaming service.

Speaking on the news, executive producer Jeremy Carver stated: “On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return to Doom Manor. And we are especially thankful for our partners at Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, DC UNIVERSE and, of course, HBO Max.”

HBO Max Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey added: “Doom Patrol came to HBO Max with an already deep and passionate fan base and has risen to the top as one of the most watched Max Originals on the platform. The series sits well in our portfolio and we are glad to greenlight a third season to continue this distinctive style of storytelling that resonates so well with critics and fans alike.”

Here’s a synopsis for the second season:

In the second season, the Doom Patrol – including Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — attempted, once again, to save the world. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the heroes found themselves miniaturized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. They began to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. As each member faced the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they realized they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.

The show is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Jeremy Carver, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Chris Dingess and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers. The series is based on characters created for DC Comics by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
