There will be more superhero adventures—HBO Max has renewed Doom Patrol for a third season!
The live-action drama premiered in February 2019 and was developed for and steamed on DC’s online platform, DC Universe. The second season was streamed on DC Universe and HBO Max.
Doom Patrol is about a group of superhero outcasts including Cliff Steele a.k.a. Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor a.k.a. Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Jane a.k.a. Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Rita Farr a.k.a. Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Victor Stone a.k.a. Cyborg (Joivan Wade). All of these superheroes have experienced trauma which gave them their special abilities and with the guidance on The Chief (Timothy Dalton), they unite to investigate the world’s strangest phenomena. After The Chief disappears, they’re called into action by Cyborg on a mission they can’t refuse.
“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,” said executive producer Jeremy Carver.
“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,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max. “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.”
The third season of Doom Patrol is set to return in 2021.
