The Doom Patrol series has been renewed for another season, but there’s a twist.
Doom Patrol is officially coming back for a third season, with the series leaving the DC Universe streaming service for HBO Max. The first two seasons of the comic book drama premiered on DC Universe but it is now moving exclusively to HBO Max. The renewal was announced during the second part of the DC FanDome event.
Produced by Arrowverse veteran Greg Berlanti, Doom Patrol stars Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief. Showrunner Jeremy Carver had the following to say on the renewal:
“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.”
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, added the following regarding Doom Patrol‘s move to the WarnerMedia streaming service:
“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 second season of Doom Patrol ended with a cliffhanger after production the series was paused due to the ongoing pandemic. Heroic Hollywood’s Eammon Jacobs called the second season “delightfully horrific,” saying that it’s “definitely worth your time if you like your superheroes with a little more substance.”
Doom Patrol season three is set to premiere in 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the series and make sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more content.
