Doom Patrol has officially been renewed for Season 3. The third season is set to premiere in 2021, but will meet a few changes upon its return. Here’s everything we know about it so far, including its release date, cast, plot and where it will air.
Based on comics by the same name, Doom Patrol follows some of the weirdest superheroes you’ll ever meet. They are Robotman (Brendan Fraser and Riley Shanahan), Negative Man (Matt Bomer and Matthew Zuk), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Cyborg (Joivan Wade). Coming and working together as a team, they will try to defeat the surreal supervillains that threaten reality.
The series first premiered on DC Universe last year until HBO Max picked it up for season 2. The episodes were then aired simultaneously on both DC Universe and HBO Max in June. However, while previous seasons were available to stream on both platforms, series three will only be exclusive to HBO Max.
In a statement released by Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max’s head of original content she said, “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.”
Doom Patrol Season 3 Release Date
The second season of the series ended earlier than planned due to coronavirus pandemic shutting down the production. Thus, season 2 had only 9 episodes. However, the show still managed to pull a decent cliffhanger out of its substitute season finale.
Release date for season 3 has yet to be announced as filming has yet to commence, too. On the other hand, it is predicted that the show will return sometime in July 2021, just like its predecessor.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Plot
Season 2 witnesses the team’s efforts to prolong Chief’s life so that he could continue living with his daughter, Dorothy. It’s likely that season 3 will pick up immediately from where it left off. Niles Caulder is almost dying while his daughter Dorothy takes on the Candlemaker alone to save him and her friends. With the others being turned into wax and Jane’s fate in the Underground unclear, season 3 has a lot of storylines to resolve.
