DOOM PATROL Renewed For Season Three; Will Now Stream Exclusively On HBO Max

While it looked grim for a moment following that massive cliffhanger, it looks like DC's Doom Patrol will indeed return for a third season, except it will now stream exclusively on HBO Max!

Ahead of their DC FanDome panel this afternoon, Warner Bros. TV had some exciting news to share as it's been officially confirmed that Doom Patrol has been renewed for a third season, set to debut sometime in 2021. 

However, unlike the previous two seasons, season three will stream exclusively on HBO Max, which is a decision many saw coming as the DC Universe begins to unload their small catalog of original titles onto other platforms under the WarnerMedia umbrella. Stargirl was the first to move, heading to The CW for season two, and decisions on the fates of the respective third seasons of Titans and Harley Quinn may be coming later today.

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 in a statement following the announcement. 

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, production was unable to be completed on the season two finale, resulting in the final episode of the season ending on a massive cliffhanger that will now presumably be resolved in the opening hour of season three. 

DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, 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.

Doom Patrol features:
Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder/The Chief
Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman
Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man
April Bowlby as Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman
Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg
Diane Guerrero as Kay Challis/Crazy Jane

Doom Patrol returns 2021

[frick] that. HBO Max can't even do 4K HDR that DCU has been able to do for years.

I liked season one better but I enjoyed 2

Season 2 was a bit underwhelming. Feel like they wasted time on less important things and not enough on character progression.

Poor Rita.

I keep forgetting about season 2, I made it through.the first 6 episodes and havent gotten around to finishing it, since the season was a big step down from the first.

@HeavyMetal4Life - That's pretty much where I'm at tbh, I feel the same about this season so far. There's also a bunch of shows I need to continue (that are good) but for some reason I don't feel compelled to watch them at the moment. Weird. 😐
HeavyMetal4Life - 9/12/2020, 11:04 AM
@TexasAvenger - yeah, I'm choosing to watch The Boys instead. Second season just really never got around to justifying being fully invested in it.
TexasAvenger - 9/12/2020, 11:07 AM
@HeavyMetal4Life - I get you. I need to start The Boys season 2 also. I need to keep up with Lovecraft Country as well but my girl really wants to watch it, and she prefers binging shows. So I'll probably wait till all those episodes are released. I've just been watching basketball mostly and now with football back idk when I'll get around to these shows lol.
HeavyMetal4Life - 9/12/2020, 11:08 AM
@TexasAvenger - season 2 of The Boys is certainly better than season 2 of Doom Patrol. Though it also isn't as good as the first season. So far.
I keep hearing about Lovecraft Country.

Oh thank God. I can finish season 2 now without worry.

Doom Patrol renewed, Legends of Tomorrow news, and Bendis is leaving.

@Reeds2Much - That Bendis news is better than the first two stories combined, lol. Good Superman comics? Whodda thought...
