DOOM PATROL Season 2 Set To Premiere This June As HBO Max Unveils Summer Slate

Despite a somewhat divisive season finale, Doom Patrol was arguably the best thing to come out of the now struggling DC Universe streaming service, and fans have been anxiously awaiting official word on a second season.

Now, HBO Max has unveiled its second wave slate of Max Originals to debut throughout the summer, and we'll be rejoining Robot Man, Crazy Jane and the rest of the misfit heroes much sooner than expected.

Following the streamer's launch later this month, the next wave of titles coming to the platform begins Thursday, June 18th with the debut of the entire first season of the unscripted kids adventure competition series Karma, and that'll be followed by Doom Patrol Season 2 on June 25th (it will also be available on DC Universe).

Also on the slate: Esme & Roy, Search Party Season 3, Adventure Time: Distant Lands- BMO, Expecting Amy, The House of Ho, An American Pickle, and much more.

You'll find the full lineup here, and we also have a synopsis and poster for Doom Patrol Season 2 below.

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.

Are you guys looking forward to more Doom Patrol? Let us know in the comments.

@soberchimera - Completely agree. It's a crime that Swamp Thing was cancelled. A truly great show.

Doom Patrol was the Best to come from the DC Streaming service? In what reality? I could barely get through the second episode, and then gave up on it. It was too cheaply made, too self aware, and had characters that were pretty much irredeemable. Crazy Jane was the best part of the show.

@pclark - You obviously didn't watch the show. Who is irredeemable by episode 2? Get the [frick] outta here.

@Battabing - I should have said unlikeable and uninteresting. I wasn't gripped. I was in a complete state of ungrippedness. Totally unsmegging ungripped. ;-) Which is why I stopped watching it because at the same time I was trying to make sure I saw the entirety of Swamp Thing, which was much better. IMO.

@pclark - Sorry, but Swamp Thing was not better than Doom Patrol; not even close.

@Battabing - it easily was fanatic

@Battabing - You are right, but in the wrong order. ;-)

Probably the best live action comic adaption since DD Season 1. ❤️

Larry Trainor/Matt Bomer were phenomenal.

Just trash all this stuff from the DCU and start over on HBOmax.

I’ll wait to subscribe until we get some action on the JLD series and Green Lantern Corps right off base just not a lot of titles appeal to me personally, only because I’ve watched most of the movies they are bringing quite a few times. I definitely will subscribe later on, I just wanna wait for The Overlook series and the DCU shows to hit. I imagine this will be a highly successful platform especially if they roll the DC Universe content into it over time.

Season 1 was so good! I’m so glad this is coming so soon.

So am I cancelling my DCU app or...

Season 2 can't come sooner
