I always love it when obscure comic book characters get a spotlight on television or film. A few years back who would have thought that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy could have been such a cinematic success. Over at DC, you have their weirdos that they describe as “the strangest group of heroes”, the Doom Patrol. First introduced in the first season of DC’s Titans, the Doom Patrol has now completed two seasons of mayhem. So what’s next?
This past weekend right before the beginning of day two of the DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse festivities, it was announced that HBO Max has ordered a third season of the now Max Original Doom Patrol. This seems like a no brainer as the series has been able to get a wider fanbase with their move to HBO Max from the DC Universe streaming service. In case you haven’t seen the first two seasons, they are available on HBO Max. Just a fair warning, all of these characters are emotionally wrecked.
Series executive producer Jeremy Carver said: “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.”
“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.”
Doom Patrol is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Carver, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Chris Dingess, and Geoff Johns. The cast of the series is made up of Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Joivan Wade, and Timothy Dalton.
The Doom Patrol has had some insane adventures. What makes it all work is their excellent character development. In the first season, right when they seemed to maybe come together, they discovered a secret that pulled the rug right from under them. It will be fun to see what direction this series takes. As well as what other characters from the DC Universe we get to see.
