Straight out of the DC Universe panel at the San Diego Comic-Con comes the news that the superhero series Doom Patrol has been renewed for a second season.
The second season will premiere sometime in early 2020. The first season aired on the DC Universe app, but the second season will change as it will air on both the app and HBO MAX, the new streaming service coming from HBO next year. The first season of Doom Patrol will arrive on Blu-ray in October.
DOOM PATROL is a re-imagining of one of DC’s most beloved groups of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol’s members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities — but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence — and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of TITANS, DOOM PATROL will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.
Doom Patrol stars April Bowlby, Matt Bomer, Brenden Fraser, Diane Guerrero, Timothy Dalton and Alan Tudyk.
