The Doom Patrol, whose 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.
As part of this weekend's DC Fandome virtual convention, it was announced that Doom Patrol has been renewed for a third season on HBO Max. The good news comes the month after the superhero drama wrapped its sophomore run.
The series will be making HBO Max its exclusive home starting with Season 3. It originally launched on the DC Universe subscription service in early 2019 but was only solely there for one season. Season 2 ended up airing across both platforms.
Based on DC Comics characters, Doom Patrol follows a team of outcast heroes led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief. The group of freaks with superpowers includes Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, and Crazy Jane. Each of them previously suffered a terrible accident that not only left them scarred for life, but also with superhuman abilities.
Look for Season 3 of Doom Patrol in 2021.
