DC’s group of doomed souls have not gone on their final wild adventure as of yet. DOOM PATROL has been renewed for a third season at HBO MAX.
“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.
The superhero series debuted on the DC Universe streaming platform for its inaugural season. Its sophomore season streamed on both the DC Universe and HBO MAX. Now it seems as if the superhero show is going to fully be an HBO MAX series going forward.
“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 stars Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor aka Negative Man, Diane Guerrero as Jane aka Crazy Jane, April Bowlby as Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman and Joivan Wade as Victor Stone aka Cyborg.
This is news that many people were waiting to hear about. Especially since it was announced the DOOM PATROL would be making its move from the DC Universe streaming app over to the HBO Max streaming platform. But the announcement that was made may add some more excitement.
The sophomore season of DOOM PATROL which originally was a DC Universe exclusive, will debut on HBO Max and DCU on June 25 simultaneously, as announced by WarnerMedia on Wednesday.
Back in January at the Television Critics Association, HBO Max content chief Kevin Reilly said regarding HBO Max and DCU: “We have to figure out those two subscriptions and we haven’t worked out the mechanics of what that’s going to look like.” This is because it was initially believed by many that the DC Universe service would be absorbed into HBO Max.
It seems the mechanics have been worked out regarding “Doom Patrol,” a A crew member who has worked on multiple DC Universe shows told Business Insider that HBO Max had been heavily involved in season two.
Season one of DOOM PATROL on the DC Universe took the world by storm. With interesting characters, adult humor and so much more, when the season ended people have been chomping at the bit for the second season. This is especially since TITANS has already aired its 2nd season and currently filming its third.
Now there is some exciting casting news coming out about the team of doomed souls (Abigail Shapiro will play Dorothy Spinner) and this announcement has a major connection to one of the not so likely heroes.
Karen Obilom (GAMES PEOPLE PLAY) has landed a recurring role as Roni Evers according to DEADLINE. Evers is reportedly “a military veteran with a mysterious past who Vic Stone/Cyborg (Wade) meets while attending a PTSD support group.”
It seems that the two characters may start off bonding over their traumatic experiences, and it will eventually go wrong. Obilom appears to be playing a gender-bent version of Ronald Evers, a character that eventually becomes one of Cyborg’s foes and a cyborg himself.
DOOM PATROL season 2 does not currently have a premiere date, but Diane Guerrero, Brendan Frasier, Jovian Wade, Timothy Dalton, April Bowlby, and Matt Bomer have been confirmed to return.
