The fifteen-episode first season of Doom Patrol is one of the best comic book TV series out there but it’s been far too quiet when it comes to a second season renewal made worse by the uncertainty of the DC Universe service as parent company WarnerMedia rolls out their HBO Max streaming service. The DC Universe panel tonight revealed that the show is getting a second season and it will be streaming on both services – and that the first season will show up on the HBO Max service at launch.
“In only its first season, the critically acclaimed series has received a 95% certified fresh rating and scored an 8 out of 10 on RottenTomatoes.com — and continues to gain momentum,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHEG Senior Vice President, TV Marketing recently.
Take a little time, settle in for a little weird, realize that this is the tip of the iceberg in what weird will come.
The cast includes Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder, Jake Michaels as Robotman, Dwain Murphy as Negative Man, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Lane, Brendan Fraser as Robotman, and April Bowlby is playing Elasti-Girl. Alan Tudyk is playing the first season villain of Mr. Nobody.
Plot Concept: 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.
