DC Universe’s Doom Patrol joins the HBO Max family in season two on Thursday, June 25, and with it comes the strangest group of heroes perhaps the world has ever seen.
In the show’s second season, Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — have returned to save the world. But first, they must find a way to grow up.
Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk), the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and awkwardly stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. With nowhere else to go, they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage.
As each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own traumatic experiences, they realize they have to come together to protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat.
Doom Patrol is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess serving as executive producers. With episodes debuting simultaneously on DC Universe, the series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani. The show will air concurrently on both HBO Max and DC Universe with the first three episodes dropping June 25 and then an episode dropping weekly after that.
