Doom Patrol has been renewed for season 3 by HBO Max. The news comes from this afternoon's DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse event, part two of their original FanDome event from August. An official statement reads: "DC's strangest group of heroes will be back to save the world again as HBO Max exclusively greenlights Max Original Doom Patrol for Season 3." There was no mention of DC Universe during the panel as the original home of the fan-favorite series.
Sara Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max says, "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." Aubrey goes on to share her enthusiasm for season 3. "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." The series originally premiered in 2019, exclusively to DC Universe.
Doom Patrol executive producer Jeremy Carver is also excited to be coming back for a third season. He says, "On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return Doom Manor... And we are especially thankful for our partners at Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, DC Universe and, of course, HBO Max." Carver previously had this to say about season 3 before it was officially announced.
"I would say that the Underground is in a state of crisis. You have the revelation that the person playing Miranda is actually not Miranda. We have some indication of who it is, but it's not the entire story. And Jane herself is in the well, discovering these truths while still being underwater. State of crisis is an accurate way of describing Jane, the other personas and the underground... I'll say that you'll get a better understanding of who that identity is as we move into a new season, should we be lucky enough to get a new season."
Doom Patrol follows some very unlikely heroes who all received their powers through tragic circumstances. They are also generally shunned by society. Most members of the team were treated by the Chief, a doctor who gave them shelter in his mansion to help protect them from the aforementioned society that shuns them. Their name originates from an earlier Doom Patrol team that was formed by the Chief.
The Doom Patrol team includes Cliff Steele/Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor/Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Jane/Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), and Victor Stone/Cyborg (Joivan Wade). From here on out, the show will be exclusively on HBO Max. As for when season 3 will debut, that is unclear at this time, though we should get some news in the coming months. The Doom Patrol season 3 news was announced during the DC FanDome Doom Patrol panel.
