HBO Max Unveils Premiere Date and Synopsis for Doom Patrol Season 2
The second season of the hit DC Universe original series Doom Patrol has finally a premiere date. Starting June 25, the sophomore season of the show will debut on HBO Max. The new streaming service by HBO will officially kick off things on May 27 at the monthly price of $14.99. Subscribers will be also able to stream the first season of Doom Patrol, which HBO has imported from DC Universe.
Doom Patrol Season 2 is among the bunch of original comics-based series that will air on HBO Max. The streaming service is planning to produce also a Justice League Dark, a Green Lantern inspired series, an Aquaman animated miniseries, and a series based on the Vertigo comic book series DMZ by Brian Wood and Riccardo Burchielli,
The official synopsis of Doom Patrol Season 2 reads:
“DC’s strangest group of heroes — 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) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track.
Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.”
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. The series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani.
Doom Patrol Season 2 will be available to stream on both DC Universe and HBO Max later this year.
