I guess DOOM PATROL is a DC Universe show no longer, because the new season will be on HBO MAX now. I mean, yikes! What does that say about the future of DC Universe? Because now two other DC Universe shows, STARGIRL and SWAMP THING, are also going elsewhere.
Sure, new episodes of STARGIRL will air on DC Universe one day before they appear on the CW. But is one day worth the price of the DC Universe streaming service, when The CW is free? And reruns of the defunct SWAMP THING series will also be on the CW. What is going here?
But for fans of The DOOM PATROL, like me, we will be able to see all new episodes of this great show on June 25th. If we have HBO MAX. And to tell the truth, I’m not sure that I do. I have regular HBO, but do I have to upgrade, or am I fine as-is? I guess I have until June 25th to figure it out. I just hope Flex Mentallo is still part of the team.
The official Doom Patrol Season 2 synopsis:
“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.”
