Here comes the DOOM! HBO Max has revealed the Premiere Date for the 2nd Season of DC’s “Doom Patrol”! @dcdoompatrol will arrive on HBO Max on 6/25!
The second season of Doom Patrol, formerly a DC Universe exclusive, will debut on HBO Max and DCU this summer, the services’ parent company WarnerMedia announced today.
In Season 2, DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (voiced and sometimes played by 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,” reads the official synopsis.
Despite news of the second season being shared on HBO Max and DC Universe, I think we can all expect the latter app to either disappear or fully merge into the HBO Max streaming service. DC Universe was an ambitious venture and a delight for comic book fans but it never really had the amount of content or direction needed to really turn into something other than a streaming service for a niche audience.
