'Doom Patrol' Renewed for Season 3 at HBO Max, Report

DC’s Doom Patrol has officially been greenlit for a third season, due to air in 2021, but there’s a twist to the good news.

“On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return to Doom Manor,” executive producer Jeremy Carver said in a statement. “And we are especially thankful for our partners at Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, DC Universe and, of course, HBO Max.”

Doom Patrol stars Diane Guerrero (Orange Is the New Black) as Jane, April Bowlby (Drop Dead Diva) as Rita Farr, Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Larry Trainor, Brendan Fraser (The Affair) as Cliff Steele, Timothy Dalton (Penny Dreadful) as Niles Caulder and Joivan Wade (EastEnders) as Vic Stone/Cyborg.

The show’s truncated second season — which lost an episode after shutting down due to the coronavirus pandemic — ended on a hell of a cliffhanger, with Niles’ daughter Dorothy heading bravely into her final battle against the fiendish Candlemaker, while the rest of the Patrollers remained trapped in wax.

“We knew we were facing a potential shutdown [while working on Episode 9], so we were able to do a bit of a pivot and make sure that Episode 9 would be just as satisfying of a conclusion to the season as if we had moved on to Episode 10,” executive producer Carver told TVLine in August. “There were probably a few more loose ends than there would have been if we’d gone all the way through Episode 10, but we were very happy with how we were able to structure it to give us a satisfying end to the season.”
