To survive, HBO Max needs content, but unfortunately, they’re currently under the stranglehold of a ruthless cost-cutter. Had all gone to plan, the streamer would be promoting the Thanksgiving release of Batgirl right about now. They don’t have that anymore. But they DO have Doom Patrol! The best superhero show on TV isn’t dead yet.
In addition to their amazing powers, each member of the Doom Patrol has the gift of eternal life, for one reason or another. Until now it’s been assumed to be a side effect of their individual powers — but this season’s “Immortus” plotline suggests there could be a singular force behind it…a force that not only threatens their lives now, but everyone else’s. It’s time to do what the DP has been avoiding all this time…actually making an effort to save the world! Can these misfits finally pull themselves together and work as a team when it really counts?
Doom Patrol stars Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele (Robotman), Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor (Negative Man), April Bowlby as Rita Farr (Elasti-Woman), Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane (over 100 individual people), Joivan Wade as Victor Stone (Cyborg) and Michelle Gomez as Laura de Mille (Madame Rouge).
The DP may be immortal but their contracts aren’t. Rumor has it Season 4 will be the last season, but if it is, you’ll get the chance to savor it: it will be broken up into two six-episode chunks and released one week at a time, starting December 8. The remaining chunk will be delivered sometime in 2023.
