The beloved DC Universe original, Doom Patrol, is on its way back to screens near us, as HBO Max and DC announce a season 2 premiere date. Although it won’t be part of the streamer’s launch slate, subscribers won’t have to wait too long. The first episode hits HBO Max on June 25, with subsequent new episodes airing on every follows Thursday.
PR is also explicit in mentioning that episodes will air simultaneously on DC Universe, in spite of fan anxiety that it was being pulled from the platform after the official Doom Patrol Twitter only listed HBO Max in its announcement.

Below, check out the official Doom Patrol season 2 description, as well a promo image.
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. With episodes debuting simultaneously on DC UNIVERSE, the series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
