DC’s strangest group of heroes will be back to save the world again when the Emmy nominated series Doom Patrol returns for its third season. The first three episodes of Doom Patrol Season 3 will debut same time as the U.S. exclusively on HBO GO from Thursday, 23 September 2021 while each subsequent episode premieres every Thursday.
Doom Patrol reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of Super-Heroes: Robotman aka Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Cyborg aka Victor Stone (Joivan Wade), all led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton).
Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities but also left them scarred and disfigured. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
The synopsis for Doom Patrol Season 3 reads:
Season three opens on the culmination of Dorothy’s (Abi Monterey) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss.
The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be.
And things get a whole lot more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.
The first two seasons of Doom Patrol by streaming or downloading all episodes on HBO GO.
Doom Patrol is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Chris Dingess and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson serving as executive producers. The series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
What’s interesting for fans of DC Comics is that this season will finally introduce the Brotherhood Of Evil, which is one of the main arch-nemesis of Doom Patrol and the Teen Titans. Perhaps we’ll see a crossover between Titans and Doom Patrol in the near future? Fingers crossed.
In the comics, the Brotherhood Of Evil was founded by the Brain and his partner, the talking French gorilla with a machine gun named Monsieur Mallah. They consisted of many other villains as well, including Madame Rouge. This will be their live-action debut, but they’ve appeared in animation before; most notably in the 2003 Teen Titans animated series.
