The DC Universe original Doom Patrol has been renewed for a third season but will be moving from the streaming service to its new home at HBO Max, where it had a shared run during its second season. It’s just one of several scripted originals that have been moved from DC Universe, following Stargirl’s footsteps, which will be airing exclusively on The CW for its sophomore season.

“The original content that is on DCU is migrating to HBO Max,” DC’s Jim Lee told The Hollywood Reporter last month. “Truthfully, that’s the best platform for that content. The amount of content you get, not just DC, but generally from WarnerMedia, is huge, and it’s the best value proposition. We feel that is the place for that.”
Meanwhile, Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, talks about how Doom Patrol came to the streaming service with an already deep and passionate fanbase and has risen to the top as one of the most-watched Max originals on the platform. “The series sits well in our portfolio, and we are glad to greenlight a third season to continue this distinctive style of storytelling that resonates so well with critics and fans alike.”
Doom Patrol stars Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, April Bowlby, and Diane Guerrero. There’s no word yet on when fans can expect the next season, but will most likely be sometime in 2021.
