‘Doom Patrol’ Renewed for Season 3 and Moving Exclusively to HBO Max


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.

Megan has been passionate about writing since she was little and has been passionate about all things pop culture and nerdy since almost as long. Joining Nerds and Beyond in 2019, she also graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Journalism. Megan is constantly binge-watching shows and finding new things to obsess over. 9-1-1 and Marvel currently reign as the top obsessions. You can find her on Twitter @marvels911s if you ever want to discuss some certain firefighters.
