Doom Patrol : These superheroes put the ‘we’ in ‘weird’!
The series follows a superhero team called ‘Doom Patrol’, the members of which have all gained their mystical powers through tragic events in their lives and are now social outcasts. Niles Caulder / The Chief (Timothy Dalton) treats most of the team’s members and gives them all stay in his mansion. The team comprises of Rita Farr (April Bowlby), an ex-Hollywood actress, Jane (Diane Guerrero), the dominant identity of a woman named Kay Challis who has 64 distinct identities which emerged as a result of a childhood trauma, Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), a cyborg and former race car driver, Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), a former Air Force pilot who met with a plane crash and was disfigured in the same and is now covered in bandages from head to toe to prevent the emission of radioactive rays, and Victor “Vic” Stone / Cyborg (Joivan Wade) whose father gave him robotic enhancements after an accident that killed his mother.
The ensemble cast of the series has made it one of the most promising superhero series and has given it a loyal fanbase. The show’s visual and graphic effects have also been talked about a lot which only goes to show the big budget that Doom Patrol has. The show was initially developed for the DC Universe streaming service but in 2020, when the show was renewed for season 3, it was announced that the show was being moved exclusively to HBO Max.
Doom Patrol season 3 : What can be expected?
With season 3, Doom Patrol will have a new home in HBO Max. The main reason behind airing the show solely on HBO Max is that DC Universe was having difficulty with continuing with the show due to budget demands. The executives have also revealed that having the show on HBO Max would ensure a wider audience which will be beneficial for ratings.
The show earned a spot on The Verge’s list of the best shows of 2020 with its second instalment, and it is only obvious that fans are extremely excited about the upcoming season. At the end of season 2, Mr. Nobody was still alive which is why it is being assumed that he will make his return in season 3. The new season will address whether Niles is actually dead as well as Jane’s fate in the Underground. The foundation for season 3 is set with all the storylines that were left incomplete at the end of previous season.
These new characters that will wreak havoc in the upcoming season
As per insider Daniel Richtman, the Dead Boy Detectives will be introduced in season 3. Created by Neil Gaiman and Matt Wagner, the characters are the ghosts of two children – Charles Rowland and Edwin Paine. It is also being said that the Brotherhood Of Dada will also reportedly appear in the upcoming season. The Brotherhood of Dada is one of the most critical villains of Doom Patrol which is why it may be featured as the main antagonist in season 3. The good news for fans is that the shooting for season 3 has begun and we can expect to watch the new season very soon.
