The synopses for the first two episodes of the DC Universe exclusive series Doom Patrol has been released.
The plot synopsis for the first episode in the series’ inaugural season suggest the arrival of founding Teen Titans member, Cyborg.
Since the launch of the DC Universe streaming platform late last year, DC has made an effort to produce as much content on the service as possible. Following the success of Titans and Young Justice Outsiders, there’s no question that they’re charging full-steam ahead with the premiere of Doom Patrol.
In the series premiere episode, the team – tired of being stuck in Doom Manor – decides to visit the local town while The Chief is away. However, this seemingly harmless field trip leads to some grave consequences, including an encounter with the mysterious and powerful Mr. Nobody (series star ALAN TUDYK).
Following Mr. Nobody’s capture of Niles Caulder and the destruction of Cloverton Ohio, The Doom Patrol investigate the mysterious albino donkey and discover it is a door to another universe, one where Mr. Nobody is in control. Cyborg aka Vic Stone (series star JOIVAN WADE), a part man/part machine hero from Detroit who has his own complicated relationship with Niles Caulder, joins the search.
Based on these synopses, Cyborg is definitely going to be a huge draw for fans who want to get excited for the series. If the series performs similarly to Titans and the Doom Patrol-centric episode of that series, then fans are certainly in for a treat.
Doom Patrol is one of six exclusive shows that are being developed for the DC Universe digital streaming platform. The others are Swamp Thing, Stargirl. Young Justice Outsiders, Harley Quinn, and Titans. The series is being helmed by Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver, Arrowverse veterans Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.
Doom Patrol stars Matt Bomer, Timothy Dalton, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Jovian Wade, Brendan Fraser, and Alan Tudyk. The series will premiere on the DC Universe streaming service on February 15, 2019.
