A second season for the DC Universe original series Doom Patrol is in the works and set to start filming in 2019. FandomWire has learned this via our very own DC correspondent Lance Ausfresser, who has been the host of dozens of DC television show groups on social media.
Inside sources have reported that the DC Universe exclusive series has been reportedly greenlit for a second season, but it is presently unannounced by DC Entertainment or Warner Bros. Television. It is likely that fans could receive an announcement shortly before the show premieres on the DC Universe streaming service on February 15th. This would be similar to the announcement at New York City Comic Con that Titans was already greenlit for a second season before its first season premiered. The sources have also reported that Doom Patrol‘s second season could possibly begin filming at an unspecified date during the summer. In general, it is not unusual for this to happen for networks or streaming services to greenlight shows before they even premiere their first seasons.

Doom Patrol is one of six original shows that have been produced for the DC Universe streaming service. The other original shows include Young Justice Outsider, Titans, Swamp Thing, Stargirl, and Harley Quinn. It is set to premiere on the DC Universe streaming service on February 15th.
Doom Patrol is a reimagining of one of DC’s strangest group of outcast Super Heroes which includes: Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg and Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief. Here’s the synopsis:
“Doom Patrol will find the reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.”
