HBO Max was released onto digital platforms yesterday and if you’re like me, then you’re probably wondering “When will Doom Patrol season 2 be available to watch?”
Earlier this morning Entertainment Weekly dropped some information on the show’s sophomore season. With it came a couple of new images and a first look at one of the newest characters to be joining DC’s band of strange misfits, Dorothy Spinner. Created by Paul Kupperburg, Dorothy Spinner has the power to bring imaginary like beings to life. She had a very prominent role in the Grant Morrinson run of DC/Vertigo Comics. Making her way into to live action, she’ll be played by Abigail Shaprio.
We’ll also be seeing the return of Mark Sheppard’s Willloghby Kipling. He’ll be making an appearance in the season 2 premiere. Showrunner Jeremy Caver describes him as “an occult detective with wry British humor, Kipling makes John Constantine look well-adjusted by comparison.”
When season 1 ended, we find the team shrunk down to the size of Ant-Man except for Matt Bomer’s Negative Man and they are introduced to The Chief’s daughter Dorothy Spinner. Not much else is known what will happen next but I for one am beyond excited to see what unfolds!
The second season of Doom Patrol will not only be on HBO Max, but it will be simultaneously playing on DC Universe. Other HBO Max originals that are in the works for the service like J.J. Abrams’ Justice League Dark, Green Lantern, Strange Adventures, and a Friends reunion.
EW also released two different Doom Patrol posters which you can see below:
Read the official synopsis for Doom Patrol season 2:
“DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.”
Produced by Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, Doom Patrol stars Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Alan Tudyk, Matt Bomer, Brendan Fraser, Timothy Dalton, and Joivan Wade.
