Production on the second season of Doom Patrol could be starting soon.
According to DC insider Lance Ausfresser, the sophomore season of the live action DC Universe web series could begin production this November.
Ausfresser also claims that the second season’s episode count will be reduced to ten, which would be five episodes less than the show’s freshman season. That has not been confirmed though and it is possible that the later episodes could be revealed later on. A similar instance occurred with the first season of DC Universe’s Titans.
Warner Bros. Television expediting production on another season of a show is not unheard of. Production on Titans season two took place just two months after season one’s finale, which made it possible for it to premiere in the fall. A similar plan could be in the works for the show starring DC’s favorite misfit heroes.
It was previously announced at San Diego Comic Con 2019 that all 15 episodes of Doom Patrol‘s first season would be available on WarnerMedia’s HBO Max streaming service when it launches early next year. It will still also be available on the DC Universe streaming service, where season two is set to premiere at an unspecified date.
Doom Patrol‘s first season was met with a positive reception from critics and fans alike. It currently holds a 95% on review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes.
Created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani, DC Comics’ Doom Patrol first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 in 1963. Typically referred to as the “World’s Strangest Heroes” the original roster for the team consists of The Chief, Elasti-Girl, Robotman, and Negative Man. Since then, DC has published six Doom Patrol comic books with the most recent currently being written by My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way.
Doom Patrol stars 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.
Season one of Doom Patrol is currently available on the DC Universe streaming service.
