With a rating of 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, Jeremy Carver could not be more proud of his creation. Does the show get any better? Doom Patrol is an edge-of-the-seat show that you should all get to watch! Watch how unlikely heroes team up to protect others!
The season premiere aired on February 15th, 2019, for DC Universe exclusively. HBO Max and DC Universe simultaneously released the season 2. Will we see a DC Universe-HBO Max collaboration again for the third season? I hope not because we all aren’t ready for this. Fans have been speculating on the direction of season 3!
Doom Patrol Storyline :
Doom Patrol is in no way different from other superhero movies when it comes to getting their powers. These were guys going about their day-to-day businesses before an “accident” or accident made them superhumans. Take a moment and think of that; you walk to McDonald’s to get your fries then end up being superman. The Chief (a medical doctor) treats most of the members and houses them in his residence. He protects the members and gives them a name from an earlier team he formed.
Season 1 and 2 Recap :
The run to the much-awaited team-up between the heroes comes to a halt one their protector and guardian goes missing. It is later revealed that the Chief has been capture by Mr. Nobody. The name in itself, Mr. Nobody, symbolizes his incomplete form; he has no full-face nor body. Although these heroes team up, they are rocked by revelations that threaten their will to save Chief. They later realize that their powers were neither a coincidence nor an accident. The team realizes that the Chief is responsible for the catastrophic circumstances that gave them powers. These were people who felt chosen or lucky to be gifted little did they know they were all part of a plan – Chief’s plan. This was no accident but an “accident.”
The second season is all about the team trying to protect the Chief’s potent daughter (Dorothy). The team tries to prolong the Chief’s life after rescuing Dorothy. The whole idea is to keep the Chief alive long enough for him to care for Dorothy. If the Chief succumbed before Dorothy, the team would have to protect his daughter.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Predictions :
Doom Patrol keeps on bringing the heat season after season. It would break the hearts of many if season 3 was not renewed. The wait itself is brutal. However, the outbreak of coronavirus meant that the production had to stop. The production team had to downscale for why risk it, yet there is life after the COVID. The filming of season 2 was affected; thus, the ending was incomplete. Season 2 ended with The Candlemaker largely indisposing the team and Dorothy facing an enemy he cannot see – An invincible man. This is the perfect epitome of the fear of the unseen. Where doe this leave season 3? Well, season 2 has to be complete before we can have the discussion around season 3. However, there is a thrill of anticipation.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Renewed :
From being at the edge of our seats for 2 seasons to waiting with our hearts in our mouths; the series is yet to get an official season 3 renewal notice. However, we should calm our horses, since this is a when and not an if thing. Doom Patrol is among the most popular DC Universe offerings. It took only two months for the series to be renewed for season two following the season one finale! It is hard to believe that the series is at risk of cancellation.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Release Date : When will it be aired?
The COVID pandemic boasts of making our life uncertain. Similarly, the release date remains uncertain. But Hey! There is continuing to be a season 3 once normalcy returns.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Platform :
Since the beginning, DC Universe has been encountering several difficulties. With the season 2 premiering on both HBO Max and DC Universe simultaneously, HBO Max could take over the show. However, it all depends on if it will be renewed for a third season.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Cast :
We are doubtful going to see a change in the cast! The main cast is likely to return: April Bowlby the star of Two and a Half men as Rita Farr, Brendan Fraser of the Mummy Triology as Cliff Steele, Diane Guerrero from the popular Netflix series Orange as Jane, Joivan Wade nominee for Rising Star at Screen Nation Film and Television Awards as Cyborg/Vic Stone, Matt Bomer winner of Supporting Act at the Golden Globe Awards in 2015 as Larry Trainor, and Timothy Dalton famous for playing Bond as Niles Caulder. Season 2’s early ending puts Dorothy’s storyline in jeopardy. Samantha Ware (Miranda) and Abigail Shapiro could potentially return for season 3. Since Mr Nobody (Alan Tudyk) is still alive, he could return for a prospective season 3.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Trailer :
The uncertainty that riddles the production of season 3 continues to impede the efforts to release a trailer. Also, since the show has not yet been renewed for season 3, there can possibly be no trailer but only predictions. However, you can watch season 2 as we wait for the third season! What a better way to gear up for season 3 than reviewing the past seasons for clues.
