HBO Max's Doom Patrol Gets Season 4 Renewal, New Clip

During DC FanDome, the weird weird weird show gets an awesome new Season 3 clip.


HBO Max has announced that Doom Patrol, the series based on the DC Comics superhero team of the same name, has been renewed for Season 4. Season 3 debuted on the streaming service on September 23--so not even a full month later, it's a huge vote of confidence.

The announcement is part of the festivities and wall-to-wall announcements during DC FanDome--the comics giant's free, global virtual fan event. While Season 4 is still going to be a while away, what's immediately more exciting is that DC FanDome also offered a new Season 3 mid-season trailer, which you can check out below.

The clip ably demonstrates that the series is going to only get weirder and weirder as the series progresses. It's best to watch for yourself--maybe the best thing to spoil is that, hey, if you like torso-less butts with fangs, this will be your jam. The series official logline: "Doom Patrol reimagines one of DC's most beloved groups of superheroes who all suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured… [Doom Patrol] fights for a world that wants nothing to do with them."

Season 3 stars Brendan Fraser, Matt Bomer, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Joivan Wade, Timothy Dalton, Skye Roberts, and Michelle Gomez. There's no word yet on when production will get underway on Season 4, but late 2022 seems likely as Season 3 was announced in September of last year.
