“This world is a beautiful, horrible place. It’s spectacular.” – Rita Farr
Rita wasn’t wrong when she said this iconic line in episode 4 of season 1 and it’s more true than ever today. DC Universe has announced Doom Patrol season 2 is premiering on Thursday, June 25 with new episodes dropping every Thursday. The series will stream episodes simultaneously on both DC Universe and HBO Max platforms.
This is a series many fans have been dying for more of thanks to the stellar first season. Read Nathan Simmons’s reviews of the show to see just how good. There is no word yet on how many episodes will air, but season 1 featured 15 episodes in total.
This news comes just days before Stargirl premieres Monday on DCU and will air the next day on the CW Network.
WHAT: DC UNIVERSE today announced that the second season of its hit original series,
DOOM PATROL, is set to premiere on the digital service on Thursday, June 25.
The fan-favorite misfits of Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero – “Orange is the New Black”) Cliff Steele/Robotman (Brendan Fraser – “The Mummy”), Larry Trainer/Negative Man (Matt Bomer – “American Horror Story”) Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby – “Two and a Half Men”) and Vic Stone/Cyborg (Joivan Wade – “Doctor Who”) return in the second season of DOOM PATROL on DC UNIVERSE, with new episodes debuting every Thursday.

DC’s strangest group of heroes are back again to save the world. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk – “Harley Quinn”), the members of the Doom Patrol find themselves shrunken 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 – “Hot Fuzz”), while confronting their own personal baggage. 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 – “Broadway Kids Against Bullying: I Have a Voice”), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
DOOM PATROL is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess serving as executive producers. The series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
