Doom Patrol, the DC Universe show we all love and watch regularly, is coming back for a second season. (As we all know.) But do you know when the Doom Patrol season 2 premiere date is? Of course you do. We’ll say it at the same time just to make sure.
But First, What Is A Doom Patrol?
Just in case you’re not down with we Doomers (Doomies?), here’s what you need to know. Much like the show The Boys, Doom Patrol gives us a look at folks with superhero powers who ain’t exactly lovin’ it. Being special hasn’t brought them fame, fortune, or admiration; instead, it’s left them alienated, because they all gained powers through trauma.
So these not-so-super folks–Jane (Orange is the New Black‘s Diane Guerrero), Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), and Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser)–hole up with The Chief (Timothy Dalton of being Timothy Dalton fame), Dr. Niles Caulder. Not only does he allow them to live in his unsuspicious mansion, but he also treats their ailments. They repay his kindness in season 1 by rescuing him from supervillain Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk). However, they also learn things about Caulder and his culpability in their situations in the process. And they’re tiny now.
Season 2 will find them dealing with all that, while also getting to know Caulder’s daughter, Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro).
Okay, Sure, So When’s the Doom Patrol Season 2 Premiere Date?
Wow, you and the questions. Season 2 will premiere on DC Universe and the upcoming streaming service HBO Max on Thursday, June 25. The whole season won’t be dropping then, though. You’ll have to tune back in each Thursday for subsequent episodes. And if you’re a DC Universe subscriber like Joshua, then you can watch Doom Patrol without commercials and also download it in glorious 4K Ultra HD. Luxury!
Then, argue for hours about the finer points of the show’s plot points in DC’s dedicated fan community. Is this the future or what?
Doom Patrol season 1 is currently available in full on DC Universe. Are you watching it, as I did, devotedly? Let us fans talk about it here in these comments or on social media, where I’m always tweeting about Dooming or whatever.
