Doom Patrol Season 3 Release Date: Oh, Yeah, I Know It
Open up my Google calendar and you’ll see several entries for next month, including my birthday. But there’s one notation that’s almost more important than the celebration of me. (Almost–let’s not be silly.) It is–and drumroll, please–the Doom Patrol season 3 release date. You know, Doom Patrol, the show of which I have definitely seen more than one episode.
What We Know About Season 3
Man, so much. Like, at least as much as I know about season 2, which I obviously watched. Just in case you didn’t, though, our own Joshua watched them all with his very own eyeballs. You can catch up with his thoughts–so many, so doomy–here by starting with his Doom Patrol season 2 premiere review.

But if you did watch season 2 and are just hoping for hints on season 3, here’s what we know so far. First of all, goddess Michelle Gomez will be joining the show as Madame Rouge. As for what she’ll be up to, along with the primary cast, the details are in the press release:
“Season Three opens on the culmination of Dorothy’s (Abi Monterey) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss. The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be. And things get a whole lot more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.”
Doom Patrol Season 3 Release Date Revealed in Teaser Trailer
Although we’ve known some details, there’s been one glaring absence in what we know. Specifically, when we’re all going to get to feast our own eyes on the glory that is Doom Patrol. I know my fellow Doomingtons know how it is.
Anyway, with a teaser trailer that HBO Max and DC each presented on their respective channels, we now know the actual date. Doom Patrol will be hitting the streamwaves on September 23. Remember, though, that while the show is still a DC story, it is now airing exclusively on HBO Max. And I, for one, could not be more excited. If you want to feel the rush that comes with being a practicing Doomist, then check out the teaser below.
