'Doom Patrol' season 2: Release date, plot, cast, and everything you need to know about the superpowered misfits show
At San Diego Comic-Con 2019, 'Doom Patrol' gave its audiences a marvelous surprise as the DC show announced that it was officially set to get a second season.
Created by Jeremy Carver, who serves as the executive producer of the show, 'Doom Patrol' follows a group of rag-tag superpowered misfits who are tasked with saving the world from interdimensional donkeys, giant floating eyeball gods, and Mr. Nobody.
Season 2 of ‘Doom Patrol’ will arrive on June 25.
The show follows the lives of Kay Challis/Crazy Jane (Guerrero), a Doom Patrol member with 64 distinct personalities each displaying a different super power, Cliff Steele/Robotman (Fraser), a former NASCAR racer whose brain was transplanted into a robotic body after an accident destroyed his own, Rita Farr\ Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), a former actress who developed the power to stretch, shrink and grow after being exposed to a toxic liquid, Larry Trainor/Negative Man (Bomer/Matthew Zuk), a former pilot who crashed into negative energy and is now wrapped in bandages from head to toe, Victor Stone/Cyborg (Jovian Wade), a half-human, half-machine superhero struggling with his duality, and their mentor Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief (Dalton), leader of the Doom Patrol. The Chief is a leading doctor in medical science who specializes in finding those who are "on the edge of death in need of a miracle". The fourth-wall-breaking super-villain is Mr. Nobody (Tudyk) lives in the shadows and is able to drain the sanity of others after being experimented on by ex-Nazis.
In Season 2, following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol will find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they will begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by The Chief while confronting their own personal baggage. Each member will face the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences. But they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
The cast includes April Bowlby, Joivan Wade, Timothy Dalton, Alan Tudyk, Brendan Fraser, Diane Guerrero, and Matt Bomer.
