Release Date

The first three episodes of 'Doom Patrol' Season 3 will premiere on September 23, 2021, with subsequent episodes to air weekly every Thursday. 

How to watch

Season 3 will premiere exclusively on HBO Max. A paid subscription is required to access content, but if you sign up for the special Hulu bundle, you'll get a free, 7-day trial of HBO Max.

Plot

A re-imagining of one of DC's most beloved groups of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl, and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr Niles Caulder (The Chief). 'The Doom Patrol's' members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities - but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence - and to protect Earth from what they find. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the 'Doom Patrol' is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Picking up after the events of Titans, 'Doom Patrol' will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.



 

Spoilers

In the Season 2 finale, we see that Dorothy’s confrontation with the Candlemaker leads to a devastating loss. The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face themselves and their futures. Jane’s fate is left up in the air as she is trapped in the Underground. We also know Niles Caulder is dying, and whether he accepts this fate or continues seeking immortality will likely play a big part in Season 3. And things get a lot more complicated when Madame Rouge arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, which she has no memory of.
