Season 2 of 'Doom Patrol' ended just an episode shy of what DC Universe had originally planned for the show. Due to coronavirus concerns, the final episode, while shot, was unable to be completed in time for Season 2's release, meaning the Doom Patrol's climactic battle with the Candlemaker is going to have to wait until Season 3. While Season 3 has not yet been confirmed, it's already got at least one episode ready to go. Stay tuned for the release date, news, casting updates and everything else you need to know about the strangest heroes in the DC Universe.

Plot

'Doom Patrol' is the story of a found family of immortal beings given strange forms and abilities by Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton) in order to find a way to live forever and keep the world safe from his daughter, Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro). In Season 2, as the Doom Patrol deal with a variety of their own problems, the 104-year-old Dorothy Spinner made her first steps towards maturity which unleashed the world-destroying Candlemaker (Lex Lang) from inside her head. The Candlemaker made short work of the Doom Patrol, turning them all into wax - and it's now up to Dorothy herself to confront the Candlemaker and save the world.
