Doom Patrol has been one of the best things to come out of the DC Streaming Universe, and will probably be one of the few shows to survive when the network is absorbed into HBO Max like a half-developed twin. IN fact, the new season of the show will actually premier on HBO Max on June 25th.
When we last left our heroes, they were physically shrunken and emotionally broken. Now they have to band together to take on a little girl who could destroy the world. From the way they seem to be structuring the trailer, it looks like they are hoping season 2 could be the jumping on point for people who didn’t have DCEU, or just haven’t given season one a chance. However, we strongly advise you go back and give it a watch.
DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, 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.
