The stunt team of DC’s Doom Patrol took to Instagram to reveal that production has finally begun on the upcoming third season of the superhero series.
The photo on Instagram shows the crew gearing up and maintaining COVID-19 safety protocols, the caption read: “Are we about to drop the most awesome socially distant album in history?! No. We tried and none of us can sing worth a shit, so I guess we’ll just go film some season 3 of @dcdoompatrol”
News of Doom Patrol season 3 renewal came in September after fans had been wondering if the series would make the cut of DC content that is being transferred from the DC Universe streaming service to HBO Max’s growing DC content library. HBO Max original content head Sara Aubrey put fans’ concerns at ease during the DC FanDome event.
“Doom Patrol came to HBO Max with an already deep and passionate fan base and has risen to the top as one of the most watched Max Originals on the platform. The series sits well in our portfolio and we are glad to greenlight a third season to continue this distinctive style of storytelling that resonates so well with critics and fans alike,” said Aubrey.
“On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return Doom Manor,” series executive producer Jeremy Carver added.”
Season 2 of Doom Patrol saw the team of misfits finally confront Candlemaker, the monstrous alter-ego of Niles Caulder’s (Timothy Dalton) daughter, Dorothy (Abigail Shapiro). With season 2 ending abruptly and the team thrashed by Candlemaker, Dorothy is left alone to finally face her own demon. Season 3 will potentially finish what season 2 started.
Doom Patrol stars Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Diane Guerrero as Jane, April Bowlby as Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman and Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg. Season 1 and 2 are now streaming on HBO Max. Season 3 is expected in 2021.
