‘Doom Patrol’ Season 2 Gets A Trailer
HBO Max has launched a trailer for ‘Doom Patrol‘ Season 2, which premieres Thursday, June 25, 2020, on the US streaming service and should (we hope!) come to STARZPLAY UK at some point later in the year.
‘Doom Patrol’ reimagines one of 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) – who 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.
‘Doom Patrol’ is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Chris Dingess serving as executive producers. The series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
In the US, the first three episodes of ‘Doom Patrol’ Season 2 premiere Thursday, June 25, 2020, then one episode will release weekly for the following six weeks on HBO Max and DC Universe simultaneously.
‘Doom Patrol‘ Season 1 can be found right now on STARZPLAY in the UK, and we would assume they will air Season 2 as well, but as yet, we don’t have a premiere date for this side of the Atlantic. We’ll let you know when we hear more.
For those of you confused as to what is STARZPLAY, it is an addition “add-on” channel you can get via Amazon Prime Video, Virgin Media, Rakuten TV and Apple TV. This is an additional service and costs £4.99 a month. Over the past few months, it has been building a solid list of high-quality shows, making it well worth the additional fee, which you can turn on and off month by month, so if you want to subscribe for a few months and binge through things, then turn it off, go for it!
