HBO MAX unveiled the first look into Doom Patrol season 3 and there’s a new villain in town, an updated Brotherhood of Dada. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season.
Prepared to be mesmerised as the trailer for the upcoming season of HBO Max’s Doom Patrol entrances us with a psychedelic sequence resembling a time warp filled with colourful collages.
“Piffle Paffle”, the narrator repeats and by the end of the one minute teaser, we’re asking the same question as the voiceover, “But what does it all mean?”
We’re told that we’re experiencing “eternal flagellation”, but honestly that is not helpful whatsoever.
All questions will be answered when Doom Patrol arrives this fall, so when exactly is the release date?
DC’s Doom Patrol will land in September
TVLine reports that the first three episodes will be premiering on September 23, with the remaining as weekly releases on Thursdays through November 11.
Season three kicks off “on the culmination of Dorothy’s (Abigail Shapiro) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss”, says HBO. “The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be. And things get a whole lot more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.”
New cast for Doom Patrol season 3
Grab your snacks because the titular superpowered freaks are back to face a group of new villains.
Negative Man/Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), Robotman/Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), Elasti-Woman/Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Cyborg/Victor Stone (Joivan Wade) and their leader/part-time mad scientist Niles Caulder/The Chief (Timothy Dalton) will go head to head will classic DC villains The Brain and Monsieur Mallah, a French talking gorilla.
HBO will also show their reimagined Brotherhood of Dada, renamed Sisterhood of Dada. Despite the gender-swap, not all members will be female.
Comprised of Malcom (Micah Joe Parker), Lloyd Jefferson/Frenzy (Miles Mussenden, Shelley Byron/The Fog (Wynn Everett), Holly McKenzie/Sleepwalk (Anita Kalathara) and Sachiko/The Quiz (Gina Hiraizumi), their kooky powers mixed with Doom Patrol’s will guarantee the most bizarre showdowns ever.
