Doom Patrol returning for a third season is a no-brainer since the wacky superhero show proved to be a hit among fans and critics. On top of that, the sophomore season of the DC Universe original series only had nine episodes instead of the originally planned ten sue to COVID-19 cutting Season 2 production short. In turn, the show’s season finale ended on a massive cliffhanger, with most of the team decapitated by the imaginary shenanigans of Candlemaker.
Deadline shared in a report that HBO Max has officially renewed Doom Patrol for a third season. Doom Patrol executive producer expressed his excitement about the renewal by sharing an official statement:
“On behalf of the wonderful cast, writers and crew, we are thrilled and grateful for the opportunity to return to Doom Manor. And we are especially thankful for our partners at Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television, DC Universe and, of course, HBO Max.”
In a separate statement, HBO Max Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey shared her enthusiasm about the future of Doom Patrol on the streaming platform:
“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.”
