DC FANDOME 2: Doom Patrol renewed for third season, moves exclusively to HBO Max

September 13th, 2020 by Marc Comments


So, DC Fandome had it’s second weekend this weekend (you can find all our coverage of this weekend and the first one here) and the first big bit of news is that your favourite bunch of misfit heroes, Doom Patrol are coming back for a third outing!


Warner Bros TV released the teaser below and said: “DC’s strangest group of heroes will be back to save the world again as HBO Max exclusively greenlights Max Original Doom Patrol for Season 3.”

It seems this is another nail in the coffin for the DC-only streaming service DC Universe, but it’s good news for the shows themselves as HBO Max is proving a pretty big deal and is certainly dedicated to DC content.

This is a similar deal as the Stargirl series from DC Universe heading to The CW’s Arrowverse as of season 2.

Of course, this is bad news for those subscribed to DC Universe, but it’s great to see the shows aren’t just being canned and will live on.

Doom Patrol returns for Season 3 in 2021.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
