DC’s resident team of misfits aren’t going anywhere. According to insider Lance Ausfresser in the Doom Patrol Facebook group, the second season of the fan-favorite DC Universe series will begin production before the end of the year. Ausfresser also claims that season two will consist of ten episodes, five less than its debut season.
The first season of Doom Patrol has only two episodes remaining, with the aptly titled “Penultimate Patrol” releasing today. This week’s episode will see the team attempt to save The Chief from the evil clutches of Alan Tudyk’s Mr. Nobody with the help of Flex Mettallo, who escaped from the Bureau of Normalcy after decades of being held captive.
Created by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney, and Bruno Premiani, DC Comics’ Doom Patrol first appeared in My Greatest Adventure #80 in 1963. Dubbed the “World’s Strangest Heroes,” the original team consisted of The Cheif, Robotman, Elasti-Girl, and Negative Man. Since then, there have been six Doom Patrol series, with Robotman being the only member to appear in them all.
