Doom Patrol Season 4: What Are the Speculations We Have About the Plot?
DC’s “Doom Patrol” started after the team was first shown in the fourth episode of Season 1 of “Titans.” “Titans” was a gritty and dark take on the famous young team of heroes and former sidekicks in the DC Universe who wanted to go out on their own to protect the innocent.
Some of the characters in “Titans,” like Robin, are well-known, but “Doom Patrol” has some characters that casual DC fans might not know. Fans watched Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Cyborg (Joivan Wade), and Robotman (Brendan Fraiser), along with the rest of the Doom Patrol team, take on the Brotherhood of Evil and finally accept their roles as heroes. The show’s third season ended in early November.
During Seasons 1 and 2, fans saw each member of the team struggle with their demons and past traumas that led to their unique abilities. It was also revealed that the team members didn’t just get their abilities by chance, but that The Chief/Doctor Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton) planned for everything to happen to them.
In Season 2, everyone had to find The Chief again so that they could save one of their own. Season 3 ended on a pretty good note, so what kind of challenges will Season 4 bring, now that the team is getting along better? Here is what we know about Season 4 of “Doom Patrol.”
What is the Date That Season 4 of Doom Patrol Will Come Out?
Variety and the 2021 DC FanDome Event on October 16, 2021, where the cast of “Doom Patrol” decided to quickly drop in to let fans know that they had been officially renewed for a fourth season, both say that the show is likely to start sometime in 2022.
“Doom Patrol” and “Titans” are usually released in the summer and fall. Even though there has been no official confirmation of a release date, it seems likely that “Doom Patrol” will come out on HBO Max in the summer or fall of 2022. “Titans” has also been picked up for a fourth season, which will air sometime in 2022. (via Variety).
“Titans” and “Doom Patrol” are just two of the many original shows that DC has on HBO Max. The streamer is also making a “Batgirl” movie with Leslie Grace and a “Peacemaker” series with “Suicide Squad” star John Cena.
Who is in the Cast of Season 4 of Doom Patrol?
So far, the official cast list for Season 4 of “Doom Patrol” has not been made public. But there haven’t been any rumors that prominent cast members are leaving. So, if the same cast from Season 3 is set to come back, fans can expect to see Brendan Fraiser, Matt Bomer, Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby, Joivan Wade, Skye Roberts, and Michelle Gomez as their characters in Season 4.
The fact that the “Doom Patrol” team feels more united and heroic than ever at the end of Season 3 makes it likely that the whole cast will return. But it’s unclear if Timothy Dalton will return because his character seemed to die for good in Season 3.
As of right now, there have been no rumors about new characters or cast members for Season 4. As the new year starts, more information will likely be made public. Since the Doom Patrol will have to deal with new threats, it’s expected that there will be new bad guys.
What Can We Expect From Doom Patrol Season 4?
There is no official information about what will happen in Season 4. Dorothy (Abi Monterey), one of the Dead Boy Detectives, may come back to the show. Even though it hasn’t been confirmed yet, it seems unlikely that the team would accept their new super-team status because of how Season 3’s finale ended.
Season 4 of “Doom Patrol” will be done in the next year. Season 4 will have to deal with Robotman’s new body and Rita’s possible bad behavior now that she has accepted her darker side. It will also have to deal with several unresolved issues from Season 3.
No matter what happens in Season 4, the “Doom Patrol” crew will have to deal with their new responsibilities as a super-team and figure out the best way to work together.
