“Doom Patrol” Season 2 came to an end on Thursday, but will the show return for Season 3? Fans are wondering whether the DC Universe/HBO Max show will be canceled or renewed, and unfortunately, there isn’t a clear answer yet.
There have been no announcements regarding “Doom Patrol” Season 3 yet, and ratings aren’t available to indicate what the future may hold. Since HBO Max and DC Universe don’t release numbers, the only thing to judge success by is reviews.
Critics have been overwhelmingly positive about “Doom Patrol.” Rotten Tomatoes has it at 96% with the professionals while the audience gives it a solid 82%. That makes it pretty clear that fans and critics agree that the quirky sci-fi show is worthwhile.
Is it worth renewing for another season, though? It’s hard to predict without concrete ratings, but it seems likely. Without giving away spoilers, it’s safe to say the Season 2 finale certainly didn’t wrap up any loose ends.
“Doom Patrol” Season 2 concluded Thursday with episode 9, which is not where it was intended to end. The DC Universe/HBO Max show was supposed to have 10 episodes in its second season, but the global health crisis halted filming while the finale was being made. Still, episode 9 left off with some pretty big cliffhangers, and fans will want some resolution. They’ve even taken to social media to ask for a third season.
The real question is if “Doom Patrol” Season 3 will continue to air on DC Universe. The streaming platform’s “Stargirl” aired on both DC Universe and The CW, but Season 2 will only air on The CW. “Doom Patrol” followed the same format, airing on both DC Universe and HBO Max. Could it migrate to just one platform like “Stargirl”? Audiences will have to wait and see.
All episodes of “Doom Patrol” are now available on HBO Max and DC Universe.
