HBO Max has released the trailer for season three of the Max Original DOOM PATROL. The first three episodes of season three will debut THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, with subsequent episodes launching weekly every Thursday through November 11 on HBO Max.
HBO is highly geo-blocked, meaning you can’t access it from outside the US unless you use a good VPN service. However Doom Patrol can be streamed on Starzplay a premium service on Amazon Prime which cost an additional £4.99 a month.
I’ll be taking a look at what else is available on Starzplay to see if there is enough other content to justify yet another subscription.
DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of superheroes: “Robotman” aka Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), “Negative Man” aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), “Elasti-Woman” aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby) and “Crazy Jane” (Diane Guerrero), all led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder aka “The Chief” (Timothy Dalton).
Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. Season three opens on the culmination of Dorothy’s (Abi Monterey) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss. The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be. And things get a whole lot more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.
