‘Doom Patrol’ is finally back with its much-awaited second edition and we could not be more excited! The superhero drama, developed by Jeremy Carver, follows the titular, dysfunctional team, who are powerful but have tragic histories. They are shunned by society and have been brought up under the protection of the Chief. In season 1, we had seen Chief getting imprisoned by the supervillain, Mr. Nobody, with Doom Patrol setting out to rescue him. However, in their quest, they discover multiple terrible secrets and the dirty backstory of their father figure, Chief.

Branded as wicked, weird, humorous, and tragic, season 2 picks up the story from season 1’s finale after our heroes defeat Mr. Nobody and rescue Niles Caulder (Chief). We will follow Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Crazy Jane, and Cyborg as they gear up, once again, to save the world. Of course, they also need to deal with their feelings of betrayal by the Chief while addressing their individual personal issues. According to the season’s official synopsis: “And as each member faces the challenge of growing beyond their own past traumatic experiences, they must come together to embrace and protect the newest member of the family: Dorothy Spinner, Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.”

Yes, we can definitely expect a power-packed new season. The mini-synopsis already has us excited! Want to know more about the upcoming outing’s release, cast, and streaming details? Read on!
