DC Universe’s Doom Patrol is moving to HBO Max for Season 2 and ahead of next week’s premiere, we’ve got a brand new trailer that’s jam-packed with chaos, confusion, and… the seX-Men? I, like the characters in this trailer, have so many questions.
The ensemble superhero series unites some of DC Comics’ most beloved oddballs, including Brendan Fraser‘s Robotman, Matt Bomer‘s Negative Man, April Bowlby‘s Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero‘s Crazy Jane, and Jovian Wade‘s Cyborg. Season 1 quickly became the buzziest show on DC’s in-house streaming service, and now that it’s heading to HBO Max, it’s bound for its biggest audience yet. And it seems the action is bigger and more bonkers, in turn.
Per the official release, the new extended trailer offers “a first look at the wicked characters wreaking havoc including The Candlemaker, Doctor Tyme, Red Jack and The SeX-Men, making their live-action debut.” There’s also an unexpected amount of rollerskating, glitter, and disco (including a robot doing the robot, heck yeah.) The first three episodes of Doom Patrol Season 2 arrive on HBO Max Thursday, June 25, followed by a new weekly episode for the following six weeks.
Here’s the official synopsis for Doom Patrol Season 2:
DC’s strangest group of heroes — Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane aka Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) — are back again to save the world. That is, if they can find a way to grow up…both figuratively and literally. Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of the Doom Patrol now find themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton), while confronting their own personal baggage. 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 (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter, whose powers remain a mysterious but real threat to bringing on the end of the world.
