(New Season of Doom Patrol starts June 25)

HBO Max’s poster art for season two of the fan-favorite, critically acclaimed DC UNIVERSE series Doom Patrol has been revealed. Doom Patrol season one is currently available to stream in its entirety on HBO Max and DC UNIVERSE.

Doom Patrol Season Two features DC’s strangest group of lovable 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.

Earlier this year, HBO Max Content Chief Kevin Reilly explained that WarnerMedia were still attempting to figure out how subscriptions between HBO Max and DC Universe would work.

Both are owned by the same company, and there’s concern that consumers will be paying for the same thing twice, especially after the announcement that Doom Patrol will stream on both.

Business Insider recently asked Reilly what that means for HBO Max and whether we can expect all the DCU shows (Titans, Harley Quinn, Young Justice) to transition over to the new streaming platform as time passes.

“There have been extensive discussions around DCU because DC is such a valuable entity to us and the depth of fandom is so important. So we really want to figure out how we walk this line for fans where we have a deep fan engagement, which is why DCU was designed, and a broader fan engagement,” Reilly told the outlet.

“That is evolving but there were high-end series that DCU produced that felt like, budgetarily, we could handle from a business model better, and bring along and service that swath of fans,” he continued. Doom Patrol was a show we identified that had deep love for it and tucked right into our portfolio.”

An HBO Max representative later reached out to the site to clarify that there are “no current plans for any other DCU show” to move to that platform, and it’s likely WarnerMedia simply wanted something DC related on their new service as soon as possible, hence why Doom Patrol has moved.
