A couple of weeks ago, some rumors pointed that Doom Patrol had suspended its filming process due to the global outbreak of COVID-19. However, a few hours ago it was confirmed that the series is ready for release in June 2020.
The official social network accounts of Doom Patrol have just announced that the second season of the series will premiere on June 25th on HBO Max. This premiere will be shared between HBO’s streaming platform and DC Universe’s, with the new episodes debuting simultaneously on both platforms.
Until now there wasn’t much information about the plot of this second season of Doom Patrol, but the recent announcement gives a little clarity with the official synopsis. Along with the synopsis, the first promotional poster of the series was also revealed:

“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): they’re back to save the world. That is if they can find a way to grow… both figuratively and literally. After the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the members of Doom Patrol now find themselves in a small size and stranded on Cliff’s toy racetrack. Here they begin to deal with their feelings of betrayal by Niles Caulder, also known as The Chief (Timothy Dalton), as they confront their own personal burdens. 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 that could end the world.”
