Doom Patrol Season 3 Production Status
Doom Patrol season 3 started production on the 4th of January, though the end date of production is currently not known. If I had to guess based on how long previous seasons were filming, I’d say that season 3 should be finishing production around August.
Doom Patrol was renewed for a third season, back in September of 2020. This is what Sarah Aubrey, head of original content at HBO Max, had to say about the series:
Doom Patrol came to HBO Max with an already deep and passionate fan base and has risen to the top as one of the most watched Max Originals on the platform. The series sits well in our portfolio and we are glad to greenlight a third season to continue this distinctive style of storytelling that resonates so well with critics and fans alike.
Back in March, it was revealed that The Flight Attendant and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina actress Michelle Gomez has been cast as Madame Rouge in Doom Patrol season 3. Doom Patrol’s Madame Rouge is described as a complicated and electrifying eccentric who arrives at Doom Manor with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it. Madame Rouge is a leading member of the Brotherhood of Evil. In the comics, she developed a dual good/evil split personality after an automobile accident. As Madame Rouge, De Mille became the only female member of the Brotherhood of Evil, and assisted the Brotherhood in its continuing conflicts against the Doom Patrol. At first, Madame Rouge was simply a master of disguise; subsequent surgery by the Brain eventually gave her the ability to alter her appearance and stretch her limbs.
A month later, the castings for the Brotherhood of Dada and Deadboy Detectives was revealed. The Sisterhood of Dada includes Malcolm (Agent “!”), Shelley Byron (The Frog), Lloyd Jefferson (Frenzy), Holly McKenzie (Sleepwalk), and Sachiko (The Quiz), who will be played by Micah Parker, Wynn Everett, Miles Mussenden, Anita Kalathara, and Gina Hiraizumi respectively. The Dead Boy Detectives will be joining the Sisterhood of Dada in the third season of Doom Patrol. This version of the Detectives is actually an agency, known as the Dead Boy Detective Agency. The Dead Boy Detective Agency consists of Crystal Palace, Edwin Payne, and Charles Rowland, who will be played by Madalyn Horcher, Ty Tennant, and Sebastian Croft respectively.
Malcolm (Agent “!”), who is played by Micah Parker, is a quiet, sensitive, and thoughtful soul who would often rather be invisible than face this unforgiving world. Shelley Byron (The Fog): Supposedly a deadly terrorist, Shelley is charming, seductive, poetic and a bit mad. Lloyd Jefferson (Frenzy): A sculptor of strange life-like masks who is covered with tattoos and scars – the memories and injustices that immortalize his life – he is cryptic and stoic with a capacity for extreme devastation.
Holly McKenzie (Sleepwalk): A light-hearted ne’er do well, Holly knows where the best parties are. After a wild night of partying, she usually takes a nice long nap in the ice cream truck where she works, and if she is awoken mid-nap, there is hell to pay. Sachiko (The Quiz): She is an enigmatic germaphobe whose crippling phobias mask awe-inspiring powers. A Japanese woman with a fear of dirt, The Quiz had every power you hadn’t thought of. To make her lose a power, you had to think it.
Madalyn Horcher plays Crystal Palace, a cool, sarcastic teen who is also a psychic medium, her only friends are Charles and Edwin, the two dead boys who freed her from demonic possession. Tennant will Edwin Payne who has been dead since 1916. Edwin spent 80 years in hell due to a “clerical error” and has seen horrors no one could imagine. Sebastian Croft portrays Charles Rowland, who is described as affable, charming, and dead since 1989, he always does his best to be chipper, but his death by hypothermia and neglect haunts him.
Doom Patrol Season 3 Release Date
The Vulcan Reporter has learned that Doom Patrol Season 3 is currently planned to premiere on the 23rd of September, 2021.
The first season of Doom Patrol premiered on DC Universe on February 15, 2019, with episodes releasing until May 24, 2019. The first season consists of 15 episodes. A second season premiered on both DC Universe and HBO Max on June 25, 2020. The third season will be premiering on the 23rd of September.
Assuming that Doom Patrol season 3 has 13 episodes and follows a similar release schedule as season 2 (and season 3 of Titans), the first three episodes will be released at once, with the remaining episodes premiering weekly. This would imply that the season 3 finale of the series would be premiering on December 2, 2021.
It is worth noting that season 3 of HBO Max’s Titans was originally set to premiere on the 15th of July, with the season finale premiering on the 23rd of September. Titans has since been delayed, though this implies that HBO Max wanted Titans and Doom Patrol to air back-to-back. If HBO Max plans to continue this schedule after Doom Patrol, it would mean that another DC show will be premiering its new season on the 2nd of December.
