No matter how many DC Comics shows are airing at any given time, none compare to Doom Patrol, which is why fans will be overjoyed to learn that the show will be returning for a fourth season in 2019.
Following a group of oddball meta-human outcasts, as they face off against increasingly bizarre existential threats, the streaming sensation is inspired by the beloved comic book series, in particular the seminal run by legendary writer Grant Morrison.
Doctor Who’s Michelle Gomez has joined the cast as comic book villain Madame Rouge for the third season, which has seen the gang battle the Sisterhood of Dada.
There were several cast members present at the DC FanDome to announce the renewal of the show, so she may be back for more mind-bending episodes.
Read on to learn more about Doom Patrol season four on HBO Max, including release date rumors and where to watch in the UK, if you’re eager to see what this delightful oddity has in store.
Doom Patrol season 4 release date rumors
US streaming service HBO Max has confirmed that Doom Patrol will be returning for a fourth season, making it the ultimate platform for DC Comics fans.
The release date for the fourth season has yet to be announced, but the show’s release schedule has been suitably unpredictable thus far, starting in February 2019 and ending in June the following year before returning to September for its third outing.

Doom Patrol season 4 cast
Diane Guerrero (Orange Is the New Black) will reprise her role as Jane, a woman with multiple identities and unique abilities, in season four of the Doom Patrol.
Two and a Half Men’s April Bowlby is expected to return as Rita Farr—the ex-Hollywood actress cursed with powers that often turn her into a jelly-like state, but can be very useful when controlled.
White Collar’s Matt Bomer, who celebrated the renewal of Doom Patrol with a celebratory tweet proclaiming: “It’s a good day!” appears likely to return as Larry Trainor (aka Negative Man) in the series.
After a horrific NASCAR accident, Cliff Steele, a former NASCAR driver, became a cyborg, and The Mummy icon Brendan Fraser will reprise his role.
Fraser has also been cast in a villainous role in HBO Max’s upcoming Batgirl movie, which is set in a different continuity to Doom Patrol. Interestingly, the DC Universe is doubling down on Fraser.
This time around, Joivan Wade (The First Purge) is returning as Victor Stone aka Cyborg, a character with strong ties to both the Justice League and the Teen Titans.
For the record, the mysterious Madame Rouge could be back for a fourth season as Michelle Gomez (The Flight Attendant) reprises her role.
In contrast, Timothy Dalton, the former James Bond actor, appears to be nearing the end of his career after the death of Doom Patrol founder The Chief at the start of season three, leaving the team devastated.
Doom Patrol season 4 plot
Doom Patrol season four hasn’t been announced yet, but the series finale airs in the United States later this month, and it’s likely to shed some light on the show’s future.
Because the Doom Patrol’s source material is so bizarre, the possibilities for season four’s Doom Patrol antics are virtually limitless.
