Doom Patrol, the show about a group of reluctant outcast superheroes, will debut the first three episodes of its second season this Thursday, June 25, on subscription streamers HBO Max and DC Universe. Subsequent episodes will debut weekly through August 6.

In season two, the super pariahs – Cliff Steele/Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor/Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Jane/Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Victor Stone/Cyborg (Joivan Wade) – find themselves miniaturized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. Eric Morden/Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk) may be defeated, but collectively they must deal with the impact of Niles Caulder/The Chief’s (Timothy Dalton) betrayal. They must also unite to protect the newest member of the group, Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro), Niles’ daughter. Her mysterious powers could lead to the end of the world.

DC Comics introduced The Doom Patrol characters in 1963. Although they had guested in numerous animated and live action TV shows, the misfits didn’t get their own series until Doom Patrol debuted its first 15-episode series on DC Universe last year.
