Looks like you’re going to have to wait just a bit longer to see Wonder Woman 1984 this fall. Even worse, your favorite DC Comics series on CW aren’t coming back until next year. It almost feels like on-screen super-heroics are, well, doomed. But don’t despair, all hope is not lost thanks to HBO Max.
One of those new Max Originals (streaming on June 25th) is the second season of Doom Patrol. Wait, what’s a Doom Patrol? And how does it have a second season when I’ve never even seen the first?
The Doom Patrol is a superhero team the likes of which you’ve never seen, even though many of these characters have been around since the early 1960s. Often compared to the X-Men, they not only predate them by several months but they somehow manage to be even more tragic than Marvel’s team of mutants.
OK, time for team roll call! Doom Patrol reporting for duty. First, we’ve got the mummy-like Negative Man (Matt Bomer) who houses a being of pure energy inside himself…
OK, this show is weird. Good weird. Things you’ve never really seen in a superhero series kind of weird. Like what? Well, here are a few examples from season one…
Doom Patrol isn’t the only original series coming to HBO Max this summer. There’s a little something for everyone like brand new animated favorites…
If you’re a fan of comedy-meets-documentary types of series and Crazy Rich Asians you’re covered!
As for another Original, Amy Schumer is back (it’s been a while but you’ll soon find out why) with her new three-part documentary series.
Those are just a few of the new series coming exclusively to HBO Max this summer in addition to those that premiered with its launch. Plus all the new shows and movies on HBO are going to be there too.
Sign up for HBO Max for $14.99 a month and access countless series and movies and of course HBO Max Originals like Doom Patrol.
We’re not saying drop everything but you should really check out Doom Patrol as superhumanly fast as possible.
