It’s hard to argue that superhero movies and TV shows are having a golden age right now. It’s one of the most popular stories because they all take place in their unique worlds. Because of the careful planning and precise writing that went into making these worlds, there is no doubt that the amount and quality of content available to viewers are at an all-time high. But DC’s Doom Patrol is very different and has been quietly taking over the superhero TV market. The show started on DC Universe and then moved to HBO Max. Critics and viewers have almost all said good things about it.
Doom Patrol makes its strangeness even stronger by embracing every part of it. Grant Morrison’s version of the DC comics is where most of the show’s ideas come from. Morrison is known for being different and pushing the limits, and the series tries to do the same thing. In addition to using some of their best-known characters and storylines, the series adds more strange new things to make it even stranger.
The first time we saw the Doom Patrol was in the fourth episode of Season 1 of Titans. They are a grim and dark version of the well-known young team of superheroes and former sidekicks in the DC Universe who wanted to protect the weak. Even though Robin and Starfire are famous characters in the Titans, the main characters in Doom Patrol may be ones that the average DC fan needs to learn more about. But despite being unknown, the show has done well so far and is about to release its fourth season. Here is all the information you need about the following season.
When Will Doom Patrol Season 4 Come Out?
Season 4 of Doom Patrol will start in October 2021. The first part of Season 4 will begin on December 8, 2022. The first two episodes will air at the same time. Until January 5, 2023, a new episode will appear every week. After that, the show will take a break until the end of the season, when the last six episodes will air.

Watch Doom Patrol Season 4 Trailer
The trailer for Doom Patrol came out on October 9, 2022. It has more chaos and weirdness than we could have imagined. The first trailer for the fourth season is, as usual, full of strange and funny things, so fans know they’re in for a wild ride. The teaser shows a dark underground building where a top-secret government weapons program is hidden. The following hazardous experiment involves killing scientists by smashing them into a large glass window in a sealed, misty room. The threat is a group of singing butts walking on their hands to the song “Shipoopi” in a choreographed routine.
Along with the singing and dancing butts, the team is back together. Robot-Man is back in his armored body, Cyborg is enjoying his new human form, and Michelle Gomez’s Madame Rogue is hanging out with the group as they work to “save the f*cking world.” As usual, the team will get into a lot of fights and literally and figuratively kick asses. In the teaser, an enemy also seems to be shooting a full energy beam from his groyne. That’s just the way Doom Patrol is.

Where Can I Watch Doom Patrol Season 4?
Season 4 will only be available to stream on HBO Max starting December 8, just like Season 3.
Season 1 of Doom Patrol ended in May 2019 on the streaming service DC Universe, which is no longer available. The second season started in June 2020 and ran until August the same time on both HBO Max and DC Universe. Beginning with the third season, which started in September 2021 and ended in November 2021, Doom Patrol was only available on HBO Max.
What is Doom Patrol Season 4 About?
Doom Patrol is about the unlikely heroes of the team’s name. They all got their superpowers because of bad things that happened to them, and most people don’t like them. In the first few seasons, fans saw each character come to terms with their unique powers and the bad things that happened in their pasts that led them to where they are now. The show takes care to talk about each character’s psychological scars and how they affect them, but it also has its share of weirdness, and it looks like Season 4 will do the same. Warner Bros. Television released an official summary of Season 4 before the Doom Patrol panel at New York Comic-Con 2022. See for yourself:
In the upcoming fourth season, the team unexpectedly travels to the future to find an unwelcome surprise. Faced with their imminent demise, the Doom Patrol must decide which is more important: their happiness or the world’s fate.
Time travel has been used as a plot point in a number of exciting shows, and having it as a plot point in a show like Doom Patrol has many benefits. First, since Cliff Steele/Robot-Man had been tested for years, a new era would allow him to learn more about the past (and future).
Vic Stone/Cyborg will learn what it means to be a superhero without superpowers now that he has changed his body with synthetic skin and taken on a human shape. Vic could also get urgently needed upgrades in the future if he could travel through time. This would give the group another strategic advantage when he turns back into Cyborg. He will have to find new ways to help his friends while stepping back from all the glory and fame he’s used to as Cyborg. And since Madame Rouge and Rita have been to the past, there are a lot of possibilities for them. The fact that Doom Patrol goes back in time could also make it possible for crossovers between that show and Titans and Stargirl.
How Many Episodes Are In Doom Patrol Season 4?
Season 4 of Doom Patrol will have 12 episodes, more than Season 3. Each episode will be between 44 and 58 minutes long. Before the release date was announced, the episode names were made public. Some attacks may have names that fans of the Doom Patrol comics will recognize. Episode 5’s title, “Casey Patrol,” may reference Casey Brinke/Space Case, a paramedic who later joins the team and is revealed to be a space hero. Episode 10’s title, “Immortimas Patrol,” is probably a reference to General Immortus, an ancient invader who has fought the Doom Patrol members many times in the comics. The “Butt Patrol” title of Episode 6 suggests that the “butt monster” will also be back. Here is a complete list of episode names and when they will air:
Episode 1: “Hope Patrol” – December 8, 2022
Episode 2: “Nostalgia Patrol” – December 8, 2022
Episode 3: “Fame Patrol” – December 15, 2022

Who’s in Season 4 of Doom Patrol?
Many people are happy to hear that the whole cast will be back. Fans can expect to hear Brendan Fraser in his voice role and see Riley Shanahan as Robot-Man, April Bowlby as Rita Farr/Elasti-Woman, Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, and Mattew Zuk in costume, Diane Guerrero as Kay Challis/Crazy Jane, and Joivan Wade as Cyborg. Niles Caulder, played by Timothy Dalton, might not return because the character died in Season 3. However, death has never really been a problem in the Doom Patrol world, so that he might return.
Laura De Mille/Madame Rogue, played by Michelle Gomez, joins the team in Season 4. She was first seen in Season 3. She is a strange metahuman who can travel through time and take on the appearance of other people, animals, and things. Elijah Rashad Reed will join the Doom world as a recurring character named Deric. Deric is an intelligent and civic-minded robotics teacher who gets pulled into Vic Stone’s life, which is very different from his own. Sendhil Ramamurthy is another new addition to the cast. He will play the villain, Mr. 104, described as a charming and attractive man who can change into any element he wants. This makes him a threat to any enemy he meets. Madeline Zima is also joining the cast as a recurring character. She will play Casey Brinke/Space Case, an EMT who gets caught up in the Patrol’s adventures and finds out how she got to be the way she is.
