“Doom Patrol” season 4 brings back its beloved queer characters for all kinds of drama and excitement.

What Can You Expect From The New “Doom Patrol” Season?

DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” is truly one of the most unique teams of superheroes on TV, each one of them with deeply layered histories and traumas. With richly portrayed characters and a show that digs deep into their mental wounds, “Doom Patrol” has solidified its place among viewers looking for something wildly different. Season 4 promises to be no different, as it will ramp up that weirdness even more!

The Doom Patrol series stands out for its eclectic array of characters. First among them are the queer characters, namely Crazy Jane, Larry Trainor, and Clara Steele. Alongside these unusual heroes are the rest of the Doom Patrol members: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Woman, Cyborg, and Madame Rouge. Each team member possesses special abilities that make them a force to be reckoned with. Together, they show that even alienated misfits can stand up and make a difference in hostile environments.

To this point, the series has explored how tragedy helped shape each hero individually, delving into the origin stories of each character. But a surprising twist awaits in season 4. According to the official synopsis, the team unexpectedly travels to the future to find an unwelcome surprise. Faced with their imminent demise, the Doom Patrol must decide once and for all which is more important: their own happiness or the fate of the world?

"In the past seasons, we have spent a good deal of time going backwards and seeing how our Doom Patrol got here. In this season, we are going to see — in really fun and poignant ways — the Doom Patrol travel to different points of time," the show's creator Jeremy Carver said.
