NYCC 2022: Doom Patrol Season 4 will premiere in December and have singing butts


Frankly, I don’t know what you want me to say about Season 4 of Doom Patrol. When your trailer features a bunch of murderous butt monsters dressing up and singing “Shipoopi” from The Music Man, I’m at a loss for words. It’s perfectly in line with the insanity of the show, but my God is it good to see this series still ongoing. It’s also strange to say that this isn’t even the weirdest thing the show has produced.

Doom Patrol is a national treasure and the past three seasons have been some of the best seasons of television in recent years. While it’s still unclear if this show is going to survive David Zaslav’s guillotine to a lot of HBO Max properties, we can rest easy knowing that we have at least one more season of Doom Patrol to enjoy. The season will see the Doom Patrol travel to the future in the premiere and deal with actually becoming a superhero team given the events of the third season finale. The team dynamic will seemingly get more complex though given that former villainess Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) will now become a team member and everyone is still in a pretty awful mental state given everything that’s happened to them.

Season 4 of Doom Patrol will premiere on December 8th with a two-episode premiere, followed by episodes airing weekly until January 5th. Have no fear though if you think that means this is going to be a shorter season; six more episodes have been confirmed to release sometime in 2023, which leads me to believe that they won’t be premiering weekly after January 5th due to the phrasing on the announcement.

There’s a lot more detail to cover with Doom Patrol, but you’ll have to tune in later this week once we run an interview with the cast of Doom Patrol as they share some further insight on the fourth season as well as the show in general. Stay tuned!
