Doom Patrol returns to HBO Max on Dec. 8 for a fourth season, featuring Immortus!

Per comic book lore, General Immortus, one of Doom Patrol’s oldest adversaries, was first introduced back in in 1955. The cabler teases that Season Four will kick off with the team unexpectedly traveling 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?

The series reimagines one of DC’s most beloved groups of superheroes: “Robotman” aka Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), “Negative Man” aka Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), “Elasti-Woman” aka Rita Farr (April Bowlby), “Crazy Jane” (Diane Guerrero), “Cyborg” aka Victor Stone (Joivan Wade), joined by former super villain “Madame Rouge” aka Laura de Mille (Michelle Gomez). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of super-powered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.

Season 4 will debut with two episodes on Thursday, Dec. 8 on HBO Max, followed by one episode weekly through January 5.

An additional six new episodes from season four will be released in 2023.

Doom Patrol is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television with showrunner Jeremy Carver, Geoff Johns, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Chris Dingess and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson serving as executive producers.

The series is based on characters created for DC by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani.
