Doom Patrol has had a long and strange life, emerging right as the DCEU began to collapse and just before a pandemic struck, while launching on DC Universe, the titular company’s streaming platform before Max (then HBO Max) gobbled it up . But all strange things must come to an end, and Doom Patrol Being one of the strangest things finally comes to an end with the second half of season four, for which Max has just released a trailer.
For everyone who kept up Doom Patrol The trailer should make sense to those who haven’t yet… good luck. The weirdest and strangest of all DC shows, Doom Patrol has always been stranger than anything else in the multiverse and, paradoxically, probably would have lived quite well in James Gunn and Peter Safran’s new attempt at creating a DC cinematic universe. Instead, it all ends with one final adventure for the offbeat superhero team, with plenty of discussion about longevity. Yes, things are getting pretty meta this season… or even more meta. This season, the team finds themselves in a number of troubles that seem to have to do with their past, and of course, more butts attack. You can watch the trailer, released on YouTube, below.
