Tv Season Info

A re-imagining of one of DC's most beloved group of outcast Super Heroes: Robotman, Negative Man, Elasti-Girl and Crazy Jane, led by modern-day mad scientist Dr. Niles Caulder (The Chief). The Doom Patrol's members each suffered horrible accidents that gave them superhuman abilities--but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found purpose through The Chief, who brought them together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence--and to protect Earth from what they find. 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. Picking up after the events of Titans, Doom Patrol will find these reluctant heroes in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg, who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse, but with a warning that is hard to ignore: their lives will never, ever be the same.

Critic Reviews for Doom Patrol: Season 1

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (9)

I found the first hour of this oddball adventure far more enjoyable and consistent than DC Universe's Titans, enlivened by sharp direction and a great ensemble.

Doom Patrol is a super fun surprise! An ensemble show that really works and is a must see for fans of the comics, and those that know nothing about them.

It's a legit show, often very funny, hiding in plain sight on the DC app.

This dark horse series is a balanced mix of action and comedy, but doesn't ignore the intrinsic empathy a series needs to be emotionally resonant, something lost in so many superhero stories and spin off series.

Boasting solid ensemble performances with great production values to boot, Doom Patrol is definitely your brand of Vodka if you are looking for an incendiary concoction of action, adventure, violence, weirdness, heart and soul.

The fun thing about Doom Patrol is that none of them are meant to be superheroes - nor do they want to be (with the exception of Cyborg). Sometimes the underdog story can be played out, but that definitely isn't the case with this series.
