Hot on the heels of the announcement of their upcoming live action Swamp Thing series, DC Universe have announced a brand new Doom Patrol series, currently scheduled to air in 2019.
The new drama series comes from Berlanti Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television, and is being written by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural, Being Human), who will executive produce alongside by Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Sarah Schechter.
The Doom Patrol will make their debut midway through the first season of Titans, spinning off into their own series shortly thereafter.
Here’s the official blurb:
Doom Patrol is 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.
