HBO Max has officially announced Doom Patrol Season 5 is canceled. Despite the popularity of the series, we will not get another season! HBO Max spokesperson said, “While these will be the final seasons of Titans and Doom Patrol, we are very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings.”
He added, “We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for making such a thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt series. For Doom Patrol, we celebrate showrunner Jeremy Carver and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns, Chris Dingess, and Tamara Becher-Wilkinson.
For four seasons, fans have fallen in love with the Titans and Doom Patrol, investing in their trials and tribulations, and in their legendary battles saving the world time and time again.”
What To Expect From Doom Patrol Season 5?
Despite the cancelation, several storylines could’ve been used in Season 5 considering the events of last season. The Doom Patrol might’ve continued to deal with the aftermath of their journey to the future. In season 4, the team was informed of their ultimate destiny, and they had to try and change their fate.
A third alternative is that the Doom Patrol will encounter a new danger during season 5. A new villain or a threat to the world itself? Whatever the plot of Season 5 would’ve been, it would definitely have been strange, exciting, and heartwarming!
On the other hand, showrunner Jeremy Carver has discussed the show in interviews. Carver revealed that he had conceptions about a Doom Patrol Season 5 before the cancelation and hopes for the series to be prolonged.
He noted that he is willing to venture into new storylines in Season 5 and continue to tell tales that are “fresh, inventive, and emotionally potent.”
Doom Patrol Season 5 Cast
If the fifth season of Doom Patrol would’ve been on the cards, the main cast would most likely return. We can expect to see the return of the following cast members:
- Brendan Fraser
- Matt Bomer
- April Bowlby
- Diane Guerrero

Before the cancelation, there were rumors that the season would include a crossover with the Titans show on HBO Max. This is a superhero story about a group of young superheroes such as Dick Grayson / Nightwing and Raven in Titans.
