Doom Patrol Season 4 Plot
Doom Patrol 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), and “Cyborg” aka Victor Stone (Joivan Wade), joined by the 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 superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them. According to reports, Season 4 starts when the team unexpectedly travels to the future and finds an unwanted 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.
Take a look at the official teaser of 1:05 minutes below, which states, “Hold on to your butts, a new season is coming! Season 4 Part 1 of # Doom Patrol premieres December 8 on HBO Max.”

Doom Patrol Season 3: What happened in the finale episode?
The finale episode, “Amends Patrol,” aired on November 11, 2021. The episode is directed by Harry Jierjian and written by Chris Dingess. In the episode, the viewers got to see that Shelley, a sisterhood member, leads the Doom Patrol into the fog while Rita pursues the Brotherhood alone.
Larry discovers in the fog that the larva, Keeg, wishes to merge with him in order to survive. Vic helps to keep Keeg’s spirit contained until he and Larry return to Doom Manor, allowing Larry and Keeg to merge. Mallah decides to part ways with the brain, allowing Laura to use the discarded giant robot from the dumping grounds, with Cliff’s brain controlling it. Laura and Cliff’s rampage severely injures Brain, who is later killed when Rita finds him and pours boiling water directly on him.
Jane discovers that all of the other personas have sought refuge in the fog, but they are slowly dying as a result of being cut off from the Underground. She strikes a deal with Dr. Harrison in which she appears to relinquish her position as primary, forcing the others to return. Cliff apologizes to Clara and promises to be a better person before returning to the mansion, where his Parkinson’s disease causes him to lose control of his new robot body and go on a rampage.
Rita manages to stop Cliff by growing to giant proportions after deciding to let a remorseful Laura live. Rita then rallies the team to pursue heroic activities as a supergroup and reluctantly accepts Laura’s invitation to join them. They then use the time machine to travel to the Suez Canal, where a testicle-like monster is wreaking havoc under the team name “Doom Force,” which everyone dislikes except Cliff.
