DC looks to be making a massive splash in the streaming world as it has greenlit yet another television series, this time from DC CW legend, Greg Berlanti.
Doom Patrol, based on the comic book team of the same name, is a reimagining of the comic, executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns, Jeremy Carver, and Sarah Schechter.
The show will be a one hour drama and received a 13-episode straight-to-series order from DC Universe and Warner Bros. It will be written by Jeremy Carver and overseen by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
The team has already been confirmed to appear in the upcoming television series Titans, which is also set to premiere on DC Universe. Doom Patrol will take place following the team’s appearance on Titans and will include an appearance by Cyborg, an original member of the Teen Titans who has not been confirmed to appear on that show due to the character’s tie to DC’s film universe.

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.
DOOM PATROL will begin production this year for a 2019 debut on DC Universe
