HBO Max Pulls Plug on ‘Doom Patrol’ and ‘Titans’


Two of the DC series on HBO Max, Titans and Doom Patrol, will be coming to an end. Both recently wrapped their six-episode Season 4A runs on the streamer, and the upcoming second halves of their fourth seasons will be the shows’ final chapters. Both had been crafted to give the series a proper ending.


Titans and Doom Patrol, both from Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, are the last live-action series from the slate of the now-defunct DC Universe. They made the transition to HBO Max after the first two seasons when DC Universe folded. Titans and Doom Patrol then ran for two more seasons, with the creatives behind both mapping those seasons to complete their story arcs.


Both Titans and Doom Patrol have been well received by critics, with high marks on Rotten Tomatoes, and have done well on the platform, according to the scarce HBO Max performance data available. They, along with other DC shows that are coming to an end, including The Flash and Stargirl on The CW, close a chapter in Berlanti Prods.’ tenure at Warner Bros. Television Group, which was just extended with a massive new deal. Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC strategy has been undergoing an examination following the recent appointment of new toppers, James Gunn and Peter Safran.


“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,” an HBO Max spokesperson said.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
