DC’s meta, sweary superhero series is finally coming to UK screens…
When Titans started streaming on Netflix UK, it was expected that there would soon be an acquisition announcement about its spinoff show, Doom Patrol. However, time passed and there was no sign of the critically acclaimed sci-fi series on UK shores.
Some good news has finally arrived for UK viewers still curious about the show, though – Amazon Prime Video UK subscription channel STARZPLAY will be streaming the entire 15-episode first season from 2nd January.
Doom Patrol stars Matt Bomer, Brendan Fraser, Diane Guerrero and April Bowlby, and follows a ragtag team of unlikely heroes, led by their not-so-wonderful carer and scientist, Niles Caulder (Timothy Dalton). Firefly‘s Alan Tudyk plays supervillain Mr. Nobody, a consistent thorn in the group’s side who often breaks the fourth wall and complains about the show’s tropes and narrative issues. It’s really fun!
The show was recently renewed for a second season after some concern that it would be cancelled along with fellow DC Universe show, Swamp Thing, a streaming series on the platform that suddenly lost its backing in murky circumstances.
