'Doom Patrol' Release Time: When Can You Watch New DC Universe Series Online

The next big DC Universe original series is Doom Patrol, based on the comic series and team by the same name.

Here's the synopsis of the new Doom Patrol series.

DOOM PATROL reimagines one of DC's most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman a.k.a. Cliff Steele (BRENDAN FRASER), Negative Man a.k.a. Larry Trainor (MATT BOMER), Elasti-Woman a.k.a. Rita Farr (APRIL BOWLBY) and Crazy Jane (DIANE GUERRERO), led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder a.k.a. The Chief (TIMOTHY DALTON). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Traumatized and downtrodden, the team found their purpose through The Chief, coming together to investigate the weirdest phenomena in existence. Following the mysterious disappearance of The Chief these reluctant heroes will find themselves in a place they never expected to be, called to action by none other than Cyborg (JOIVAN WADE), who comes to them with a mission hard to refuse. 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.
