We’re inching ever closer to a proper return date for Doom Patrol‘s in-progress final season.
TVLine has confirmed that the DC Comics series will be back for its final batch of episodes (aka Season 4B) in October, as first reported by Entertainment Weekly. A specific premiere date, though, is still TBD.

Doom Patrol‘s Season 4A finale dropped way back on Jan. 5, with minimal news afterward about when the show would be back. In July, some concerned fans asked DC Studios co-chairman James Gunn if Doom Patrol would ever really return for its final installments, prompting his reassuring response that he “can’t imagine a world where completed episodes are not going to be released.”
“I now have confirmation: As I surmised, no, Doom Patrol episodes are absolutely NOT being shelved,” Gunn later followed up, “even though the premiere date for the next shows hasn’t yet been announced to the public.”
It was revealed in January that Doom Patrol and fellow DC series Titans would both end their runs with their respective fourth seasons. At the time, Gunn noted that “the decision to end the series precedes [me and co-chairman Peter Safran],” while a Max spokesperson maintained “we are very proud of these series and excited for fans to see their climactic endings.”
Titans ultimately came back in April for its final stretch of episodes, with the series finale dropping on May 11.
