HBO Max Cancels “Doom Patrol,” “Titans”


An HBO Max spokesperson has confirmed that the current fourth seasons of both “Titans” and “Doom Patrol” will be the final runs of the DC Comics dramas.

A spokesman for the streamer tells THR: “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. We are grateful to Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television for making such thrilling, action-packed, heartfelt series.”

According to the trade, producers on both shows “saw the writing on the wall” amidst all the changes with DC Entertainment and thus plotted their current seasons with proper endings in mind.

The two titles were amongst several that originated on the now defunct DC Universe streaming service – the others being “Swamp Thing” which was cancelled after one season, “Stargirl” and “Young Justice” which ended after several seasons each last year, and the acclaimed adult animated series “Harley Quinn” which is ongoing.

The decision to wrap both shows comes amid changes at DC and HBO Max under Warner Bros. Discovery. The decision to end both shows was reportedly made before the announcement of James Gunn and Peter Safran taking over DC. The pair are reportedly plotting a new, more integrated roster of films and TV series.

That leaves the fate of the handful of DC shows currently on the air in question. With “The Flash” finishing up, the only shows left are Gunn’s own “Peacemaker” which is expected to get a second season, The CW’s “Superman & Lois” which is about to kick off its third season, and “Gotham Knights” which will premiere shortly.

Greg Berlanti is reportedly reworking “Green Lantern” for HBO Max, but he is not expected to be heavily involved with DC Comics programming under his new pact with Warners.
