The third season of Doom Patrol is quickly approaching, as the season premiere rears its face on September 23rd, exclusively on HBO Max. The Titans spinoff has made quite the name for itself, with its off-beat and distinct comic book sensibilities. This popularity seems to have paid off as a spin-off of the spin-off is now in the works at HBO Max, and will follow the adventures of Charles Rowland and Edwin Paine in the Dead Boy Detectives.
HBO Max has ordered a pilot for what could be a potential new property for the franchise. The project is being written by Steve Yockey, who will serve as an executive producer on the project alongside Jeremy Carver. This will mark yet another DC property to fall under Greg Berlanti’s umbrella with Berlanti Productions, who is also set to produce the pilot.
Though the pilot is currently set to begin filming in November, no names are currently attached to the project. Sebastian Croft and Ty Tennant are will play Charles Rowland and Edwin Paine in the upcoming season of Doom Patrol, but neither actor is currently believed to be attached to the project.
This wouldn’t be the first time an actor was recast for a spin-off, with actor Bruno Bichir was replaced by Timothy Dalton as Niles Caulder when the show scored its spin-off. The series will follow the characters, created by Neil Gaiman, as they remain in the world of the living to solve paranormal crimes, instead of moving on into the afterlife.
