watch Doom Patrol season 2 online

Doom Patrol season 2 will begin at 9 PM EST / 6 PM PST on June 25. There’ll be nine episodes in total, which is fewer than in season one. On the plus side, the first three episodes will be released on day one, with a new episode each week after that. Excited? Read on to find out how to live stream Doom Patrol wherever you are in the world.

We’ll only be recommending official sources for watching Doom Patrol season 2 online. Although unlicensed streams may be available, these are at constant risk of being taken offline, and to make matters worse, they usually have very low video quality. There are plenty of ways to stream the new season online, meaning there’s no need to use shady third-party sources.

Doom Patrol season 2 will only be broadcast on region-locked streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad and want to watch on your usual services from back home, you’ll have to connect to a Virtual Private Network (VPN).

How to stream Doom Patrol from abroad with a VPN

The good news is that it’s really quite simple to spoof your location with a VPN. In fact, you can get connected and start streaming in a matter of minutes.

Here’s how to watch Doom Patrol season 2 online from anywhere:

  1. Start by signing up for a high-speed, high-security VPN. We recommend ExpressVPN but NordVPN and CyberGhost are two excellent low-cost alternatives.
  2. Now, install the VPN app on whichever device you’d like to watch Doom Patrol on. Usually, you’ll be allowed up to five simultaneous connections, but this varies depending on your provider.
  3. Log in to the app and connect to a server in the appropriate location. You’ll need a US server to unblock HBO Max, for instance, or a British server for Starz Play.
  4. Visit your chosen streaming service. Log in or create an account if you need to.
  5. Finally, try watching something. You should find that the video loads instantly with no errors. If not, clearing your cookies and refreshing the page should fix most issues.

If you live in a country where Doom Patrol is airing live, we strongly recommend testing your VPN ahead of the premiere. This ensures that if anything doesn’t work as expected, you’ll have enough time to get help from your VPN’s customer support team.

How to watch Doom Patrol season 2 on US TV

New episodes of Doom Patrol will air on two networks simultaneously, which is certainly unusual. Fans can stream the second season on both DC Universe ($7.99 USD per month) and HBO Max ($14.99 per month). Each service includes a seven-day free trial, so you can try them both out before making a decision.

If you already get HBO as part of your cable TV package or part of an existing YouTube TV, Hulu, or Apple TV subscription, you should be able to watch HBO Max at no added cost. Additionally, this service will be making the first three episodes of season 1 available for free ahead of the second season premiere.

DC Universe and HBO Max are both geo-restricted and can only be accessed from within the US. If you’re currently abroad, you can get around this by connecting to an American VPN server. Don’t have a VPN yet? ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to stream Doom Patrol risk-free. If you’re unimpressed, you can just cancel to get a full refund.

Where else can I stream Doom Patrol online?

Doom Patrol will have a fairly swift international release, which is great news since the first season took almost a year to arrive in some countries outside of the US. Take a look below to find out which networks are showing the new series where you live:

British fans can breathe a sigh of relief — Doom Patrol season 2 will be coming to the UK on July 16. Like the first series, it’ll air exclusively on Starz Play, which costs £4.99 per month (after a seven-day free trial). If you’d prefer, instead of signing up directly, you can watch via the Starz Play addon for Amazon Prime Video, although there’s no real benefit to doing this.

Starz Play also has the entire first season so if you’re not quite caught up (or are a new fan looking to jump into the series), it’s got you covered. This platform is geo-restricted, so if you’re outside of the UK, you’ll need to connect to a British VPN server.

The second season of Doom Patrol will be broadcast live on CTV Sci-Fi at the same time that it airs in the US (9 PM EST each Thursday from June 25). There is a pretty significant caveat, though: as CTV doesn’t have any over-the-top options, you’ll need a cable subscription to log in and watch anything.

If you’d like to re-watch the first series ahead of the premiere, you can find all 15 episodes on Crave. This service costs $9.99 CAD per month and offers a seven-day free trial. If you’re quick, it’s possible to stream the entire first season and simply cancel to avoid being charged.

CTV and Crave are both region-locked. This means that if you’re outside Canada, you’ll have to connect to a Canadian VPN server to use them.

Unfortunately, there are no details as to when Australian viewers can stream Doom Patrol season 2 online. However, when it is released, it’ll almost certainly air on FOX8, a network that has shown pretty much every other DC TV show.

Foxtel TV customers can log into the Foxtel Go app and watch online at no added cost. If you’re with a different provider (or looking to watch Doom Patrol) without cable, it’s possible to sign up for Foxtel Now ($25 AUD per month, ten-day free trial). Looking to stream the first season as well? You’ll find it on Binge, a newer service that’s $10 per month following a two-week trial period.

Binge and Foxtel services are both geo-restricted. As such, you’ll need a VPN to access them from abroad.

What can fans expect from season 2 of Doom Patrol?

The season 2 Doom Patrol trailer indicates that Dorothy, Niles’ daughter, will be the main driving force of the series. All we really know is that she has as-yet-unknown powers and poses a real threat to the world if those powers aren’t kept under control. Of course, there will be plenty of comedic moments too, with the trailer including clips of the heroes punching rats, failing to use their powers, and just generally pushing one another’s buttons.
