The lovable misfits of Doom Patrol are back with Season 4, featuring an all-new series of whacky and insane adventures. Comprising of Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Vic Stone (Joivan Wade), Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer / Matthew Zuk), Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser / Riley Shanahan), and recent addition Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez), the team has gone up against many surreal and world-ending enemies over their previous seasons. What makes this show so unique though, is the way in which it portrays the characters as deeply-flawed and traumatized people who help each other grow, evolve, and heal. It’s easily one of the best superhero shows currently running and with Season 4, things have gotten better than ever.
This season, the titular team faces a threat unlike anything they’ve seen before: the followers of a god-like being called Immortus who want to steal the Doomies’ youth and longevity to bring their deity to life. In the process, we’ve seen the members of Doom Patrol confront serious questions about their lives and the choices they’ve made over the years. Ahead of Episode 6 “Hope Patrol”, the mid-season finale, Collider caught up with series star Diane Guerrero (who’s also known for her brilliant voice work in Disney’s Encanto) for an interview where we talked about the most recent episode, Jane’s growth and evolution over the course of the season, and how excited she is about the musical episode that is due to arrive with the second batch of Season 4 episodes.
