Doom Patrol Final Run This October; Director on Casey/Dorothy & More

With Max's Doom Patrol wrapping up its run in October, midseason return episode director Bosede Williams previews what viewers can expect.

We've got some good news to pass along to fans of Max's DC's Doom Patrol who've been wondering when the final episodes would be hitting their screens. Thanks to an interview with midseason return episode director Bosede Williams, EW confirmed that the series will wrap up its run in October. As we previously reported, the midseason return will pick up right from the midseason finale. Yup, in Orqwith – as Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Robotman (Brendan Fraser/Riley Shanahan) fight to keep their longevity out of the hands (???) of the force known as Immortus. Now, Williams is sharing series creator Jeremy Craver's mindset in finally presenting the pocket dimension, the sense of hope that Casey Brinke (Madeline Zima) and Dorothy (Abi Monterey) will bring, and how the team will be haunted by – '60s TV talk show interruptions? Here are some of the highlights from the conversation:

Needing to Do Right by the Viewers When It Came to Presenting Orqwith: "The show creator [Jeremy Carver] really wanted to present Orqwith to the fans because they've been talking about it since season 1. We knew that it should be dark and completely disorienting because the characters have never seen anything like it. It should be gloomy, just to really take them out of their elements. We worked very closely with the production designer to put it together and figure out: What was the lighting going to be? How big were the bones? What were the flowers going to look like? There were so many details. It was really fun putting together that world."

Casey & Dorothy: The Hope That The Team So Desperately Needs: "They're the beacons of light, and I think we do need that. 'Doom Patrol' is dark; it is about trauma and dysfunction. But Casey evokes a simpler time. They bring the brightness, and it's really nice to see them come running in when they do."

"Doom Patrol" is Truly a Show Where "Anything Goes" – including '60s TV Talk Show Moments: "The thing about 'Doom Patrol' is that really, anything goes. And that's so much fun as a filmmaker, are you kidding me? To be able to pull from other eras and other worlds, it's like a dream come true. Working with the set decorator, I was like, 'No, I think we're kind of going for a look like Sears and Roebuck, like your grandmother's sofa.' It's just so much fun. Between the characters, the storylines, the locations, and the sets, there's just so much going on. It's so rich, it's so fulfilling, and you really want to just be as wacky as you can."
