Doom Patrol Synopsis

Here's the official synopsis for the show and season 3 from HBO Max:

"Doom Patrol" reimagines one of DC's most beloved groups of Super Heroes: Robotman AKA Cliff Steele (Brendan Fraser), Negative Man AKA Larry Trainor (Matt Bomer), Elasti-Woman AKA Rita Farr (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero) and Cyborg AKA Victor Stone (Joivan Wade), all led by modern-day mad scientist Niles Caulder AKA The Chief (Timothy Dalton). Each member of the Doom Patrol suffered a horrible accident that gave them superhuman abilities, but also left them scarred and disfigured. Part support group, part Super Hero team, the Doom Patrol is a band of superpowered freaks who fight for a world that wants nothing to do with them.
Season three opens on the culmination of Dorothy's (Abi Monterey) confrontation with the Candlemaker that leads to a devastating loss. The Doom Patrol is at a difficult crossroads and each member struggles to face who they are and who they want to be. And things get a whole lot more complicated when Madame Rouge (Michelle Gomez) arrives in a time machine with a very specific mission, if only she could remember it.
