Doom Patrol could have had more episodes!

The second season of Doom Patrol” is currently streaming on DC Universe and HBOMax. The season has a total of nine episodes, but it possibly could have had one more, but like so much of the world, The Covid crisis changed all that.

“It was basically all finished,” Abigail Shapiro, who plays Dorothy Spinner, told Insider of filming the second season. “There was going to be one more episode and we only had a couple of scenes left, but we never got to finish that episode.”

“So, I don’t know if that episode is ever going to air or anything,” Shapiro added. “I don’t know much about what’s happening.”

Shapiro joined the show on its second season as Dorothy, a powerful girl who looks like she could be 11, but is actually over a century old and with the ability to destroy the world.

Despite production shutting down near the end of filming, it sounds like the second season should wrap up with a resolution.

“We have [episodes] one through nine, which is basically the whole season,” said Shapiro. “We got basically everything done, which I’m very grateful for.”

Shapiro says she has been quarantining in Florida with her family. While she’s been auditioning for a few other projects, she’d love to continue working on the DC Universe series.

“I hope we get another season of ‘Doom Patrol,’ just putting that out there,” said Shapiro. “That would be amazing. Right now it’s all just kind of a waiting game to see what happens.”
