Doom Patrol Star Says Season 4’s ’80s-Inspired Musical Episode Is Unlike Anything You’ve Seen

The Doom Patrol returns next week for its fourth season, and things are about to get weirdly lyrical for the team.

doom patrol returns to HBO Max on December 8 with a new season that involves a lot of time travel by the super-powered team. According to one of the show’s stars, fans should prepare for some interesting episodes, especially a musical that is “unlike any musical episode you’ve ever seen.” April Bowlby, who plays Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman on the show, spoke to SFX Magazine about the new season and one episode in particular that no one should miss out on. She said:

“There is so much time travel and there are alternate universes as well. There’s this fabulous alternate universe that we think is maybe in the ’80s. It’s this magical musical episode that we do. It is completely magical. We are all under this strange spell. It’s unlike any musical episode you’ve ever seen. It’s so cinematic. Not to mention, we have some real singers on our show. Then we have Michelle Gomez and I, who aren’t singers at all, so you get this nice comedy through the songs.”

Bowlby’s Elasti-Girl takes on the role of team leader in the new season, something the actress has been very excited about. She continued:


“It was very exciting, because throughout the three seasons I have wanted Rita to finally have her fabulous outfit, since she is an actress and we need it to act. It’s actually perfect that Rita has taken on the role of team leader. She is now taking it to the full artistic level of actress of what is most important, which is a fabulous costume and codename.”
