Matthew Zuk and Riley Shanahan could reprise their Negative Man and Robotman roles, respectively.

Doom Patrol Season 4 Storyline
In Season 3, the Doom Patrol mourns the death of the Chief, who died of old age. The superheroes are later seen dealing with the Sisterhood of Dada and the Brotherhood of Evil. At the same time, they reflect on their identities and life goals. The Brain is seen inhabiting Cliff’s old body in the season finale, but Laura nearly destroys him. On the other hand, Shipley prevents Laura from going back in time because the past cannot be changed. Later, Rita pretends to support the Brain but murders him. Madame Rouge wants to help the heroes and joins the Doom Patrol. The Doom Patrol has finally come together and is ready to take on another mission.
Season 4 will address the fates of all Doom Patrol members as they progress toward becoming a fully functional team. Madame Rogue’s role in the group and Rita’s reservations about her may be necessary for the future storyline. We may also learn what happened to Monsieur Mallah after he left the Brotherhood of Evil. Furthermore, the Brain may return despite what happens at the end of Season 3. The Sisterhood of Dada, which is still on the loose, could be the focus of another intriguing plot point. The fourth iteration may prioritize the Doom Patrol’s internal dynamics, focusing on their thoughts and desires.
