A few months ago it became official that a series about the Dead Boy Detectives was in development. It was learned that the series will come to HBO Max, after the developers saw the pilot episode and the platform’s directive gave the green light. After that, not much has been known about the project. With the controversy and the series of changes and movements that have existed in Warner Bros. Discovery, it was even thought that the series would be forgotten. But it turns out that Dead Boy Detectives is alive and this Thursday it was announced that Lukas Gage will be part of the project.
As I mentioned, a pilot episode was recorded, which is the one that finally served for the approval of a complete season. The brothers Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland played by actors George Rextrew and Jayden Revri starred in it. These characters had a presence in the last season of Doom Patrol and it was after this that the pilot episode was made. Dead Boy Detectives will be a reality.

Dead Boy Detectives is still standing with Lukas Gage on board the project
According to a report from Variety this Thursday, Lukas Gage is the latest addition to the Dead Boy Detectives project. The actor known for his participation in Euphoria or The White Lotus will have a recurring role in the series. He will be playing none other than the Cat King, a character described as a charming trickster with an itinerant feline spirit, who develops a keen interest in Edwin. The role was previously held by Alexander Calvert in the later stages of the recast of the series.
Dead Boy Detectives offers a fresh take on a new ghost story. This story explores loss, grief, grief, and death through the eyes of Edwin Payne and Charles Rowland. It’s about two dead British teenagers and their living friend, Crystal Palace.
In addition to the actors already mentioned, the series features the performance of Kassius Nelson, Briana Cuoco, Yuyu Kitamura and Jenn Lyon. Figures such as Steve Yockey, who will be showrunner and who has worked on The Flight Attendant and the Doom Patrol itself, are part of the production. Jeremy Carver, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter will executive produce.
The content director of HBO Max was very excited at the time that the series was approved for an eight-episode season: “We were fascinated by the world of Dead Boy Detectives that was introduced in Doom Patrol, so we can’t wait to follow these supernatural detectives in the hair-raising mysteries to come.”“
There is still no release date for the arrival of this series but we will keep you updated about it and the entire DC Universe.
