The first season was only exclusively aired on the streaming service DC Universe. But in order to further boost the show’s audience reach, they will be streaming it on the upcoming HBO Max as well.

“DC’s strangest group of heroes are back again to save the world,” said in the official synopsis.
It also teased that the sophomore run will pick up after the events of the season 1 finale wherein the heroes defeated Mr. Nobody (Alan Tudyk).
But the outcast heroes face a new challenge as they find themselves mini-sized and stuck on Cliff’s toy race car track. Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton) has betrayed them and they will be dealing with his betrayal.
The main characters will also continue to deal with their own personal baggages. Each of them has a past traumatic story that they need to face and grow from.
They will do that while trying to protect the newest member of the family, Dorothy Spinner (Abigail Shapiro).
She is The Chief’s daughter and at the moment her powers are still mysterious. All that is known is that she possesses something that is a real threat to “bringing on the end of the world.”
