Media outlets are reporting that DC animated series Harley Quinn has been renewed for a third season and will become a HBO Max exclusive as DC Universe will transition out of scripted originals to solely a comic book subscription service.
The series focuses on Harley Quinn, who breaks up with the Joker and strikes out on her own in order to make a name for herself. With the help of Poison Ivy and a ragtag crew of villainous misfits and castoffs, Harley tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy…the Legion of Doom. In the second season, Gotham has become a desolate wasteland, left in ruins, following the huge earthquake caused by the collapse of Joker’s tower. Harley’s celebration in this newly created chaos is cut short when Penguin, Bane, Mr. Freeze, The Riddler and Two Face join forces to restore order in the criminal underworld. Calling themselves the Injustice League, this group now stands in the way of Harley and her crew from taking sole control of Gotham as the top villains of the city.
Along with the announcement of the renewal from Warner Bros., it’s been reported that the DC Universe will now relaunch as DC Universe Infinite on the 21st January 2021 in the U.S, before expanding globally in summer 2021. The relaunch will include more than 24,000 comics, along with digital-first comics, exclusive access to DC fan events and a stream of recently released comics six months after the physical versions are released in stores.
Harley Quinn stars Kaley Cuoco, Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Tony Hale, Ron Funches, J.B Smoove, James Adomian, Diedrich Bader, Brianna Cuoco, Tom Hollander and Christopher Meloni.
