Harley Quinn fans can finally, officially rejoice! The adult animated dark comedy was picked up for a third season on Friday morning.
Variety reported the series will air on HBO Max exclusively. It’s previous home DC Universe, meanwhile, continues its transition away from scripted series entirely.
Warner Bros. also announced a rebranding. The service transitions to solely a comic book subscription service called DC Universe Infinite.
The move from DCU to HBO Max is hardly a surprise. Warner Bros. started moving shows over when the new streaming service launched this summer. Doom Patrol‘s second season aired on both platforms.
Harley Quinn joins Young Justice Seasons 1-4, Titans Seasons 1-3, Doom Patrol Seasons 1-3, and Stargirl Season 1 and an upcoming Justice League Dark animated series on HBO Max. Star Girl previously aired on both DCU and the CW Network. When Season 2 arrives, it will only air on the CW.
Harley Quinn continues the march away from programming
Variety further reported that DCU will fully transition away from steaming content in January of 2021 and will re-launch as DC Universe Infinite.
The new offerings will include more than 24,000 comic books. Those include several “digital-first” editions. Digital version of physical comics will be available six months after they hit store shelves.
The new service will be on iOS and Android devices for $7.99 a month or $74.99 a year. A month after launch, every subscriber will also get a voucher to the DC shop. Monthly subscribers get a $10 voucher while annual members get $25.
What’s next for the series?
Harley Quinn Season 2 ended with a romance most fans celebrated. The show’s titular character, voiced by The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco professed her love for Lake Bell’s Poison Ivy. Ivy had been about to marry Kite Man but left him at the alter when she realized she had feelings for her good friend as well.
The show has struck a special kind of balance when it comes to romance and comedy and it should be interesting to see where the story goes. Joker, voiced by Alan Tudyk, is also expected to have recurring appearances after a misdirect in the middle of Season 2.
Joker was thought dead after Season 1. He eventually made a return as an amnesiac bartender who eventually regained his memories and murderous ways.
Along with Bell, Cuoco and Tudyk, Ron Funches (King Shark), Tony Hale (Dr. Psycho), Jason Alexander (Sy Borgman), and J.B. Smoove (Frank the Plant) are all expected to return for Harley Quinn Season 3.
Going up against the anti-heroes, Commissioner Gordon (voiced by Law & Order SVU‘s Christopher Meloni) and Batman (Diedrich Bader) will return as well.
While we do know Harley Quinn will come back, we don’t know when yet. Perhaps in part because of the coronavirus pandemic, an launch date has not been announced.
