The highly-rated DC animated series Harley Quinn is set to return for a third season in less than a year; Harley Quinn has become quite popular in recent years due to Margot Robbie’s appearance in the DCEU films. Nevertheless, The Harley Quinn TV show isn’t falling behind as it has been praised for its unique approach in adapting the DC Comics. The series stars former The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco voicing the titular Anti-Hero Harley Quinn. When season 1 of the show aired, it was praised to be violently delightful. The next season also earned positive reviews as the show was able to keep its energy while giving the characters more room to play with. Nevertheless, we have Harley Quinn Season 3 soon in our midst as it is about to release on HBO Max.
Earlier, Harley Quinn used to air on the DC Universe streaming platform. But now, after the arrival of HBO Max, WarnerMedia has rebranded DC Universe into DC Universe Infinite, a comic-only service. This service will provide the subscribers with a library of DC Comics as they release. While DC Universe Infinite will have comics, all the shows about DC will be moved to HBO Max, except Stargirl, which will air on the CW. And along with this news came that Harley Quinn Season 3 will release on the HBO Max streaming service platform.
What will be the plot for Harley Quinn Season 3?
Harley Quinn Season 2 ended with Harley and Ivy finally being a full-blown romantic couple. And the episode ended as the runaway couple escaped Ivy’s wedding in their getaway car. Now, having evolved from friends to lovers, Harley Quinn Season 3 will delve deeper into their relationship as they navigate their newly formed relationship. Both of these characters were previously in toxic or unequal relationships. And it would be the first time they are with someone that they love equally. Harley had been with The Joker for years as he kept tormenting and manipulating her according to his needs. Meanwhile, Ivy’s relationship with Kite Man was nothing bad. Bur the relationship was unequal as Kite Man loved Ivy more than she loved him. And till now, all we have got is Harley’s perspective, but henceforth, the episodes will delve deeper into Poison Ivy’s backstory and her point of view.
Other than this, we could see who The Joker ends up with. And according to Justin Halpern, we are about to get a standalone Joker episode as well. This will be something similar to the Batman episode we got in Season 2. This will be something interesting as we have seen a new Joker perspective in the show. Other than this, we are even told that the show will have DC villain Mad Hatter make his appearance. We are even going to delve into Commissioner Gordon as he realizes his falling approval rating in Gotham City and how Gotham City Police Department has failed the city. Finally, according to the Music Composer for Harley Quinn, Jefferson Friedman, we will even be witnessing a full musical episode in the third season.
When will Harley Quinn Season 3 Release?
Harley Quinn Season 3 is expected to have its release date somewhere in late 2021 or early 2022. The next season of Harley Quinn is about to be a ten-episode installment into the anti-hero TV series. And like mentioned above, unlike the previous seasons’ release in DC Universe, Harley Quinn Season 3 is set to premiere on HBO Max. And according to the showrunner, Justin Halpern, the only reason the show would be delayed until the end of the year was that the animation takes time. On 20th February 2021, even Patrick Schumacker confirmed a sequel comic to show by DC. This story would tie loosely to the end of season 2 and could possibly come out before the Season 3 drops on HBO Max. He even confirmed two days later that the studio had officially started recording the voices for season 3.
Who will be in the Cast?
There is no clear confirmation of which characters will stay, but we can only assume that the main characters would reprise their roles. The former The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco will voice the titular character, Harley Quinn. Lake Bell would join her in voicing Poison Ivy yet again. Alan Tudyk is sure to return to voice The Joker and the Clayface. Ron Funches will be voicing the surprisingly civil King Shark. J.B. Smoove and Jason Alexander will voice Frank the Plant and Sy Borgman, respectively. Matt Oberg will return as Kite Man while James Adomian will once again voice Bane.
Furthermore, according to what Patrick Schumacker revealed, Diedrich Bader, Jim Rash, and Christopher Meloni had all returned for the season 3 recordings. And they will be voicing Batman, The Riddler, and Commissioner Gordon, respectively. Lastly, according to what showrunner Justin Halpern revealed, he would love to have a group of three supervillains. And he would like them to be voiced by Nathan Fielder, John Wilson, and Joe Pera; He wants a bunch of villains who would have really meek old men kind of voices.
