DC Animated show ‘Harley Quinn’ has been renewed for a third season on HBO Max. The series was previously on the now discontinued DC Universe. The news comes as Warner Bros officially announced Friday that DC Universe will no longer be home to scripted original series and will instead transition to solely a comic book subscription service called DC Universe Infinite.
The show premiered on November 29, 2019 on DC Universe to critical success, with critics praising its animation, humour, dark tone and voice acting. The show’s second season premiered on April 3, 2020. The series follows Harley Quinn’s adventures after she breaks up with the Joker and her attempt to join the Legion of Doom, forming her own crew consisting of Poison Ivy, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, King Shark, and Sy Borgman. When she finally achieves this goal however, she inadvertently distances herself from her newfound friends and continues to face problems from the Joker, who refuses to accept the idea of Harley becoming a supervillain on her own. In the season one finale, the Joker manages to take over Gotham, only to be defeated by Harley and her crew. In a final act of retaliation, he destroys the entire city, resulting in the apparent deaths of both him and Batman.
