At one point, the Joker was the most well-known villain in Batman’s rogues gallery. While that may still be the case, in recent years it almost seems like Harley Quinn’s popularity has risen to match, and sometimes even surpass, that of The Clown Prince of Crime himself. Much of this can probably be attributed to Margot Robbie’s take on the character.
Despite his first project, suicide squad, being not so beloved, Margot’s performance stood out. She continued to act in Birds of prey and that of James Gunn The Suicide Squad redesign – with many more appearances no doubt in the works in the years to come.
Along with her live-action presence, the character also headlines a hit HBO Max adult animated comedy titled after her namesake. This time around, the character is played by Kaley Cuoco, and the story follows Harley as she tries to navigate the world of supervillains without her abusive ex, MJ.
The show was a hit with fans and has since completed two seasons. At this point, it’s sadly been nearly two years since a new episode was released. So when can audiences expect to be able to sit down for more of Quinn’s lively antics?
When will Harley Quinn Season 3 be released?
HBO Max’s Animation Showrunner and Executive Producer harley quinnot series, Patrick Schumacker, took to Twitter to tease when fans might see the show released for the world’s viewing pleasure.
In his Tweet, Patrick Schumacker said “he has no right to say it” what is the specific air date, but Schumacker tossed the not-so-subtle hint that he would drop “at the time of year that rhymes with “Schummer”, confirming that Harley Quinn Season 3 will premiere on HBO Max in summer 2022:
The more Harley Quinn the better
For those who love the world of Harley Quinn the next few years are going to be pretty nice.
While Kaley Cuoco’s show doesn’t seem to have an end in sight, What Happens is an additional spin-off series focusing on a supervillain bar bought by the infamous Kite Man. The project will likely sport the same quirky, violent, and raunchy humor of its flagship series – it will also make appearances from big names such as Lex Luthor and Bane.
Season 3 of the hit anime series has already promised to kick the boobies up a few notches. It recently emerged that Warner Bros. demanded the removal of a Batman oral sex scene for the upcoming season – yes, that’s a real sentence.
As for the live-action version of the character, it could be a second before Margot Robbie returns. While Warner Bros. undoubtedly has several projects around her character underway, the actress behind the role has revealed she needs a little break from playing her psychotic alter-ego.
Harley Quinn is currently available to stream on HBO Max, with the third season likely to hit the service in the “Schummer.”
