Kaley Cuoco has found her first major gig after the final season of The Big Bang Theory. The actress has just been confirmed to star and executive produce the new DC Universe series Harley Quinn.
The announcement teaser for the new animated series debuted at the New York Comic-Con. The awesome short features Cuoco's Harleen Quinzel announcing her new show. However, her best friend Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) isn't quite as optimistic about the series. Harley is undaunted, insisting the series will be better than Deadpool. Unfortunately, Batman (Diedrich Bader) pops up to warn them that "there's no fun in Arkham, Quinn." That brings Harley down for a bit but she instantly brightens up again when she sees the show's logo.
It's an awesome teaser that confirms that Cuoco is fully capable of playing the Joker's partner-in-crime. However, it is still unclear if the Clown Prince of Crime will make an appearance in the series. Nevertheless, everyone is looking forward to the new animated show although the air date has not yet been revealed. Stay tuned for more details in the future.
Harley Quinn also stars Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), J.B. Smoove (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Wanda Sykes (A Bad Moms Christmas), Christopher Meloni (Man of Steel), and Giancarlo Esposito (Maze Runner: The Death Cure).
Margot Robbie was initially expected to provide the voice of the titular character after she portrayed Harley in Suicide Squad. However, the producers may have decided to take a different direction with the series. Robbie is still set to portray Harley in the DC Extended Universe flicks Birds of Prey and Suicide Squad 2.
Cuoco still appears as Penny in The Big Bang Theory Season 12, which is currently airing on CBS. Harley Quinn is expected to premiere on DC Universe sometime in 2019.
