With the recent announcement that the animated Harley Quinn series has been renewed for Season 3 over at HBO Max, the project's showrunners are teasing more goodies to come for avid followers of the show and the possibility of Harley and the gang crossing over to the movies.
Showrunners Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker got into detail about what fans can expect come next season and their plans of actually doing a full-length feature film. Schumacker told Deadline: "When we were waiting for a Season 3 pickup, we were kicking around ideas with the executives over at Warner Bros. Animation about that sort of thing (a movie)."
Talking about how different their overall approach will be for the next season, they continued: "I think in the third season, the general idea we've been talking about…And the room hasn't even started yet. These are just conversations between Dean Lorey, and myself, and Patrick. [But] the idea [is], when you've mostly been in toxic and bad relationships your whole life, how do you then be in a good one?" Halpern added. "How does the baggage that you bring from all these other relationships affect the relationship you're in that you really want to work?"
The show getting renewed for a third season only proves that fans are totally behind the series which will now be moving exclusively to HBO Max from its original home of DC Universe. I can totally see the show's appeal especially to diehard fans of the comics because Harley Quinn goes all-out with the fun and action and mainly in terms of Harley's "relationship" with fellow Gotham City femme fatale Poison Ivy. It's also quite different from the other DC animated shows that came before it, Batman: The Animated Series included. While I'm not saying Kaley Cuoco's take is better than the animated series Harley, (because let's be honest, topping Arleen Sorkin's iconic portrayal of Quinn in BTAS is a tough task to take on), it's definitely in a league of its own.
Harley Quinn's first two seasons are available for streaming on HBO Max.
