What is Harley Quinn?
Harley Quinn is an adult animated television series based on the DC Comics character of the same name created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm. It is written and executive produced by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey.
The series follows the misadventures of Harley Quinn and her best friend/partner-in-crime Poison Ivy after leaving her boyfriend, the Joker.
Harley Quinn Season 3 Production Status
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Halpern stated that season 3 will explore Harley’s reaction to a half-healthy relationship with Poison Ivy. Season 3 will also be focusing more on Poison Ivy’s backstory as the previous two seasons were mainly focused on Harley Quinn.
Schumacker stated in an interview with wordballoon that new LGBTQ+ writers have been hired because of the direction the series will be going in, following the season 2 finale. Additionally, it has also become a priority to diversify the writing staff for season 3. Schumacker also revealed that Dean Lorey would no longer be returning as a showrunner for season 3. Lorey will be replaced by new co-showrunners Chrissy Pietrosh and Jessica Goldstein.
In June of 2020, Schumacker tweeted out that he’d love to start season 3 of Harley Quinn off with a Zoom meeting where the GCPD is being berated by the city of Gotham for their ineptitude. You can view the original tweet below:
Well, I think Harley Season 3* will open with Gothamites on a Zoom screaming obscenities at Commissioner Gordon and his fellow cops.— Patrick Schumacker? (@PMSchumacker) June 3, 2020
*If we get a season 3.
While talking to Showbiz CheatSheet, composer Jefferson Friedman revealed that a musical episode is planned for season 3 of Harley Quinn.
In an interview with Deadline, Halpern stated the following about season 3:
[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? How does the baggage that you bring from all these other relationships affect the relationship you’re in that you really want to work?
