With Kaley Cuoco voicing the titular role, Harley Quinn has been renewed for a fifth season on Max.
Based on characters from DC, the Max Original adult-animated series was developed by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey, who serves as executive producer and showrunner.
“We’re thrilled that the news of Harley and Ivy’s continuing misadventures is finally out and we can stop telling people in secret,” executive Producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey said.
“We must have handed out at least three thousand NDAs by now. It was a big waste of paper,” the trio added.
Harley Quinn follows the titular character after her breakup with The Joker, voiced by Alan Tudyk. “With help from Poison Ivy and a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, Harley attempts to work her way into the Legion of Doom, before an identity crisis sends her on a larger quest to find her true place in Gotham City,” per its synopsis.
Lake Bell voices Poison Ivy, while a notable voice cast, including Christopher Meloni, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, Tony Hale, and others brings other notorious DC characters to life in adult-animated series.
The fourth season kicked off with a three-episode premiere in July 2023, with Harley Quinn Season 4 Episode 10, “Killer’s Block,” ending the season in September 2023.
The show, produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, Lorey Stories, and Yes, Norman Productions in association with Warner Bros. Animation, is all about Harley Quinn’s journey from girlfriend to leading lady.
“The talented Harley Quinn team has once again succeeded in delivering a season that builds on everything that has come before while still feeling fresh and inventive,” Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President, Original Comedy and Adult Animation, Max and Adult Swim, said.
They continue to provide hilarious, heartwarming, and deranged stories with our lovable group of DC misfits, and we couldn’t be more excited for the fans to see what they’ve accomplished in season 5,” Makkos added.
“Harley Quinn has raised the comedic crowbar with every new season. We’re excited to continue this partnership with Max and take our biggest swing yet for season 5,” Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation, said.
Kite Man: Hell Yeah! is a recently announced Harley Quinn spinoff series set to debut on Max in 2024.
“Kite Man and Golden Glider take their relationship to the next level by opening a bar in the shadow of Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom,” per its synopsis.
