Showrunner Patrick Schumacker provides an optimistic Harley Quinn season 3 update, confirming that the show’s audio mix is complete.
The HBO Max animated series, created and executive produced by Schumacker, Justin Halpern, and Dean Lorey, follows the titular character as she attempts to break up with the Joker and establish herself as a powerful supervillain in Gotham to the Legion of Doom while still dealing with her feelings for the Clown Prince of Crime.
Harley Quinn Season 3 A Team Including Zahra Levy
In order to construct her own profitable criminal empire, Harley assembles a team that includes Poison Ivy, with whom she develops emotions, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, King Shark, and Sy Borgman.
Lake Bell as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk as the Joker and Clayface, Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho, Ron Funches as King Shark, Jason Alexander as King Shark, J.B. Smoove as Frank the Plant, Diedrich Bader as Batman, Andy Daly as Two-Face, James Adomian as Bane, and Christopher Meloni as Jim Gordon round out the cast of Harley Quinn.
The series, which debuted on DC Universe before transferring to HBO Max, has won critical acclaim for its animation, smart character development, dark comedy, and vocal performances from its cast in its first two seasons. Harley Quinn was renewed for season 3 following its move to HBO Max in mid-2020, and fans of the series have exciting news to look forward to after a two-year wait.
Patrick Schumacker, the showrunner, shared a promising Harley Quinn season 3 update on Twitter. The first audio mix for the new season has been completed, according to the creator/executive producer, who exclaimed, “It’s happening!” Below is a link to Schumacker’s reveal post:
Schumacker’s Harley Quinn season 3 update comes just over a year after the showrunner stated that filming for the second chapter of the animated series had finally begun.
It also comes just a few months after the first peek at the new season was revealed at the second DC FanDome event in October 2021, with animatics of Harley and Ivy starting on their “Eat, Bang, Kill” tour of Gotham and brief glances of fellow villains King Shark, Clayface, Dr. Psycho, and Bane.
The public’s attention was also drawn to Harley Quinn season 3 when it was reported that DC had removed an explicit sex scene between Batman and Catwoman owing to concerns about toy sales for the Dark Knight.
Given that audio mixing is usually done late in the post-production process, Schumacker’s announcement that the initial mix for Harley Quinn season 3 is finished is a positive indication for the show’s return.
Fellow showrunner Justin Halpern previously hinted that the series will return in late 2021 or early 2022, and based on Schumacker’s statement, the latter now appears more likely. In the interim, viewers can watch the first two seasons of Harley Quinn on HBO Max right now.
