The breakout smash hit of the DC Universe streaming service, Harley Quinn The Animated Series, has made the jump to HBO MAX and picked up for a third season. The series which is very mature and very bloody found a cult audience while poking fun at itself and the DC Universe as a whole.
The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco took the role and ran with it. She didn’t try and do a Tara Strong impersonation like most actresses do who take on the role, she made the character her own and dove head first into the insanity.
The show has received strong reviews for its first two seasons, which recently became available on HBO Max. Along with Cuoco, the show also features the voices of Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, Tony Hale, Jason Alexander, and J.B. Smoove. The series was developed by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey, who also serve as executive producers along with Cuoco.
HBO Max will now be the home for all DCU series like “Young Justice” Seasons 1-4, “Titans” Seasons 1-3, “Doom Patrol” Seasons 1-3, and “Stargirl” Season 1.
The news that DCU is moving out of original shows hardly comes as a surprise, as parent company WarnerMedia began moving shows like “Doom Patrol” over to HBO Max as early as last year. In addition, “Stargirl” began airing on broadcast network The CW at the same time it started streaming on DCU. Season 2 of that show will now air solely on CW.
As previously reported, DC Universe will transition to a comics only streaming service while new and original DC programming will now air on HBO MAX.
