SynopsisEdit

Harley Quinn follows Harley's adventures after she breaks up with the Joker and strikes out on her own in this new, adult animated comedy. With the help of Poison Ivy and a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, Harley tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. [2]

DevelopmentEdit

In November 2017, it was announced that Warner Bros' DC-branded digital service ordered 26 half-hour episodes of Harley Quinn. The series was being developed by Justin Halpern, Patrick Shumacker, and Dean Lorey, who served as executive producers on DC's Powerless. Harley Quinn was the third series to be greenlit by the DC digital service, following Titans and Young Justice: Outsiders. It was rumored that Margot Robbie, who portrayed Harley Quinn in the 2016 live action film Suicide Squad, will be approached to voice the character. [1]

In February 2018, That Hashtag Show revealed the cast of characters set to appear in Harley Quinn. [3] An official logo for the series was unveiled when DC's digital service was announced as "DC Universe" in May. [4] In June, the official synopsis and release date for Harley Quinn was confirmed. [2]

On October 3, 2018, Warner Bros. Animation unveiled a first look at Harley Quinn at New York Comic Con. Kaley Cuoco was announced as the voice actress for the titular character. She will also serve as an executive producer through her Yes, Normans production banner. Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Diedrich Bader, Tony Hale and Chris Meloni were cast in undisclosed roles.

CharactersEdit

Series regularsEdit

  • Kaley Cuoco as Harley Quinn [5]
  • The Joker: 40s. Equal parts homicidal and charismatic, he's been Harley's longtime awful boyfriend, but when Harley breaks up with him, she vows to take his cherished number-one spot on the Most Wanted list. The Joker thinks of Harley as his creation and, as she grows in power, does everything he can to stop her. [3]
  • Dr. Pamela Isley/Poison Ivy: Late 20's. Sarcastic and incredibly smart, Ivy is Harley’s best friend and now roommate. Very much a loner (she prefers plants over people), Ivy is sometimes the voice of reason but always a true friend to Harley. Ivy soon becomes her reluctant partner-in-crime. [3]
  • Sy Borgman: 90's. Once upon a time, Sy used to be a suave, super spy. Now in his 90s, he's a wheelchair user with most of his body replaced by creaky 50s era bionic parts. Crotchety, difficult and longs to become relevant again. He's also Harley and Ivy's landlord, and insists he take them on their heists so he can get back into the action - or else he won't repair the plumbing. [3]
  • Dr. Psycho: Mid-40s. An angry misogynistic dwarf with telekinesis. He was a major villain until the "incident" ten years ago when in the midst of losing a battle against Wonder Woman he became frustrated and called her the C-word. In front of hundreds of camera phones. Even other villains were disgusted. Disgraced, the only one who'll have him is Harley. A woman. He can't stand it, but he'll do anything to get back into the villain community. [3]
  • Malice Vundabar: Early 20s, pretty, but over it. She's an alien (but looks human) and her family is crazy rich and powerful, she's interning with Harley's gang for college credit. The only thing she cares about is her demonic shadow cat named Chessure that she carries around in her designer purse. It's a friend and fashion item and it destroys everything it sees. [3]
  • King Shark: 30. His lower half is human, but his upper half is the body of a great white shark. Even though he looks incredibly fierce, he's a gentle soul who just wants to be normal. That is, until he smells blood and then he goes into a frenzy and literally eats everyone around him leaving death and carnage everywhere. Then feels bad about it. [3]
  • Clayface: Mid 30's. A large, humanoid mass of clay, Clayface was a struggling, trained actor until a terrible pottery accident turned him into the shapeshifting villain he is now. His aspirations for stardom and his ability to transform his appearance to look like anyone should help him land some roles but he's such a terrible actor that the only work he can get is with Harley's crew, pretending to be whoever they need him to be to help with a heist. He still holds out hope that he'll land one of the many auditions he fruitlessly goes on. [3]
