Development[edit]

On November 20, 2017, it was announced that the then-unnamed DC Universe had ordered 26 episodes of Harley Quinn, a half-hour adult animated action-comedy series created and written by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey. Executive producers were set to include Halpern, Schumacker, Lorey, and Sam Register with Jennifer Coyle serving as a producer. Production companies involved in the series were slated to consist of Ehsugadee Productions and Warner Bros. Animation.[7]

In June 2018, it was announced that the series would premiere in 2019.[8] In October, it was further mapped as an October 2019 premiere.[9] It was also reported that Kaley Cuoco would also serve as an executive producer for the series through her production company Yes, Norman Productions.[10]

Casting[edit]

Alongside the series order announcement, it was reported that the producers of the series were expected to approach Margot Robbie, who portrays the character in the DC Extended Universe, to reprise the role.[7] Other characters expected to be featured in the series included the Joker, Poison Ivy, Sy Borgman, Doctor Psycho, Malice Vundabar, King Shark, and Clayface.[11][12][13]

On October 3, 2018, it was announced that Cuoco would voice Harley Quinn and Lake Bell would voice Poison Ivy. Additional voice actors in the series include Alan Tudyk as Joker,[4] Ron Funches, J. B. Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash,[2] Diedrich Bader as Batman (reprising his role from Batman: The Brave and the Bold),[3] Tony Hale,[2] and Christopher Meloni as James Gordon.[2][4] Shortly after, Rahul Kohli revealed he would voice Scarecrow in the series.[6]

Release[edit]

Harley Quinn has tentatively been scheduled by DC Universe to be released from mid-October 2019 through early 2020.[9] On October 3, 2018, ahead of the annual New York Comic Con, a teaser trailer featuring Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Batman was released.[14]
