HBO Max Renews ‘Harley Quinn’ for Season 4
The HBO Max Original adult-animated series Harley Quinn is a go for Season 4, promising viewers more mayhem and madness with Gotham’s power couple of DC villainy: Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. The announcement comes ahead of the September 15 Season 3 finale.
“Patrick Schumacker, Justin Halpern, and their incredible team of artists and writers have created something so explosively funny and original, and we are thrilled to continue this journey with them and the show’s legion of fans,” commented Billy Wee, Senior Vice President of Comedy & Animation, HBO Max. “It has been amazing to watch the show grow and evolve this season, and we could not ask for a more talented and dedicated team of collaborators.”
Consulting producer Sarah Peters (Workaholics, Master of None, Nathan For You), who has written on the series since Season 1, is being upped to executive producer and showrunner for the fourth season.
Just to catch up with season 3, Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco) and Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) wrap up their “Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour” and return to Gotham as the new power couple of DC villainy. Along with their ragtag crew – King Shark (Ron Funches), Clayface (Alan Tudyk), Frank the Plant (JB Smoove) – “Harlivy” strives to become the best version of themselves while also working towards Ivy’s long-desired plan of transforming Gotham into an Eden paradise.
The Season 3 voice cast includes Cuoco (Harley Quinn); Bell (Poison Ivy); Funches (King Shark); JB Smoove (Frank the Plant); Tudyk (Clayface/The Joker); Matt Oberg (Kite Man); Christopher Meloni (Commissioner Gordon); Andy Daly (Two-Face); Diedrich Bader (Batman/Bruce Wayne); James Adomian (Bane); Sanaa Lathan (Selina Kyle); Briana Cuoco (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon); and Harvey Guillen (Nightwing).
Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation, noted, “Three seasons down, and I can’t even begin to think about the new levels of chaos and trouble that Harley, Ivy, and the gang can get into with a fourth season. But I’m grateful to our partners at HBO Max for continuing this insane ride with us so we can all find out.”
“We are ecstatic that HBO Max wants the story of Harley and Ivy to continue,” added executive producers Halpern and Schumacker. “And we are equally thrilled that this next season will be in great hands with Sarah Peters as our showrunner and Ceci Aranovich overseeing animation production, as they have both greatly influenced the show with their brilliance since the beginning.”
