Harley Quinn is returning to save – or just cause anarchy – in Gotham City. Max has renewed the Harley Quinn animated series for a fifth season.
“Harley Quinn has raised the comedic crowbar with every new season. We’re excited to continue this partnership with Max and take our biggest swing yet for season five,” Warner Bros. Animation Executive Vice President of Alternative Programming Peter Girardi said in a statement.
Starring the voice talents of Kaley Cuoco as Harley Quinn, Lake Bell as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk as Clayface and Joker, Ron Funches as King Shark, and J.B. Smoove as Frank the Plant, Harley Quinn began with the antiheroine getting out from under Joker’s shadow to lead her own villain team. As the series progressed, Harley and Ivy started a romantic relationship, which survived season four’s storyline that put Harley as a hero in the Bat-Family, while Ivy became CEO of the Legion of Doom.
“The talented Harley Quinn team has once again succeeded in delivering a season that builds on everything that has come before while still feeling fresh and inventive,” Max and Adult Swim Executive Vice President of Original Comedy and Adult Animation Suzanna Makkos said. “They continue to provide hilarious, heartwarming, and deranged stories with our lovable group of DC misfits, and we couldn’t be more excited for the fans to see what they’ve accomplished in season five.”
The animated world of Harley Quinn is also expanding in 2024 with the spinoff, Kite Man: Hell Yeah. That series will follow the C-list villain, who is also Ivy’s ex-fiancé, as he embarks on his own adventures around – or above – Gotham. Matt Oberg, who voiced Kite Man on Harley Quinn, is returning for this new series.
The Harley Quinn ensemble voice cast also includes James Adomian as Bane, Diedrich Bader as Batman, Briana Cuoco as Batgirl, Christopher Meloni as Commissioner Gordon, Tisha Campbell as Tawny Young, and Tony Hale as Dr. Psycho.
