A Harley Quinn animated series has been ordered for the upcoming DC digital service
A Harley Quinn animated series is in the works for DC’s digital direct-to-consumer service, according to Deadline. The service has ordered 26 half-hour episodes for the Harley Quinn animated series, which is targeting adults. The show comes to us from Warner Bros. Animation and Powerless producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey.
The DC digital service already has the high-profile series Titans, starring Anna Diop, Lindsey Gort, Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly, as well as the revival of the animated series Young Justice. Harley Quinn has always been a fan-favorite character, created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, first appearing in Batman: The Animated Series. She was played by Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad, and she will reportedly be approached as the first choice to voice her in the Harley Quinn animated series.
The above pic is reportedly concept art and the series may end up with a different look when it finally airs. The Harley Quinn animated series will feature Poison Ivy and a number of familiar DC villains and heroes. The series will be written and executive produced by Halpern, Schumacker and Lorey and will focus on Harley after she finally ends things with her love/partner in crime the Joker. She attempts to become the “criminal Queenpin of Gotham City.”
The Harley Quinn animated series will be executive produced by Sam Register, President of Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. DC Super Hero Girls: Hero of the Year‘s Jennifer Coyle will produce with Halpern and Schumaker’s Ehsugadee Productions with Warner Bros. Animation.
