With Harley Quinn season 3 officially in the works, fans are curious to see which new characters are joining the series’ cast for its first year as an HBO Max exclusive. The show often features an impressive cast of vocal performers, even recruiting big names like Alfred Molina, Wanda Sykes, and Giancarlo Esposito to play recurring or guest roles. Now, it looks like the producers have added another recognizable face to join their ranks. Showrunner Patrick Schumacker has confirmed that Sam Richardson will have a role in Harley Quinn’s new season.
Schumacker made the announcement while replying to a story about Richardson wanting to play Beast in a new X-Men movie for Marvel Studios. In addition to backing this idea, Schumacker also let slip that Richardson will lend his voice to the next season of Harley Quinn. Unfortunately, he wouldn’t reveal which character he’s playing. You can read what Schumacker had to say below.
I am extremely excited for this possibility and equally if not more extremely excited for the reality of @SamRichardson showing up as [redacted] in @dcharleyquinn season 3! https://t.co/2iMehg7aG0
