While DC fans continue to wait for the return of big screen movies from the DC Extended Universe, content is coming in bunches from multiple outlets on the TV side of the world. Many new seasons of several DC shows were teased at both days of DC FanDome, and fans are voicing their excitement with each new release.

On HBO Max, fans are currently on the edge of their seats waiting for new releases like season 3 of Doom Patrol and the Snyder Cut of Justice League in 2021. Not all of DC’s content is enjoying this kind of hype though, as news has just broken about one series whose future is currently unknown...


According to a new release from The Hollywood Reporter, the process of renewal for Harley Quinn is still up in the air in regards to a third season for the animated show.

Things have stalled due to a shake-up in management after Bob Greenblatt and Kevin Reilly were pushed out and control of the streaming platform was given to HBO’s Casey Bloys.


With yet another major change at DC’s home of streaming services, it’s hard to say what exactly will happen in terms of a potential season third season of Harley Quinn. Sources say the fate of the show hinges on determination for a new budget, and there is no word on where things stand in that regard.

The Kaley Cuoco-led animated series has had a great deal of success in its first two seasons on HBO Max with fantastic reviews from fans and critics alike. Season 2 ended nearly three months ago and chatter is heightening daily on why the show hasn’t been renewed yet, so it will be interesting to find out if and when that happens. 

The first two seasons of Harley Quinn are currently available to stream on HBO Max.
