DC Universe unveils the Harley Quinn TV show trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, confirming the fall 2019 premiere. When DC Universe was announced as a subscription streaming service that would offer fans plenty of DC content, it was also revealed some of that content would be original programming. Thus far, DC Universe has debuted four (mostly) original properties: three live-action series in Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing, as well as the animated Young Justice: Outsiders - a continuation of the Cartoon Network Young Justice series. However, the subscription service has plenty more in the offing, including the Harley Quinn adult animated action-comedy series ordered by DC Universe in late 2017.
The Harley Quinn TV show stars Kaley Cuoco as the titular anti-heroine, who will be joined by a number of other DC Comics heroes and villains, including Harley's best friend Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) and Harley's ex-boyfriend Joker (Alan Tudyk). At New York Comic Con 2018, DC Universe unveiled the first Harley Quinn TV show teaser trailer, which featured Cuoco's Harley sitting in prison alongside Ivy. Now, DC Universe has revealed a much better look at the upcoming Harley Quinn TV show.
During the DC Universe panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, the streaming subscription service offered fans in attendance first looks as some of their upcoming properties, including Titans season 2 and Harley Quinn. After the teaser released last year, this Harley Quinn trailer gives fans a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming animated TV show. Watch the Harley Quinn TV show trailer below.
In addition to Cuoco, Bell and Tudyk, the Harley Quinn cast includes a number of actors lending their voices to plenty of other DC Comics characters, like Rahul Kohli as Scarecrow, Sanaa Lathan as Catwoman, Christopher Meloni as Commissioner James Gordon and Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho. The cast further includes Jason Alexander, J.B. Smoove, Ron Funches, Wanda Sykes, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash and Giancarlo Esposito, so it's clear Harley Quinn has plenty of talent in the recording booth.
However, Harley Quinn will also mark the first truly original animated DC Universe program - since Young Justice: Outsiders is more of a continuation than an original property - and it remains to be seen if it will be as well received as the service's live-action series. Titans, Doom Patrol and Swamp Thing have been popular (despite Swamp Thing being cancelled so abruptly early on in its run). But given what's been released so far for Harley Quinn, and the popularity of Outsiders among Young Justice fans, it certainly seems the anti-heroine's TV show could be another hit for DC Universe. Fans will just have to wait and see Harley Quinn for themselves when it premieres on DC Universe later this year.
