A poster for the upcoming animated DC Universe series Harley Quinn confirms the show's fall 2019 premiere. The poster also details the bloody chaos in which Harley Quinn tends to find herself time and time again.
Making her grand debut in Batman: The Animated Series in 1992, Harley Quinn has proven to be as demented as she is oddly likable. Discovering her love of mayhem after meeting the Joker at Arkham Asylum (where she was employed), Harley Quinn turned to a life of crime, donning a new costume, a penchant for unpredictability, and a new partner-in-crime (Joker). She's been on plenty bumpy character journeys over the years, going from a classic villain to a complicated antihero, and an upcoming live-action interpretation with Margot Robbie will showcase the latter in Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). However, before that film releases in 2020, Harley Quinn will get the spotlight in her own animated TV series for DC Universe.
Kaley Cuoco, who voices Harley Quinn in the upcoming animated series, shared a poster for the show on her Instagram. In it, an animated Harley Quinn - with an aesthetic similar to 2016's Suicide Squad - is swinging a bat in the air. Naturally, blood is splattered everywhere; and in that blood is a release date, confirming the show's fall 2019 premiere date. Cuoco captioned the poster with: "Hehe get ready," followed by a pink and blue DNA strand. Check out the poster below:
Harley Quinn will be a web TV series aimed at a more mature audience, so fans of the character likely won't have to worry too much about creative restraints. Fans will also get to see Harley Quinn share the screen with her ally and friend, Poison Ivy (who will be voiced by Lake Bell), which will be a fitting setup to Birds of Prey, which features Harley Quinn teaming up with Black Canary, Huntress, and Renee Montoya.
For now, as anticipation builds for the series - along with other upcoming DC Universe projects, like Swamp Thing and Stargirl - there is plenty of DC material for fans to enjoy. The DC Universe streaming service has more than proved its worth, especially with shows like Doom Patrol and Titans - the latter of which is getting closer and closer to its second season, where it'll finally reveal Game of Thrones' Iain Glen as an older Bruce Wayne/Batman. Till then, though, there's still plenty to enjoy, and Harley Quinn will likely live up to the high bar DC has set for itself.
