DC Universe is no more. After just two years, it will no longer be home to Warner Bros. TV shows. Instead it will become DC Universe Infinite, an online comic book reader akin to Marvel Unlimited. But fear not, because the service’s demise isn’t the end for its most popular shows. And that includes its beloved, foulmouthed villain whose learning to enjoy being single. The hit Harley Quinn animated series has been renewed for a third season, as the show is making the move to HBO Max.

HBO Max announced on Twitter that Harley Quinn is not only coming back for a third season, but it has a new home on the streaming platform. The series has been a hit with both fans and critics, and this renewal certainly qualifies as no-brainer. It’s also not surprising. Other successful DC Universe shows, including Doom Patrol and Titans, have already been renewed and are also making the move exclusively to HBO Max. The Warner Bros. streaming service will keep DC Universe alive in spirit.
Harley Quinn, which follows the adventures of the beloved antihero and her best friend Poison Ivy, first debuted on November 29, 2019. The show’s second season kicked off this past spring, on April 3, 2020. But in just a short time—and only 26 episodes—it has amassed quite a following. And that’s despite the fact its language, humor, and dark tone aren’t exactly geared towards children.
As for the new DC Universe Infinite service, it will launch in the U.S. early next year on January 21, 2021. It will include 24,000 comic books, digital-first comics, and exclusive online DC fan events. It will also be the digital home for recent comics, six months after they initially arrive in stores. The reader will start expanding around the globe next summer.
As for Harley Quinn it’s not clear when the show will return. But all that matters is knowing for sure that she will.
