NYCC 2019: Harley Quinn Animated Series To Debut In November On DC Universe

by Erik Amaya

As part of the ongoing happenings at DC Universe, the service announced Thursday at New York Comic Con that the long-awaited Harley Quinn animated series will debut November 29th.
The series, featuring the voice of Kaley Cuoco as Harley and Alan Tudyk as the Joker, was one of the first projects announced for the streaming service. But as animated productions take some time, it found itself as part of the the Year Two content. In fact, the series has been in the works so long, Cuoco was first announced as Harley’s voice at last year‘s NYCC. Other voices will include Lake Bell as Poison Ivy and Diedrich Bader as Batman. The premise sees Harley’s trying to become a solo criminal enterprise while the Gotham underworld still regards her the Joker’s girlfriend.
The premise has a certain striking similarities to next year’s Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).
Other DC Universe happenings in Year Two include a live action Stargirl series — set for a 2020 debut — and an anthology series called Bizarro World. The new program will focus on some of the companies strange characters like Ambush Bug.
A new series suggests a long term commitment to the service, but with the second season of Doom Patrol set to role out on both DC Universe and HBO Max, we still consider DC Universe’s survival a shaky proposition.
