Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service Max announced today that critically acclaimed adult-animated series Harley Quinn has been renewed for a fifth season.
With help from Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) and a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, Harley attempts to work her way into the Legion of Doom, before an identity crisis sends her on a larger quest to find her true place in Gotham City.
With appearances by DC’s most notorious characters and featuring a notable voice cast — including Christopher Meloni, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, Tony Hale, and others — Harley Quinn showcases the titular antiheroine’s killer journey from girlfriend to leading lady.
“The talented Harley Quinn team has once again succeeded in delivering a season that builds on everything that has come before while still feeling fresh and inventive,” said Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President, Original Comedy and Adult Animation, Max and Adult Swim.
“They continue to provide hilarious, heartwarming, and deranged stories with our lovable group of DC misfits, and we couldn’t be more excited for the fans to see what they’ve accomplished in season 5.”
Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Warner Bros. Animation, added: “Harley Quinn has raised the comedic crowbar with every new season. We’re excited to continue this partnership with Max and take our biggest swing yet for season 5.”
Executive Producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey said: “We’re thrilled that the news of Harley and Ivy’s continuing misadventures is finally out and we can stop telling people in secret. We must have handed out at least three thousand NDAs by now. It was a big waste of paper.”
Based on characters from DC, Harley Quinn is produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, Lorey Stories, and Yes, Norman Productions in association with Warner Bros. Animation. The series was developed by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey.
Dean Lorey serves as executive producer and showrunner. The executive producers are Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Kaley Cuoco, Sam Register, and Katie Rich. The co-executive producer is Chrissy Romero.
The supervising producers are Cecilia Aranovich Hamilton and Ian Hamilton, the producer is Susan Ward, the consulting producers are Jamiesen Borak and Leslie Schapira, and co-producer is Vidhya Iyer.
Max recently announced a new Harley Quinn animated spin-off series titled Kite Man: Hell Yeah! debuting in 2024, in which Kite Man and Golden Glider take their relationship to the next level by opening a bar in the shadow of Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom.
