The DC Comics universe may be in a time of upheaval, but one thing is staying constant: The delightfully foul-mouthed, loving, chaotic, disastrous world of the animated Harley Quinn series on Max. The streamer has announced that Harley—and, of course, her beloved Ivy—will return to screens for a fifth season.
And it’s a damn good thing, too, because it would have been really weird if the Harley spinoff Kite Man: Hell Yeah appeared on its own. (Kite Man is fine. Fine! But Harley Quinn walked—strutted, terrorized—so Kite Man could fly.) That show is set to debut in 2024, but there’s no word yet on when Harley‘s fifth season will arrive.
When it does, though, we’ll be there with bells on. For four seasons, the series has given us a surprisingly perfect Harley voiced by Kaley Cuoco; the driest, most excellent Ivy (Lake Bell), and a whole team of misfits played by an outstanding cast of actors: Alan Tudyk as the Joker, Ron Funches as King Shark, Diedrich Bader as Batman, Harvey Guillen as Nightwing, Sanaa Lathan as Selina Kyle, and James Adomian as a bizarrely lovable Bane.
In the fourth season, tensions arose in the Harlivy relationship over their differing priorities: Harley started teaming up with Bat-folk, while Ivy became CEO of the Legion of Doom. But, because under all the wacky hijinks and dramatic evil plans they are actually semi-functional adults, they got it together by the end of the season.
Harley Quinn is now streaming on Max.
