The TV series, which takes a more mature look at Harley Quinn, and the wider Bat-universe, has become one of the highlights in the greater DC franchise. The forthcoming third season of Harley Quinn will consist of ten episodes. Also, it might premiere on HBO Max sometime in 2022.
Both 13-episode seasons thus far have been widely regarded for their humourous, slightly leftfield take on Gotham and its inhabitants, focussing more on character drama.
Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey have developed Harley Quinn. Since the previous two seasons were back-to-back, there came a long gap for production.

Kaley Cuoco stars as Harley Quinn. Lake Bell plays characters like Poison Ivy, Cheryl Alan Tudyk plays the role of The Joker, Clayface. Other than that, Tony Hale (Dr. Psycho), Ron Funches (King Shark), etc. noted actors are the casts of the Harley Quinn series.
Patrick Schumacker revealed during an interview that several new writers have been hired for the new season. Also, they have worked hard to diversify the staff more.
