'Harley Quinn' Animated Series Coming To DC Comic's Digital Service

'Harley Quinn' Animated Series Coming To DC Comic's Digital Service

And though her popularity has never waned, it can be said it shot into the stratosphere with major roles in the Batman: Arkham video game series and Margot Robbie's stellar performance being one of the few positives of last year's Suicide Squad movie. Warner Bros. Animation has ordered 26 episodes of the half-hour animated series Harley Quinn, which comes from Powerless team Justin Halpern & Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey.

The show will see Harley as she has finally broken things off with her on-again, off-again significant other, the Joker as she sets out to establish herself as the criminal Queenpin of Gotham City. The report notes that Poison Ivy and other popular DC characters, villains and heroes alike, are expected to pop up in the series.

The Harley Quinn animated series would join a live-action Titans series, as well as the fan-favorite animated show Young Justice, as exclusive offerings from DC's upcoming streaming service. Of course, that's only a few hours of programming; they'll hopefully have a good chunk of DC's massive catalog of movies and TV shows on there along with some awesome new original programming. The character was first created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini for Batman: The Animated Series in the 1990s as an offbeat henchman for the Joker, before becoming his signature lady love, spawning her own line of comics, and ultimately becoming a key figure in the DC Universe.
