Comics are full of surprises. Last year. DC lovers were given the gift of more Harley…As in the announcement of a Harley Quinn adult ordinated animated series that will run twenty-six half-hour episodes. The installments have a particular adult theme.
Questions of the cast and characters almost immediately started swirling. The That Hashtag Show posted descriptions and potential outlines for the series.

The ongoing saga of Quinn is set to air DC’s streaming service.
Fans can look forward to seeing major mainstays in the DC universe: namely The Joker and Poison Ivy.

The new installment of our favorite loon will be headed by Patrick Schumacker, Dean Lorey, and Justin Halpern.The group previously collaborated on DC’s comedy Powerless.

The story will be loosely based and take inspiration from the current comics. We may see the story line continue where Harley has severed ties with the Joker. All this while hanging with Poison Ivy on the mean streets of Gotham. The character is now a far cry from a mere sidekick, as she has grown more independent over the years thanks to Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.

That Hashtag Show

 

“[THE JOKER] (40) Equal parts homicidal and charismatic, he’s been Harley’s longtime awful boyfriend, but when Harley breaks up with him, she vows to take his cherished number-one spot on the Most Wanted list. The Joker thinks of Harley as his creation and, as she grows in power, does everything he can to stop her. (SERIES REGULAR)”

“[DR. PAMELA ISLEY (AKA “POISON IVY”)] (LATE 20’s) Sarcastic and incredibly smart, Ivy is Harley’s best friend and now roommate. Very much a loner (she prefers plants over people), Ivy is sometimes the voice of reason but always a true friend to Harley. Ivy soon becomes her reluctant partner-in-crime. (SERIES REGULAR)”

[SY BORGMAN] (90’s) Once upon a time, Sy used to be a suave, super spy. Now in his 90s, he’s a wheelchair user with most of his body replaced by creaky 50s era bionic parts. Crotchety, difficult and longs to become relevant again. He’s also Harley and Ivy’s landlord, and insists they take him on their heists so can get back into the action – or else he won’t repair the plumbing. (SERIES REGULAR)”

“[DR. PSYCHO] (Mid-40s) An angry misogynist dwarf with telekinesis. He was a major villain until the “incident” ten years ago when in the midst of losing a battle against Wonder Woman he became frustrated and called her the C-word. In front of hundreds of camera phones. Even other villains were disgusted. Disgraced, the only one who’ll have him is Harley. A woman. He can’t stand it, but he’ll do anything to get back into the villain community. (SERIES REGULAR)”  

“[MALICE VUNDABAR] Early 20s, pretty, but over it. She’s an alien (but looks human) and her family is crazy rich and powerful, she’s interning with Harley’s gang for college credit. The only thing she cares about is her demonic shadow cat named Chessure that she carries around in her designer purse. It’s a friend and fashion item, and it destroys everything it sees. (SERIES REGULAR)”  

“[KING SHARK] (30) His lower half is human, but his upper half is the body of a great white shark. Even though he looks incredibly fierce, he’s a gentle soul who just wants to be normal. That is until he smells blood. And then he goes into a frenzy and literally eats everyone around him leaving death and carnage everywhere. Then feels bad about it. (SERIES REGULAR)”

“[CLAYFACE] (Mid 30’s) A large, humanoid mass of clay, Clayface was a struggling, trained actor until a terrible pottery accident turned him into the shape-shifting villain he is now. His aspirations for stardom and his ability to transform his appearance to look like anyone should help him land some roles but he’s such a terrible actor that the only work he can get is with Harley’s crew, pretending to be whoever they need him to help with a heist. He still holds out hope that he’ll land one of the many auditions he fruitlessly goes on. (SERIES REGULAR)” 

Although this is all exciting lets remember some of the list is still speculation. We as of publication still do not know if their roles will be part of the Harley Quinn series, or who will voice the characters. However, there is a hope to bring in Margot Robbie to voice the character in the new series. You may remember she gave a captivating performance as Quinn in Suicide Squad. Deadline,

While the series does not currently have a premiere/ release date, we will be watching for updates.
