Gotham City needs to get ready for some mayhem as Max has given the greenlight to Harley Quinn season 5.
Beginning life as an exclusive for the DC Universe app, Harley Quinn eventually moved to Max where it’s fan base has grown, and critical acclaim has continued to thrive. Season 4 ended several weeks ago and fans had been waiting for word on another season, and it has finally arrived: Season 5 is a go.
“We’re thrilled that the news of Harley and Ivy’s continuing misadventures is finally out and we can stop telling people in secret,” executive producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey said in a statement. “We must have handed out at least three thousand NDAs by now. It was a big waste of paper.”
“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 vp original comedy and adult animation for 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 five.”
“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 five,” added Peter Girardi, executive vp alternative programming at Warner Bros. Animation.
No word yet on when Harley Quinn season 5 will debut.
