Even though the DC film world is still in disarray, DC animation is hitting on all cylinders. This includes Harley Quinn, who has dominated the past three seasons. The return of the popular adult cartoon series for its fourth season is scheduled to take place over the summer of this year, as was previously reported. Nevertheless, the return of Harley Quinn has now been given an official release date. The vulgar and bloody television show will hold the launch of its fourth season on Thursday, July 27, according to a report from TVLine. It has yet to be announced how the series will be broadcast. Still, if the previous seasons are any indication, new episodes of Harley Quinn will be released weekly.
When we left off, Harley Quinn and her criminal companions, the famed DC anti-hero, were investigating her newly branded romantic relationship with Poison Ivy. This brings us back to where we started. At the end of the season, Harley became a member of the Bat Family, while Ivy was planning to become the leader of the Legion of Doom. As the previous season came to a close with Bruce Wayne being incarcerated for tax evasion, Batgirl has hilariously assumed the role of leader of the Bat Family. Showrunner Justin Halpern stated that “things are so binary in the superhero world” when speaking with TVLine about the upcoming season and Harley’s new heroic role in the show. There’s a bad man and a good guy, and you get the impression that you have to choose between the two. There’s also the question, “Who in the world of superheroes is responsible for establishing all of this red tape?” Additionally, recurring characters like Batgirl will play a more significant part in the upcoming season. “But with Batgirl, we thought there was a lot of stuff to mine in the sense that she is, like, Gen Z and looks at the world in a certain way,” Halpern said when comparing Batgirl to Harley. “She is like, Gen Z and looks at the world in a certain way.” As a concluding statement, he would say:
“Harley is like a millennial because she has a particular perspective on the world. And without delving too further into the stereotypes where it’s just a very basic, “I’m a Millennial!” You belong to Generation Z!’ was one of our favorite jokes, and we enjoyed the idea that she and Batgirl would have to collaborate. How they evaluate what’s good and poor and how they communicate with one another struck us as being quite amusing and fascinating.
Since its premiere in 2019, Harley Quinn has consistently been regarded as one of the funniest and most entertaining series on television. This can be attributed to the show’s vibrant animation style, the UV blood-soaked nature of the action, or the witty script. At the same time, as it pays homage to the beloved character that Paul Dini and Bruce Timm created for Batman: The Animated Series, it also pokes fun at the wider DC Universe. No one is immune to the humorous fury of Harley, and there are very few references to DC’s backstory throughout the show. There is something for every DC fan to love in this smash-happy series, whether it be James Gunn directing an insensitive film about the Wayne murders or the brilliant way they make fun of Bane’s voice from The Dark Knight Rises. This series has something for everyone. How the series has adapted the friendship that eventually blossomed into a romantic relationship between Harley and Ivy is another aspect handled with remarkable care. Especially considering the wonderful holiday episode that the sitcom aired, “Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special.” DC’s animated portfolio will soon expand to include more shows, such as the Creature Commandos spin-off from the new DC Universe and a Harley Quinn spin-off called Kite Man. Nevertheless, this cheerful series has just a wacky fun element that will be difficult to equal in the future.
