Harley Quinn renewed for season 3 at HBO Max as DC Universe is downgraded

September 18th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Bad news for subscribers to DC Universe streaming service today as it’s been announced that the service is changing to a comic-only platform.

This means that all the content on it at the minute such as Titans and Doom Patrol will find their new home on HBO Max with DC Universe being the place to go to find those iconic pld DC issues but not to watch original content.

However, there’s good news for fans of the Harley Quinn animated show – of which I count myself as one – as it has officially been renewed for a third season and moved to HBO Max too.

Harley Quinn, from showrunners Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker, has picked up steam since its first two seasons arrived on HBO Max. Sources say the renewal, which came early Thursday, followed a round of negotiations that hinged on a new budget for the series. That process had been stalled by the major executive shake-up at the streamer that saw senior leaders Bob Greenblatt and Kevin Reilly pushed out and oversight of the platform given to HBO’s Casey Bloys. 

Honestly, while I am sorry for subscribers to DC Universe, I am delighted that Harley Quinn will be returning because, honestly, it was such a breath of fresh air for the fans.

What say you all? Are you fans of animated Harley? Let me know, guys…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
