Showrunner Patrick Schumacker provides an optimistic Harley Quinn season 3 update, confirming that the show’s audio mix is complete.
The HBO Max animated series, created and executive produced by Schumacker, Justin Halpern, and Dean Lorey, follows the titular character as she attempts to break up with the Joker and establish herself as a strong supervillain in Gotham to the Legion of Doom even while dealing with her feelings for the Clown Prince of Crime.
To construct her profitable criminal empire, Harley assembles a team that includes Poison Ivy, with whom she develops emotions, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, King Shark, and Sy Borgman.
Lake Bell plays Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk plays the Joker and Clayface, Tony Hale plays Doctor Psycho, Ron Funches plays King Shark, Jason Alexander plays King Shark, J.B. Smoove plays Frank the Plant, Diedrich Bader plays Batman, Andy Daly plays Two-Face, James Adomian plays Bane, and Christopher Meloni plays Jim Gordon.
The series, which debuted on DC Universe before transferring to HBO Max, has won critical acclaim for its animation, smart character development, dark comedy, and vocal performances from its cast in its first two seasons. Harley Quinn was renewed for season 3 following its move to HBO Max in mid-2020, and fans of the series have exciting news to look forward to after a two-year wait.
Patrick Schumacker, the showrunner, shared a promising Harley Quinn season 3 update on Twitter. The first audio mix for the upcoming season has been completed, according to the creator/executive producer, who exclaimed, “It’s happening!” Below is a link to Schumacker’s reveal post:

Schumacker’s Harley Quinn season 3 update brings just over a year after the showrunner stated that filming for the second chapter of the animated series had finally begun.
It also comes just a few months after the first peek at the new season was unveiled at the second DC FanDome event in October 2021, with animatics of Harley and Ivy starting on their “Eat, Bang, Kill” tour of Gotham including glances of fellow villains King Shark, Clayface, Dr. Psycho, and Bane.
The public’s attention was also drawn to Harley Quinn season 3 when it was reported that DC had removed an explicit sex scene between Batman & Catwoman owing to concerns about toy sales for the Dark Knight.
Given that audio mixing is usually done late in the post-production process, Schumacker’s announcement that the initial mix for Harley Quinn season 3 is finished is a positive indication of the show’s return.

Fellow showrunner Justin Halpern previously hinted that the series will return in late 2021 or early 2022, and based on Schumacker’s statement, the latter now appears more likely. In the interim, viewers can watch the first two distinct seasons of Harley Quinn on HBO Max right now.
