Warner Bros. has brough a Harley Quinn animated series to the DC Universe streaming service. Harley’s star continues to rise as a character, and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was a major factor in the success of the Suicide Squad movie. The Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco will voice Harley in the new series.

Harley Quinn is, of course, perfect for animation. She made her debut on Batman: The Animated Series, and her antics on the page and screen are akin to a supervillainous Bugs Bunny at times. The animated series comes from the executive producers behind NBC’s short-lived DC superhero comedy, Powerless, Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey.

Harley Quinn Review

Getting to truly see Harley letting loose is a total joy and feels far more fitting than her often PG-13 representations. This is a full throttle, turn it up to 11, no-holds-barred version of the character and it honestly feels exciting—not only because it’s so crass, rude, and ridiculous, but also because it’s fun.”

Harley Quinn Cast

Here’s the official synopsis and voice cast:

The adult animated comedy series follows Harley’s adventures, where alongside ragtag crew of DC castoffs, she tries to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. The strong voice cast for Harley Quinn also includes comedic talents such as Lake Bell (In a World…Wet Hot American Summer series, Childrens Hospital), Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Ron Funches (Powerless), JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Wanda Sykes (Black-ish), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries), Diedrich Bader (Veep), Tony Hale (Arrested DevelopmentVeep), Chris Meloni (Happy!Law & Order: Special Victims Unit).

It was revealed during Preview Night at SDCC 2019 (via Comics Beat) that both Clayface and the Joker will be voiced by Tudyk as well. Alexander lends his voice to Syd Borgman, “an octogenarian cyborg”; Hale is Doctor Psycho; Funches is King Shark; Sykes is Queen of Fables; Smoove voices Ivy’s “chill, wise-cracking houseplant”; SpongeBob himself, Tom Kenny, voices Clayface’s severed arm…this show is nuts.
