Harley Quinn Showrunners Discuss Third Season
"Harley Quinn" showrunners Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern recently spoke to about their upcoming third season renewal, which will now stream on HBO Max. They gave some insight into what will take place for the new season.
"I definitely think we are going to see Gordon grapple with his, how should I say it, his low approval in Gotham city, and the low approval of the police department in Gotham city. I think we're going to see... we're going to dive a little more into Ivy's life and then history. Origins. I think we're going to do that. I think those are really the only two things we've really kind of hit on so far in our preliminary discussions that were like, 'Yes, definitely want to do those things'", said Halpern.
He went on to say, "I know we don't want to do a 'Are they going to break up, or are they not going to break up?' thing. I don't think we want this to be the stakes of the season. I think we want to see... I mean, there'll obviously be conflict and tensions between the two of them when certain things go wrong. But I don't think we want that to be... we spent two years playing that, or two seasons, I don't think we want to do that for a third season. So that's what we don't want to do."
Schumaker commented about an announcement for a release date, saying, "We don't know all the details of them, but we know it's been an ongoing conversation. It's been very difficult to be vague online while also being optimistic. Because there's a ton of people out there that contact us on the regular, just wanting to know like, 'Is there going to be season three?' and all we can kind of say up until now is, 'Keep the faith that we feel pretty good about it,' which was the truth, but we never... up until [Wednesday], the deal was not done. But I think what Justin is saying it's probably at the earliest late 2021."
