After the climactic season finale, DC announces the release date for its much anticipated third season of the Harley Quinn animated show with a fresh new Teaser. The last time we were shown the first look with a voice-over and unfinished animation of this series was during the FanDome 2021 organized by DC. This time, we get a full-on chaotic and insane teaser presenting a glimpse of the mayhem that will be caused by the duo of Harley and Poison Ivy.
It’s Harlivy Time:
The new season 3 of Harley Quinn will center around Harley and Poison Ivy’s trip of a lifetime and will even weave a Romantic story around them and their motto of “Eat, Kill Bang!”. Owing to the problematic relationships both Harley and Poison Ivy had in the past, now the duo will try to find love in each other.
Season 3 will release on July 28th exclusively on HBO Max. It stars Kaley Cuoco and Lake Bell as the titular character and Poison Ivy. Besides the duo, the show also has King Shark and Clayface as the recurring characters. The teaser also shows the involvement of the infamous Court of Owls in the series.
The Teaser already sets the tone of a much seductive and raunchy journey with the relationship of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy playing a key aspect. In early 2020, The developers Schumacker and Justin Halpern described how this trip is important to both Harley and Ivy:
“That’s the big thing for us to chew on,” Halpern said at the time. “The thing we have discussed preliminarily is the idea that these two characters have had a lot of toxic relationships in their past. Although Ivy and Kite Man wasn’t toxic, it also wasn’t an equal relationship, you know? He loved her a lot more than she loved him.”
It can already be hoped that the show’s gonna be steamier and will portray a different kind of love story for sure.
Superheroes can’t have S*x?
Unlike the other studios, DC and Warner Media have far more instances of fan disappointments and coming under the fire. Last year in an anecdote by the Harley Quinn maker Halpern, it was revealed that the DC higher-ups were not letting them show superhero s*x in their series:
“They’re like, ‘Heroes don’t do that,'” said Halpern. “So we said, ‘Are you saying heroes are just selfish lovers?’ They were like, ‘No, it’s that we sell consumer toys for heroes. It’s hard to sell a toy if Batman is also going down on someone.'”
So according to DC, the world’s greatest detective wasn’t allowed to go down on Catwoman and to this, the most controversial Justice League director Zack Snyder posted a graphic image of Batman going down on Catwoman and captioned it as “Canon” to show his support for superhero romance:

Unfortunately, the media was taken down by Twitter and it’s no longer visible but the most interesting fact is Harley Quinn does slap DC hard on the face as from the teaser it is revealed that there will be that Batman going down moment in the series.
So it can be concluded that the 10 episodes long the Harley Quinn series will be bold and will surely surprise everyone with their story and content.
Harley Quinn season 3 will be exclusively available on HBO Max.
