DC Comic fans will be excited to know that the Harley Quinn animated series is in works already. Just after a few months of the launch announcement, the descriptions of the main characters of the television show have been revealed. It gives a good glimpse at what to expect when the show hits the small screen.
The series will revolve around Joker’s love interest also known as Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel. It will follow Harley Quinn’s struggles and adventures to becoming the supervillain that she grows to become.
The character rose to prominence among the DC fans after Margot Robbie debut of the character in Suicide Squad. The series will be written and executive produced by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey. It is said that the show makers are hoping Margot Robbie will return to voice Harley Quinn for the animated series.
Meanwhile, That Hashtag Show have obtained the details for various characters of the series. Besides Harley Quinn, the show is set to introducing Joker, Poison Ivy, Sy Borgman, Dr. Psycho, Malice Vundabar, King Shark, and Clay Face. The descriptions for the aforementioned characters is below.
“[THE JOKER] (40) Equal parts homicidal and charismatic, he’s been Harley’s longtime awful boyfriend, but when Harley breaks up with him, she vows to take his cherished number-one spot on the Most Wanted list. The Joker thinks of Harley as his creation and, as she grows in power, does everything he can to stop her. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[DR. PAMELA ISLEY (AKA “POISON IVY”)] (LATE 20’s) Sarcastic and incredibly smart, Ivy is Harley’s best friend and now roommate. Very much a loner (she prefers plants over people), Ivy is sometimes the voice of reason but always a true friend to Harley. Ivy soon becomes her reluctant partner-in-crime. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[SY BORGMAN] (90’s) Once upon a time, Sy used to be a suave, super spy. Now in his 90s, he’s a wheelchair user with most of his body replaced by creaky 50s era bionic parts. Crotchety, difficult and longs to become relevant again. He’s also Harley and Ivy’s landlord, and insists they take him on their heists so can get back into the action – or else he won’t repair the plumbing. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[DR. PSYCHO](Mid-40s) An angry misogynist dwarf with telekinesis. He was a major villain until the “incident” ten years ago when in the midst of losing a battle against Wonder Woman he became frustrated and called her the C-word. In front of hundreds of camera phones. Even other villains were disgusted. Disgraced, the only one who’ll have him is Harley. A woman. He can’t stand it, but he’ll do anything to get back into the villain community. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[MALICE VUNDABAR] Early 20s, pretty, but over it. She’s an alien (but looks human) and her family is crazy rich and powerful, she’s interning with Harley’s gang for college credit. The only thing she cares about is her demonic shadow cat named Chessure that she carries around in her designer purse. It’s a friend and fashion item and it destroys everything it sees. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[KING SHARK](30) His lower half is human, but his upper half is the body of a great white shark. Even though he looks incredibly fierce, he’s a gentle soul who just wants to be normal. That is, until he smells blood. And then he goes into a frenzy and literally eats everyone around him leaving death and carnage everywhere. Then feels bad about it. (SERIES REGULAR)”
“[CLAYFACE](Mid 30’s) A large, humanoid mass of clay, Clayface was a struggling, trained actor until a terrible pottery accident turned him into the shapeshifting villain he is now. His aspirations for stardom and his ability to transform his appearance to look like anyone should help him land some roles but he’s such a terrible actor that the only work he can get is with Harley’s crew, pretending to be whoever they need him to be help with a heist. He still holds out hope that he’ll land one of the many auditions he fruitlessly goes on. (SERIES REGULAR)”
Usually, guessing character’s identity from their breakdown description are taken with a grain of salt since it is possible to go wrong. but in this case, the showrunner of the animated series has confirmed the breakdown is accurate.
Showrunner Patrick Schumacker tweeted the exclusive story stating that it is accurate. Fans can check it out below.
The voice cast, the title and the premiere date for the Harley Quinn animated series are yet to be decided. In other details, all we know is that the Season 1 will consist twenty-six half-hour episodes.
