Harlivy kissing in Harley Quinn s3

Harlivy Is Upon Us: ‘Harley Quinn’ Returns This Summer!

More Harley Quinn? YES.

The MCU may be popular and have their ultra fans in a chokehold, but do they have Harlivy? No, they do not. In fact, with minimal exceptions, the MCU hasn’t been great with explicit queer representation in general. Harley Quinn gives the fans what we want in terms of chaotic violence, DC lore, humorous moments—oh, and Harlivy. It just shows what including queer writers in a writers room can do for a show’s representation.

In season 3 we saw Harley (voiced by Kaley Cuoco) realize she’s not really a villain anymore—at least not at this point in time. And her relationship with Ivy (Lake Bell) wasn’t left in shambles over that fact. Harley actually joined the Bat team and we’ll see how that pans out in season 4. Here’s everything we know about the new season of Harley Quinn.

UPDATE: Max just dropped the season 4 trailer at San Diego Comic-Con, let’s take a look!

Does Harley Quinn season 4 have a release date?

There is a lot of uncertainty about when shows will return (or if they will) as a result of the writers strike. But Harley Quinn season 4 isn’t affected by what’s going on right now, and the next installment is set to premiere on July 27, 2023, on Max (née HBO Max).

What’s the plot of Harley Quinn season 4?

The plot will likely follow Harley figuring out who she is as a person. Rather than being a force of chaos with loosely villainous intentions, she’s now working with the Bat fam. What we are guaranteed is a lot of blood, violence, queer-as-hell moments, and probably more domestic Joker scenes.

Which Harley Quinn characters will be returning?

Kaley Cuoco and Lake Bell will most certainly be reprising their respective voice roles as Harley and Ivy. As for the rest of the cast, we can expect to see the following return:

  • Alan Tudyk as Joker (and other characters)
  • Ron Funches as King Shark
  • Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho (and other characters)

There will obviously be more in terms of guest appearances and supporting characters, but they haven’t been made public yet. You’ll have to tune in to see exactly who else will show up in Harley Quinn season 4.
