Ahead of September 15’s Harley Quinn season three finale, HBO Max has finally confirmed that the popular DC adult-animated series has officially been renewed for a fourth season. Fans will be thrilled with this announcement, especially after the show’s future seemed to be uncertain following HBO Max’s recent controversial cancellations.
Harley Quinn season four will be featuring a new showrunner and executive producer in the form of Sarah Peters (Master of None), who will be taking over from Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker.

“We are ecstatic that HBO Max wants the story of Harley and Ivy to continue,” Halpern and Schumaker said in a statement. “And we are equally thrilled that this next season will be in great hands with Sarah Peters as our showrunner and Ceci Aranovich overseeing animation production, as they have both greatly influenced the show with their brilliance since the beginning.”
The series follows Harley Quinn‘s adventures, which began after her break-up with the Joker. The story centers around Harley, Poison Ivy, and other DC castoffs, including King Shark, Clayface, and Doctor Psycho, as they try to help each other earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. Season two ended with Harley and Ivy finally getting together, following Ivy’s failed wedding with Kite Man.
“The mayhem and madness continue in season three of this biting and uproarious adult animated comedy series,” reads the synopsis. “Wrapping up their ‘Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour,’ Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy return to Gotham as the new power couple of DC villainy. Along with their ragtag crew — King Shark, Clayface, Frank the Plant — ‘Harlivy’ strives to become the best version of themselves while also working towards Ivy’s long-desired plan of transforming Gotham into an Eden paradise.”
