The bigger the longshot, the better the payoff. With the DC Universe App, who would have thought that Doom Patrol and an animated Harley Quinn show would become their two most popular properties? Well, like her big brother Doom Patrol, Harley Quinn Season 3 is also going to HBOMax. Kind of makes you wonder why the DC Universe App is still a thing.
What Can We Expect in Season 3 of Harley Quinn?

Season 2 left us with Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn finally becoming a couple and saying that they love each other. It was a very Thelma and Louise moment. GCPD is chasing them, dozens of Gotham villains and heroes are duking it out all around them, but they’re just driving through the chaos like it’s not even happening. And for viewers and fans of Harley, this was something they wanted since day one. Poison Ivy almost marrying Kite Man was a betrayal! (Though, as Ivy says, he kind of grows on you).
For Harley Quinn Season 3, we’ll follow the new couple as they figure out their relationship. But not just their relationship either. In the penultimate Season 2 episode, Harley stated that she isn’t even sure if she’s a villain anymore. And while this might have been an epiphany to her, Batgirl saw it from the moment Harley began taking down villains like Two-Face, Penguin, and the Riddler.
Other Big Questions the Next Season Needs to Answer

Who will the big villain be? From all accounts, it looks like Dr. Psycho. At the end of Season 2, he denounced Harley Quinn and her team as a bunch of idiots, so expect him to continue his misogynistic quest for world power.
But the bigger question. The question they have to explore with deep nuance and several episodes…is Joker really a suburban step-dad now?
