Max Renews ‘Harley Quinn’ for Season 5

The critically acclaimed Max Original adult-animated comedy promises a new season of mayhem and madness; series spinoff ‘Kite Man: Hell Yeah!’ set to premiere in 2024.  

Max has renewed its critically acclaimed Max Original adult-animated series Harley Quinn for a fifth season because, face it – fans just can’t get enough mayhem and madness. Unfortunately, the release date was not announced.

Also recently announced by Max is the Harley Quinn series spinoff, Kite Man: Hell Yeah! (originally called Noonan’s) debuting in 2024, in which Kite Man and Golden Glider take their relationship to the next level by opening a bar in the shadow of Lex Luthor’s Legion of Doom. I’m detecting more mayhem and madness coming your way!

Just to review, in Season 4, Harley Quinn (voiced by executive producer Kaley Cuoco) strikes out on her own following her breakup with The Joker (Alan Tudyk). With help from Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) and a ragtag crew of DC castoffs, Harley attempts to work her way into the Legion of Doom before an identity crisis sends her on a larger quest to find her true place in Gotham City. With appearances by DC’s most notorious characters and featuring a notable voice cast – including Christopher Meloni, Ron Funches, JB Smoove, and Tony Hale – Harley Quinn showcases the titular antiheroine’s killer journey from girlfriend to leading lady.

Suzanna Makkos, executive vice president Original Comedy and Adult Animation, Max, and Adult Swim, commented, “The talented Harley Quinn team has once again succeeded in delivering a season that builds on everything that has come before while still feeling fresh and inventive. They continue to provide hilarious, heartwarming, and deranged stories with our lovable group of DC misfits, and we couldn’t be more excited for the fans to see what they’ve accomplished in Season 5.”

Peter Girardi, executive vice president, Alternative Programming Warner Bros. Animation, added, "Harley Quinn has raised the comedic crowbar with every new season. We’re excited to continue this partnership with Max and take our biggest swing yet for season 5."

Executive Producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, and Dean Lorey shared, “We’re thrilled that the news of Harley and Ivy’s continuing misadventures is finally out, and we can stop telling people in secret. We must have handed out at least three thousand NDAs by now. It was a big waste of paper.”

Based on characters from DC, Harley Quinn is produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur Productions, Lorey Stories, and Yes, Norman Productions in association with Warner Bros. Animation. The series was developed by Halpern, Schumacker, and Lorey, with Lorey serving as executive producer and showrunner. Halpern, Patrick, Cuoco, Sam Register, and Katie Rich serve as executive producers, with Chrissy Romero as co-executive producer. Supervising producers are Cecilia Aranovich Hamilton and Ian Hamilton. Susan Ward produces with co-producer Vidhya Iyer. Jamiesen Borak and Leslie are consulting producers.
