Rejoice Harley Quinn fans! The Max hit series has been renewed for a fifth season.
For the last three years, comic book fans have immersed themselves in the anti-hero’s violent yet hilarious adventures.
In addition to its comical storylines, the animated series has been praised for establishing Harley (Haley Cuoco) and Ivy’s (Lake Bell) popular romance.
After a series of “will they won’t they” moments, the pair cemented their romantic relationship in the season two finale.
Fortunately for fans, Harley and Ivy’s comical adventures on the popular streamer show no signs of slowing down.
On 16 November, Max announced that the two queer icons would be returning to our screens for a fifth season – two months after the action-packed season four finale.
In a statement, executive producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey expressed their excitement about the renewal news.
“We’re thrilled that the news of Harley and Ivy’s continuing misadventures is finally out and we can stop telling people in secret,” they said, per The Hollywood Reporter.
“We must have handed out at least three hundred thousand NDAs by now. It was a big waste of paper.”
Suzanna Makkos, VP of Original Comedy and Adult Animation for Max and Adult Swim, and Peter Girardi – Executive VP of alternative programming at Warner Bros Animation – echoed similar sentiments in their own statements.

“The talented Harley Quinn teams has once again succeeded in delivering a season that builds on everything that has come before while still feeling fresh and inventive,” Makkos said.
“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 five.”
Girardi 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 five.”
Shortly after announcing the news, fans flocked to social media to celebrate Harley Quinn’s upcoming season.
One viewer wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter): “HARLEY QUINN SEASON 5!! LET’S GO!!”
Another fan posted: “Hands DOWN one of the best things the DCU has ever done.”
During the fourth season of Harley Quinn, the titular character navigates her new role as a crime-fighting hero for the Bat Family, while her girlfriend Ivy establishes herself as the new leader of the Legion of Doom.
