HBO Max has been making plenty of choices about the future of its many projects over the last several weeks, including the cancellation of Batgirl and other DC projects that were scheduled to appear on the streamer. Fortunately, it appears that won’t be the case for one of the cherished DC programs as it has now been confirmed to have survived the ax.
Ahead of the third season finale on September 15th, HBO Max has renewed Harley Quinn for a fourth season. Sarah Peters, who has written for the program since its first season and is presently a consulting producer, will serve as new showrunner for the fourth season.
Peters takes over for Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker, who have both worked as showrunners from the first season and co-created the project with Dean Lorey. The reason for the duo’s departure as showrunners for the upcoming season was not given.
This renewal is welcome news for fans who have been waiting for information on the show’s future since the streamer axed some of its DC projects in recent weeks. We now have certainty that the show will continue. It’s also an indication that they’re pleased with the current season’s performance on the streamer and want to keep it running for the time being. The show will also have its own spin-off series centered on Kite Man, which will most likely debut next year.
Every Thursday, new episodes of Harley Quinn‘s third season premiere on HBO Max.
