Warner Bros' forthcoming DC Entertainment-branded streamer has ordered its third show, an animated comedy aimed at adults based on comic book character Harley Quinn.
Harley has had a huge resurgence since Margot Robbie played the famous villainess in 2016's Suicide Squad.
The show is from Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker and Dean Lorey (Powerless), with Warner Bros Animation producing.
It's fair to say that Harley Quinn has become one of DC's most popular characters in recent years, thanks to her most solo comic series and the Suicide Squad film.
The Harley Quinn animated series would join a live-action Titans series, as well as the fan-favorite animated show Young Justice, as exclusive offerings from DC's upcoming streaming service.

The Davide Leone & Partners Investment Company Llp holds 909,698 shares with $78.78 million value, down from 947,498 last quarter. In other news, insider Alexandre Dayon sold 124,331 shares of the stock in a transaction that occurred on Friday, October 20th.
The acclaimed writer and producer created the character with Bruce Timm, and introduced her on the 1992 episode of Batman: The Animated Series "Joker's Favor".
When Harley Quinn returns to television in her own animated series, it will be without her co-creator Paul Dini. It sounds much less problematic than the "romance" live-action movie about Harley and the Joker, and there's something promising about the idea of anarchic, enthusiastic Harley trying to run a criminal enterprise-an endeavor which involves a lot of boring work, like planning and strategizing, that she might struggle with. Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series president Sam Register also executive produces.
That said, if this whole series is just Poison Ivy and Harley palling around together, and DC tries to totally skip over their romance, I'll be annoyed as hell.
Are you guys excited for a Harley Quinn animated series? It will exclusively be on DC's streaming service that is set to launch next year.
