Harley Quinn focuses on the infamous comic book character, Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco), who after her breakup with the Joker (Alan Tudyk), decides to set off on her own and make a name for herself in the villain community.
In season 2, Harley and her team of villains, including Poison Ivy (Lake Bell), Clayface (Alan Tudyk), King Shark (Ron Funches), and Dr. Psycho (Tony Hale), take on members of the Injustice League, including the likes of Mr. Freeze (Alfred Molina), The Riddler (Jim Rash), The Penguin (Wayne Knight), and Bane (James Adomian).
Harley and Ivy’s encounter with Bane results in the two sharing their first kiss, throwing a wrench in the relationship between Ivy and Kite Man (Matt Oberg). Season 2 culminates with the two riding off into the sunset together, leaving fans wondering what to expect in Harley Quinn season 3.
Will Become a Lover?
In an interview with Syfy, executive producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker revealed that Harley and Poison Ivy will be a couple if Harley Quinn season 3 is approved. When asked about the future of the two as a couple, Schumacker stated,
“Yes. Yeah, absolutely. And if we’re lucky enough to get a Season 3, and we truly don’t know yet, but if we are we’re not going to walk it back.
They’re a couple. Any stakes that we want to build into the season moving forward are not going to involve [the question of] “Will they be able to stay in a relationship?” They’re going to be a couple.”
Hopefully There Will Be Season 3
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy dabbled with romance before, but the explicitness of their romance in Harley Quinn is relatively new.
Previously, comics would only hint at the romantic love shared between the two, with the Bombshell comics, an elseworlds story, being one of the few exceptions. For their part, Harley Quinn‘s showrunners did tease Harley and Ivy would get together in season 2, but they also made sure to put in the narrative work that makes the reveal so welcomed by the show’s fans.
And regardless if Harley Quinn receives a season 3, Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan wants to add the Poison Ivy and Harley romance into the DCEU, so the couple seems destined to live on. So, what do you all think about this guys?
