It Seems Like ‘Harley Quinn’ Fans Have To Wait Longer for Season 3 News; DC FanDome Schedule Changed

Fans of DC had a lot to get ready for this summer. Even though everything is delayed, such as movie release dates and more, DC FanDome is coming up. It’s set to give viewers unprecedented access to a lot of news regarding their favorite comics, shows, and movies. 

However, now, DC split the event into two separate days, weeks apart. And while there will still be news and updates from the virtual convention, fans of DC’s shows have to wait longer. And this affects fans of DC’s popular adult animated show, Harley Quinn

DC FanDome is now split into two days, instead of a back-to-back 24 hours

In a press release sent out Aug. 19, DC revealed that with over 100 hours of programming crammed into 24 hours, they need another day to get it all done.

In order to super-serve the world’s finest fans, DC FanDome has been transformed into a two-part event: the eight-hour DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes show on Saturday, August 22, followed three weeks later by DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, a 24-hour, on-demand experience… on Saturday, September 12.

Fans can make a personalized schedule on their website, where the specific time slots for their favorite shows and movies are. Panels that are still happening on Aug. 22 include Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, The CW’sThe Flash, The Batman, and more. 

However the panels that were moved to Sept. 12 are Batwoman, Black Lightning, Lucifer, and Superman & Lois, among many others. 

‘Harley Quinn’’s main panel is now on Sept. 12

A major panel that was moved was Harley Quinn, the adult animated show that originally streamed on DC Universe. Many fans have hoped that this panel would bring good news regarding a Season 3, which hasn’t been announced yet. 

There is still an “Ask Harley Quinn” event scheduled for Aug. 22 at 6:15 p.m. CST, and again on Sept. 12 and 13. According to the description, it’s a 10-minute presentation where Harley Quinn answers “burning questions from DC’s biggest fans in her own tell it as it is, no-BS style.” So it’ll be a fun event for fans of the show, but don’t expect anything about a new season.

If fans are going to get that information, it’ll be during the panel, now marked for Sept. 12 and 13 at 12 p.m. CST. The guests scheduled to speak on that panel include Kaley Cuoco (Harley), Lake Bell (Poison Ivy), Ron Funches (King Shark), Matt Oberg (Kite Man) and Alan Tudyk (Joker and Clayface) along with executive producers Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Dean Lorey and supervising producer Jennifer Coyle. 

It’s only 20 minutes, but fans of Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy can look forward to the panel for many reasons, but also because the description reads, “#Harlivy Forever!” And the newest DC FanDome trailer says there will be “Huge announcements,” and Harley Quinn pops up on-screen. Now, is that just good marketing? Sure, but hopefully it means good news is ahead. 

The creators are still hopeful about a Season 3

Just like the fans, the creators and people involved with Harley Quinn are in the dark about another season. 

One of the writers and producers for the show, Dean Lorey, responded to Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight about a possible third season. 

“We’d love to make one!” Lorey tweeted. “We’re still waiting to hear something from HBO Max.”

He went on to write that they “have a lot more story to tell” and that the show was “one of the best experiences.”

And co-showrunner Pat Schumacker tweeted on Aug. 18 that the show is coming to Blu-ray, which is a good sign. 

“This is very exciting,” he wrote. “Also exciting they aren’t calling it the ‘complete series.’ Still holding out hope for a Season 3.”

Only time will tell if Season 3 or more is in the cards for Harley Quinn, and even more time now that the panel was moved.
