In November 2017, it was announced that Warner Bros' DC-branded digital service ordered 26 half-hour episodes of the series. It was being developed by Justin Halpern, Patrick Shumacker, and Dean Lorey, who served as executive producers on NBC's DC series Powerless. Harley Quinn was the third series to be greenlit by the DC digital service, following Titans and Young Justice: Outsiders. It was rumored that Margot Robbie, who portrayed Harley Quinn in the 2016 live action film Suicide Squad, would be approached to voice the character.[10]

Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Diedrich Bader, Tony Hale and Christopher Meloni cast in undisclosed roles.[3] It was later confirmed that Bell, Tudyk, Bader and Meloni would be voicing Poison Ivy, the Joker, Batman, and Jim Gordon, respectively.[5][6][7] On October 11, 2018, Rahul Kohli announced that he would be voicing Scarecrow.[8]
