Uh, I think they're gonna hate it, Harls. They hate everything.
No way! It's got comedy, action, incredibly gratuitous violence, and unlike that Deadpool cartoon, it's actually coming out!
— Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn about their potential audience.[1]

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]

On February 2018, multiple casting calls from the series were released.[11][12] On October 3, 2018, Warner Bros. Animation unveiled a first look at Harley Quinn at the New York Comic Con. Kaley Cuoco was announced as the voice actress for the titular character, also serving as an executive producer through her Yes, Normans production banner, with Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Ron Funches, J.B. Smoove, Jason Alexander, Wanda Sykes, Giancarlo Esposito, Natalie Morales, Jim Rash, Diedrich Bader, Tony Hale and Christopher Meloni cast in undisclosed roles.[13] It was later confirmed that Bell, Tudyk, Bader and Meloni would be voicing Poison Ivy, the Joker, Batman, and Jim Gordon, respectively.[2][14][15] On October 11, 2018, Rahul Kohli announced that he would be voicing Scarecrow.[16]

The show was renewed for a third season on September 18, 2020 which would premiere on HBO Max[17] as DC Universe would no longer host video content and all DC Universe originals would migrate to HBO Max.[18]
