The streaming wars has claimed another victim.
Two years after it launched as a home for scripted originals and library content, DC Universe is officially exiting the scripted landscape and transitioning to a comics-centric platform. But there is good news that comes with the change: All of the platform’s scripted originals and library titles will move to fellow WarnerMedia-backed streamer HBO Max. That includes animated breakout Harley Quinn, which has now been renewed for a third season.
Harley Quinn will join Doom Patrol and the previously announced third season of Titans as HBO Max originals. Previous seasons of all three shows will also now migrate to HBO Max. The trio of Greg Berlanti-produced dramas from Warner Bros. TV will join other originals Young Justice and Stargirl.
Harley Quinn, from showrunners Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker, has picked up steam since its first two seasons arrived on HBO Max. Sources say the renewal followed a round of negotiations that hinged on a new budget for the series.
