“Harley Quinn”: DC Universe Announces November Premiere Date; “BizarroTV” Anthology Series

So far, we’ve liked what we’ve seen from DC Universe‘s adult-oriented animated series Harley Quinn. The streaming service had teased fans with minor details about the series going back to 2018’s New York Comic Con (NYCC), and since that time we’ve gotten to see more of the mayhem awaits (more on that below).

So it was only appropriate that this year’s NYCC would be the occasion to reveal that the Kaley Cuoco-starrer will storm onto the streamer starting November 29. Executive Producers Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker made the reveal during the DC Universe presentation on Thursday.

Here’s a look at what viewers can expect when Harley Quinn takes over DC Universe later this year:

The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco lead the charge (and leads the series) over the past few months to keep fans posted on Ms. Quinn’s travels, taking to social media to give the people what they want: as much Harley news as possible. Cuoco shared a look, which confirmed three things: Harley still has “the crazy eyes,” still understands the proper use of a baseball bat, and is still set to premiere Fall 2019:

Here’s a look at a few seconds from the upcoming animated series – and while the moments may be brief, they’re enough to give us a sense that this Harley doesn’t take orders from anyone – even if their nickname is “puddin”:

During last October’s NYCC, Warner Bros. Animation unveiled a first-look at the upcoming animated series with a special video created specifically for the con. After the screening, Cuoco took the stage – giving attendees the first opportunity to welcome the actress to the role and learn of her take on the character – and as you can see from the following clip, Cuoco has definitely been doing her homework:

THE BIG BANG THEORY’s Kaley Cuoco stars as the voice of Gotham’s criminal queenpin Harley Quinn in the new animated series for the DC UNIVERSE digital subscription service.

In an interview with Bleeding Cool, the actor discussed his overall approach to voice acting and if it differs from his approach to live acting before briefly explaining what the Harley Quinn recording experience was like for him – and how it connects back to Meloni’s work on 2014’s FOX sitcom Surviving Jack:
