Harley Quinn concluded its second season three months ago.
With DC Universe gradually scaling back its scripted offerings, the future was uncertain for the animated series.
The show found popularity recently when it was made available to stream for subscribers of HBO Max, with many pleading with the new streamer to order a third season.
The announcement was made today as HBO Max pulled the trigger on a Season 3 renewal, while also announcing it would be picking up the rights to stream fellow DC Universe series Young Justice and Titans.
DC Universe has also announced it will no longer offer scripted content and will instead focus on becoming a digital comic book service, which will launch on January 21, 2021.
With access to more than 24,000 comic books at launch, DC UNIVERSE INFINITE subscribers will also encounter digital-first comics, exclusive access to DC fan events, as well as a steady stream of recently released comics six months after the physical versions hit store shelves.
Following its initial launch, DC UNIVERSE INFINITE will begin expanding globally in SUMMER 2021.
“Our fans love the platform’s robust library of comic books and, with the transformation, we will not disappoint,” said DC Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee.
“I’m excited to share that not only will DC UNIVERSE INFINITE members still be able to read all of the great comics that they’ve enjoyed but new issues are debuting on the platform quicker than before, digital first exclusives are being created, and the members-only events will begin as soon as possible. There has never been a better time to be a DC fan!”
DC’s premium digital comic book platform provides members with an expanded collection of comics and Original Graphic Novels, spanning over 80 years of the DC Multiverse.
Fans can also download comics, graphic novels and originals for unlimited offline reading on their favorite devices from a smartphone or tablet.
Subscribers will also have earlier access to new Digital First comics that include titles such as Aquaman: Deep Dives, Batman: Gotham Nights, DCeased: Hope at World’s End, Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red, Injustice: Year Zero, Shazam!: Lightning Strikes, Superman: Man of Tomorrow, Swamp Thing: New Roots and Wonder Woman 84, and many more.
Also debuting on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE will be DC Universe Infinite Originals, including new comic content centered around beloved characters.
The fan-favorite community area will be free to all registered and premium subscribers with a full calendar of events planned for 2021. Current DC UNIVERSE subscribers will not need to create a new account as their DC UNIVERSE login will transfer to DC UNIVERSE INFINITE.
