Executive producer and co-creator Patrick Schumacker took to Twitter to confirm that Veep alum Sam Richardson has been cast for an undisclosed role in the highly-anticipated third season of Harley Quinn. The Kaley Cuoco-led popular DC animated series currently has no official return date yet, but creators Schumacker and Justin Halpern revealed in a previous interview that they’re hoping that Season 3 could potentially premiere later this year.
Richardson is no stranger to voice acting as he previously lent his voice in a number of animated shows such as Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Archer, Human Discoveries, BoJack Horseman, The Fungies!, and most recently Hulu and Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. Richardson is the first casting addition to the new season after nearly a year since it was announced that Harley Quinn had been officially picked up by HBO Max from DC Universe, which has been rebranded as a sole premium comic book service called DC Universe Infinite.
The series follows Harley Quinn‘s adventures after her break with the Joker. The story centers around Harley, Poison Ivy, and other DC castoffs including King Shark, Clayface, and Doctor Pyscho as they try to help each other in order to earn a seat at the biggest table in villainy: the Legion of the Doom. Season 2 ended with Harley and Ivy finally getting together, following Ivy’s failed wedding with Kite Man.
The voice cast includes Big Bang Theory‘s Kaley Cuoco as the titular villain, Lake Bell (Children’s Hospital) as Poison Ivy, Alan Tudyk (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) as Clayface & Joker, Ron Funches (Powerless) as King Shark, JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Frank the Plant, Jason Alexander (Seinfeld) as Sy Borgman, Wanda Sykes (Black-ish) as Queen of Fables, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) as Lex Luthor, Natalie Morales (Bojack Horseman), Jim Rash (Mike Tyson Mysteries) as Riddler, Diedrich Bader (Veep) as Batman, Tony Hale (Arrested Development, Veep) as Dr. Psycho, Chris Meloni (Happy!) as Commissioner Gordon, Rahul Kohli (iZombie) as Scarecrow, Sanaa Lathan (The Twilight Zone) as Catwoman, Vanessa Marshall as Wonder Woman and Jacob Tremblay as Robin.
Based on the DC character created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, Harley Quinn is created and executive produced by Justin Halpern, Schumacker, and Dean Lorey. In addition to starring, Cuoco is also an executive producer through her Yes, Norman Productions.
