Adult Swim debuted a new promo for the upcoming Harley Quinn animated series marathon on Toonami! One of the most exciting aspects of Adult Swim's Toonami programming block lately is how the last couple of years have seen the return of multiple DC Universe animated projects returning to the block after years of being away. Now Toonami will be expanding with yet another animated series from the DC Universe with an upcoming marathon of the first season of the animated Harley Quinn series that initially debuted on the DC Universe streaming service before shifting to HBO Max.
To celebrate the upcoming release of The Suicide Squad in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6th, Toonami will be airing the first season of DC Universe Harley Quinn on Saturday, August 7th. Running from 10:30PM to 5:00AM EST. This means fans will get to see the entire run of that first season, and then check out the second season with HBO Max (along with potentially watching The Suicide Squad over that same weekend) soon after. Check out the promo below as spotted by @swimpedia on Twitter:
