HARLEY QUINN: Ron Funches Promises More Harley Quinn x Poison Ivy Romance In Season 3 (And More King Shark)

King Shark voice actor Ron Funches has disclosed that the third season of HBO Max animated series Harley Quinn will feature a continuation of the romance between the titular loony and Poison Ivy.

We're in the midst of the interim between the second and third season of, formerly DC Universe, now HBO Max animated series Harley Quinn. Based on the DC Comics character of the same name and featuring many more, Harley Quinn is comedic in tone and aimed more towards adults than children, what with explicit language and sexual themes.

The series features other DC Comics characters, beyond just Harley Quinn herself, as a regular supporting cast including Poison Ivy, Kite-Man, the Joker, and King Shark. It's the voice actor for the latter amphibious character who has teased some of what to expect from the highly-anticipated, forthcoming third season.

Ron Funches recently spoke with PopCulture.com wherein he revealed there will be a lot more romance between Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, following that particular aspect of the first two seasons being so well-received.

The end of the second season saw the best friends confess their love for each other and drive off into the sunset, Funches says the third season will feature a solid "continuation of the relationship."

"I think people really fell in love with it," Funches said. "And the fact of them getting together near the end of the season is a beautiful thing and just watching them grow together as a relationship, I think, is what you're going to see a lot in the next season."

The actor went on to talk about his own role in the series, that of King Shark: "Then [with] me, also killing people and biting them in half as a murdery shark man." When asked what's the most enjoyable part about playing King Shark, Funches laughs. "I like yelling," he said. "Getting the aggression out — it's fun. It's fun to just yell at people and just yell that you're going murder people in a little booth."

While a concrete release date for the third season of Harley Quinn hasn't yet been set, it's expected to debut on HBO Max at some point in 2022. We will be sure to keep you updated.
