Harley Quinn Takes Over SYFY's Sunday Nights Starting In May

When Harley Quinn returned for a second season to the DC Universe streaming service, neither the series nor the anti-hero hero (Kaley Cuoco) had any interest in doing things the "same old, same old." Her Harley-ness is not only premiering overseas next month on the UK's E4 (paired up with a returning Rick and Morty) but the hit animated series from Warner Bros. Animation is also set to have an exclusive cable run of the first season on SYFY starting Sunday, May 3. Voiced by The Big Bang Theory alum and executive producer, the series finds Harley ditching Joker and striking out on her own and looking to start her own crew. Her goal: a seat at the table as a member of the Legion of Doom.

The series' run wraps up on May 24, with the final three episodes running from 12 am to 1:30 am ET/PT. Now, here's a look at what you can expect:

Speaking of Meloni, the actor discussed his approach to voice acting compared to live acting with Bleeding Cool before explaining what his Harley Quinn recording experience was like (and how it connected to Meloni's work on 2014 FOX sitcom Surviving Jack):
