Love Is In The Air In Harley Quinn's Valentine's Day Special Trailer

While we're waiting for Harley Quinn season 4, a Valentine's Day special will have to tide us over.

We still don't have a release date for Harley Quinn Season 4, but that's okay--HBO Max has something to sate our appetites for a little while, and we have a brand new trailer and a release date. Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine's Day Special will premiere on HBO Max on February 9.

Harley Quinn Season 3 was all about Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy navigating the early stages of a relationship when both brought so much baggage with them. The two seem more stable now, though, and it's time for them to celebrate Valentine's Day.

"As Harley goes to obsessive lengths to ensure that her first Valentine's Day with Ivy is the best ever, Bane's efforts to impress an unexpected date go horribly awry," reads the official synopsis for the special. "Meanwhile, after an unfortunate online dating encounter, Clayface engages in some self-love."

The trailer confirms that Harley Quinn's special will continue to play fast and loose with DC canon, giving even villains like Darkseid (voiced by Michael Ironside) a chance at love. The best moment comes when Bane approaches Etrigan the Demon for help. This character always speaks in rhymes, and so he says to Bane, "Men are from Mars, women Venus, let me guess, you want a bigger--" you get the idea. It both sticks to what makes the character unique and also plays irreverently with it.

The special will feature the voices of Kaley Cuoco, Lake Bell, Alan Tudyk, Matt Oberg, James Wolk, Natalie Morales, Chris Diamantopoulos, James Adomian, Jim Rash, Vanessa Marshall , Janet Varney, Rachel Dratch, Leila Birch, Tyler James Williams, Josh Helman, Casey Wilson, Michael Ironside, and others.
