At the end of the second season, Harley and Ivy escape from Gordon together. Ivy then confesses her true feelings to Harley after the two share a kiss. Previously, in the series, Harley initially tries to prove herself as a competent villain after breaking up with the Joker. For this, she starts the formation of her own crew consisting of Poison Ivy, Clayface, Doctor Psycho, King Shark, and Sy Borgman. In the second season, after the Joker sabotages her plan, Harley decides to work with her crew to take down the newly-formed Injustice League consisting of the Penguin, the Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Two-Face, and Bane. She wants to claim Gotham for herself. Each season has 13 episodes.


As for Season 3, Schumacker stated in an interview, “I would love to open Season 3 on an actual Zoom, where the GCPD is just being berated by the city of Gotham for their ineptitude.” Halpern added, "Yeah. It’s like having Gordon deal with the reality of, policing in Gotham has completely failed, and him realizing, “What is this new system that we need to put in, in order to effectively police Gotham?” And is he even capable of it? Because the system is so f***** up. Gotham’s a terrible place to live."
