With The Big Bang Theory coming to an end after its current season, it is time for the show’s stars to move on to new projects and it looks like Kaley Cuoco has already found her next big role!
The popular actress will be voicing the title role and serving as an executive producer on the upcoming adult animated series Harley Quinn. The news was announced on Wednesday, October 3 during the world premiere of Titans at New York Comic-Con and DC also released a teaser for the show.
At the event, Cuoco opened up about her next major role as The Big Bang Theory ends. “I’ve always loved animation. I did it years ago, and I haven’t been in the animation world in a while,” Cuoco said. “[Harley Quinn] is so edgy, it’s obviously a very adult comedy, and with such a world-renowned character, it’s been a blast to record.”. “I’ve always loved animation.

Cuoco also explained that the series begins with Harley breaking up with the Joker and deciding to do her own thing as she becomes the “best badass supervillain that there is” and crosses paths with Doctor Psycho, Batman, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman and Poison Ivy.
“She just doesn’t want to be Joker’s girlfriend anymore,” Cuoco said. “She wants to lead the pack, which I find very appropriate for this kind of day and age and vibe that we’re in.”
The actress added that playing Harley Quinn has “definitely been empowering.”
“To sit in a booth and scream and cuss and yell at boys for hours at a time, it has been an absolute blast. Not having to do hair and makeup has made it that much better. But it’s such an iconic character, so with all of that respect and love toward the character, we’re trying to bring a new spin to it, and I think the fans that love this type of show are really going to enjoy it.”
Both Harley Quinn and Doom Patrol are currently in production and expected debut in 2019. Titans premieres Oct. 12 on DC Universe.
