Marvel has released some entertaining holiday-themed specials this year, including Werewolf by Night and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which were both released on Disney+ during the appropriate holidays. However, the MCU isn’t the only series embracing the holiday. It was revealed in October that Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special, a one-off episode of the animated series, would air in February. This past week, Patrick Schumacker, who oversaw the show’s first three seasons, teased the upcoming special on Twitter.
“I’m somehow even more proud of the @dcharleyquinn Valentine’s Day Special after hearing @jeffefferspin’s music for the first time while watching it. HARLEY QUINN: On February 23, @hbomax will release A Very Problematic Valentines Day!” wrote Schumacker. “I can attest that Atlas Oceanic’s @MrGeorgePeters and team mixed up HARLEY QUINN: A VERY PROBLEMATIC VALENTINES SPECIAL. Killer sound coming from the top, the bottom, and all sides. It’s hard for me to wait until February 23 for you all to see this.” The tweets are displayed below:

Why Is A New Showrunner Being Hired For Harley Quinn?
The conclusion of August saw the announcement that Harley Quinn would receive a fourth season. When the news first surfaced, it was also revealed that Sarah Peters, who has written for Harley Quinn since the first season and serves as a consulting producer (Workaholics, Master of None, Nathan for You), would be promoted to executive producer and take over as showrunner for the fourth season. In a recent interview with The A.V. Club, Schumacker discussed these behind-the-scenes changes and revealed that Justin Halpern and Peters are taking over in part to expand the Harley Quinn series into spin-offs.
“Fans can anticipate a smooth changeover with Sarah as showrunner”, according to Schumacker. “As the head of an incredibly talented season four writing staff, she now has the opportunity to spread her wings. We are fortunate to have a real comedy queen in such a crucial position.”
According to Schumacker, Halpern and Schumaker will “take more of a 10,000-foot view of the series.” “We will continue to serve as advisors and coordinators, offering our opinions on the season arc, episode synopses, scripts, voiceovers, and designs and cuts. We are excited about what Sarah and the team have planned for season four because we are well aware of what she has in store.” Peters has had “an incredibly influential voice on Harley since season two,” according to Schumaker.
The first three seasons of Harley Quinn are currently available to watch on HBO Max, and Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special will premiere in February 2023.
