Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are getting their own special on HBO Max — a Valentine’s Day special!

Harley Quinn: A Very Problematic Valentine’s Day Special was announced via the show’s Twitter account on Friday morning, alongside a tender photo of the two leading ladies on a dinner date.

Not much else is known about it so far, although it seems as if it may have been written prior to the departure of co-showrunners Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker, who handed the show off to Sarah Peters for the upcoming season four.

Halpern fondly called the special “one of the stupidest things I’ve ever been a part of,” while Schumacker agreed “it’s the most gonzo, absurd thing we’ve done with #HarleyQuinn yet” — which is a pretty high bar if you’re familiar with the show.

Harley Quinn was previously renewed for a fourth season prior to season three wrapping up its 10-episode run in September.

Still, fans of the irreverent take on one of DC’s most popular queer couples have been anxious about what the future holds for Harley Quinn in the wake of Warner Bros. Discover kicking cartoons off the platform and into the void to never be seen again.

Coupled with their unceremonious cancelation of Batgirl and Scoob! 2 A Holiday Haunt when both were almost completed, and it’s become to difficult to trust that our favorite WB properties — including everything on HBO/HBO Max — won’t suddenly face similar treatment.

That the network ordered a Valentine’s Day special revolving around Harley and Ivy feels like a good sign, but considering their recent past, we’ll celebrate fully once it’s actually released on February 23 of next year.
