Everyone’s favorite lovable loser, Kite Man, is getting his own animated series. HBO Max has ordered a 10-episode season of Noonan’s, a spinoff of its critically acclaimed DC animated series, Harley Quinn, voiced by Kaley Cuoco. The series will center on Kite Man, as he moonlights as a criminal to finance the purchase of Noonan’s, a seedy dive bar in Gotham City.

“We love the wild and fun world of Harley Quinn so much we just had to make a spinoff, and who better to center it around than the outcast Kite Man. Justin, Patrick, and Dean have created the perfect local hangout for Gotham City’s not-so-finest at Noonan’s, where bar patrons can blow off steam after a long day of mayhem,” said Suzanna Makkos, evp, original comedy and adult animation, HBO Max and Adult Swim, in a statement.

Matt Oberg will voice Kite Man. The show is executive produced by Justin Halpern, Patrick Schumacker, Sam Register, Dean Lorey, and Kaley Cuoco. Dean Lorey serves as showrunner. The series is based on the characters from DC Comics, produced by Delicious Non-Sequitur and Yes, Norman Productions in association with Warner Bros. Animation.
