While discussing the upcoming series Harley Quinn, Kaley Cuoco gave us a few hints into the show. The series which premieres in 2019 begins with Harley Quinn breaking up with The Joker.

She wanted to lead the pack, and according to Kaley Cuoco, in today’s age and time, the plot is very relevant. The Big Bang Theory star also finds the idea very empowering.
