Warner Bros. Japan has officially announced that the upcoming Suicide Squad Isekai anime series will premiere on June 27 with three episodes, and be streamed on Hulu and Max in the U.S.

According to Warner Bros official X’s (formerly Twitter) account, the first three episodes of Suicide Squad Isekai will premiere on the streamers on June 27. Internationally, the show will premiere on ADN in France, HBO GO in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, and Aniplus and Laftel in Korea.

Suicide Squad Isekai, animated by Attack on Titan and Spy x Family animation studio WIT, was first announced at Anime Expo 2023. The series follows DC villains Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Peacemaker, Clayface, and King Shark as they engage in a perilous mission in a fantasy world connected to Gotham where “swords and magic where orcs rampage and dragons rule the skies.”

The Suicide Squad is given an impossible task to battle by Amanda Waller to explore the fantasy world. Naturally, their rampage-filled exploration leads to their imprisonment by the Isekai kingdom soldiers. In order to earn their freedom, the DC baddies must fight against a fearsome imperial army and liberate the fantasy world in the process. As is tradition, the team has to accomplish their mission within 72 hours lest the Waller detonates the bombs in their necks.

While the anime’s English cast has yet to be revealed, its Japanese cast is filled with some notorious voice actors from popular anime series. Key among them are:

  • Anna Nagase (Riko Amanai in Jujutsu Kaisen) as Harley Quinn
  • Yuuichirou Umehara (Goblin Slayer in Goblin Slayer) As Joker
  • Takehito Koyasu (Dio in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure) as Peacemaker
  • Jun Fukuyama as (King in Seven Deadly Sins) Clayface
  • Subaru Kimura (Aoi Todo in Jujutsu Kaisen) as King Shark
  • Chika Anzai (Chisato Nishikigi in Lycoris Recoil) as Katana

Suicide Squad Isekai is slated to have 10 episodes which will air every Thursday on the streamers until its season finale on August 15.
