In 2014’s “Gotham,” Sean Pertwee portrays a middle-aged Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s devoted friend and butler, but fans in the 2010s seemed to crave a younger version of the character. However, it wasn’t until the Epix TV series “Pennyworth” premiered in 2019 that fans of the well-known DC Comics character saw a really young version of the character.
Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) is a young guy in an alternative London in the 1950s and 1960s. Due to the trauma of battle, the former SAS soldier has developed severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and in an effort to resume a normal life, he sets up his own private security firm.
Pennyworth is rapidly sucked into a conspiracy centered around the Raven Society, a group with the stated goal of toppling the British government and establishing a fascist state in its place. In order to defend himself and his fiancée, Esme (Emma Corrin), Pennyworth (Ben Aldridge) joins the No Name League, where he meets Thomas Wayne (Emma Paetz) and Martha Kane (Ben Aldridge).
It is a fast-paced, sleek spy thriller that appeals to both regular viewers and DC fanatics alike. The second season debuted on Epix on December 13, 2020, following a postponement due to the pandemic that delayed production. To find out what happens next for Pennyworth and his buddies, the show’s viewers are looking forward to new episodes.
Release Date: Pennyworth Season 3
For six months after “Pennyworth” Season 2 came to an end on April 11, 2021, there was no official word on the show’s future. Fortunately, “Pennyworth” was revived for a third season during the 2021 DC FanDome event.
‘Pennyworth’ had been believed to be moving from Epix to HBO Max (via Deadline) before its formal renewal. When “Pennyworth” was renewed for a third season in October 2021, the suspicions were confirmed, as well as the fact that the show’s third season will air on HBO Max.
Season 3 of “Pennyworth” has yet to be given an official release date. As a result, it was stated at the DC FanDome panel in 2021 that Season 3 of “Pennyworth” will air somewhere around 2022. This means that the launch date for the program in 2022 will most likely be announced in the coming months.
Cast: Pennyworth Season 3
Along with Jack Bannon, Ben Aldridge, and Emma Paetz, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett and Ryan Fletcher portray Pennyworth’s two devoted closest buddies from the army, Bazza and Dave Boy, while Dorothy Atkinson and Ian Puleston-Daves represent Pennyworth’s parents.
Along with Jason Fleming as Lord James Harwood, Paloma Faith as scheming psychopath Bet Sykes, and Polly Walker as Bet’s sister Peggy,
Season 2 of “Pennyworth” added new performers and made two Season 1 stars series regulars. Indeed, Ramon Tikaram (Aziz) and Harriet Slater (Onslow) were appointed series regulars for “Pennyworth” Season 2.
Edward Hogg played Colonel John Salt, a high-ranking member of the Raven Union, and Jessye Romeo played Katie Browning, an art student who joins the Raven Union. Captain Gulliver Troy, Pennyworth’s former SAS captain, is played by James Purefoy (Deadline).
Season 3 of “Pennyworth” has yet to be cast. The show’s 2021 DC FanDome presentation (via YouTube) indicated that “Pennyworth” Season 3 will center on Alfred Bannon, Thomas Aldridge, Martha Paetz, Bet Skyes Faith, and Lucius Fox Simon Manyonda, as well as “all the other’Pennyworth’ characters.” Considering this, it’s reasonable to assume that the show’s core cast will return for the forthcoming season.
