With Sean Pertwee portraying a middle-aged Alfred Pennyworth, Batman’s faithful friend and butler, in 2014’s Gotham, it appears that the 2010s sparked a desire to see a youthful Alfred Pennyworth. But it wasn’t until 2019 that DC fans saw a really young version of the well-known DC Comics character in the Epix TV series Pennyworth, which was properly named.
Pennyworth, played by Jack Bannon, is a young man in an alternate world of London in the 1950s and 1960s. The former SAS soldier suffers from severe PTSD as a result of the war’s carnage, and in order to resume his normal life, he establishes his own personal security firm.
While it begins well, Pennyworth is rapidly lured into a plot centered on the Raven Society, a group whose goal is to topple the British government and build their own fascist state. When they come for Pennyworth and his fiancée, Esme (Emma Corrin), he fights back, finding friends in No Name League members Thomas Wayne and Martha Kane.
The television series Pennyworth is an action-packed, sophisticated spy thriller that appeals to both casual viewers and die-hard DC fans. After a production delay owing to the pandemic, the program was renewed for a second season, which debuted on Epix on December 13, 2020. Fans of the show are now looking forward to fresh episodes to see what Pennyworth and his buddies are up to next.
When is Pennyworth Season 3 coming out?
The Season 2 finale of Pennyworth aired on April 11, 2021, and there has been no official announcement about the series’ future since then. Despite this, there are several hints that the program will certainly continue, and it may even find a new home. Pennyworth has been an Epix original till now, but that might change very soon. Epix is a lesser-known premium cable channel that features a limited amount of original fictional programs. Get Shorty, Berlin Station, and Godfather of Harlem are among Epix’s tiny selection of drama and comedy series. Apart from that, the channel concentrates mostly on unscripted docuseries.
With this in mind, it shouldn’t have come as a huge surprise when Epix and WarnerMedia revealed that they were in discussions to move the series to HBO Max for Season 3. (via Deadline). This would include the first two seasons of Pennyworth joining other notable DC live-action shows such as Titans and Doom Patrol, as well as the planned Green Lantern and Peacemaker series, on the streaming service. Keep a watch out for any future developments on the scenario, since Pennyworth would fit right in. With any luck, Season 3 will be renewed shortly, and new episodes will be available in early to mid-2022.
Who is in the third season of Pennyworth’s cast?
Along with Bannon, Aldridge, and Paetz, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett and Ryan Fletcher portray Pennyworth’s two devoted army closest pals, Bazza and Dave Boy, while Dorothy Atkinson and Ian Puleston-Davies play Pennyworth’s mother and father, respectively. Of course, Jason Fleming plays Lord James Harwood, Paloma Faith plays scheming psychopath Bet Sykes, and Polly Walker plays Bet’s sister, Peggy.
Pennyworth Season 2 introduces a few new series regulars, as well as the promotion of two characters from Season 1 to series regular rank. Both Ramon Tikaram and Harriet Slater, who portray the persistent Detective Inspector Aziz who always gets in Pennyworth’s way, and Harriet Slater, who plays Sandra Onslow, Pennyworth’s love interest.
Colonel John Salt, a high-ranking member of the Raven Union, the successor of the Raven Society, was introduced in Season 2 by Edward Hogg. Katie Browning, an art student who becomes associated with the Raven Union, is played by Jessye Romeo, while Captain Gulliver Troy, Pennyworth’s former SAS (Special Air Service) captain, is played by James Purefoy (Deadline).
In Season 3, what will happen to Pennyworth and his pals?
Pennyworth Seasons 1 and 2 are separated by a few months as the Raven Society, which was severely harmed by Pennyworth and his associates, recovers as the Raven Union. Kane is promoted to lieutenant in the No Name League, and she reunites with Wayne, who announces his engagement. Meanwhile, Pennyworth tries to flee town with some cash and his companions, but he is drawn back to London by turmoil.
Pennyworth suffers the heartbreaking loss of his close buddy Bazza during Season 2, prompting him and Daveboy to make a commitment to go to America as they had hoped.
Aziz is elected Prime Minister, and the Raven Union begins producing Stormcloud, a deadly chemical that they intend to deploy as a weapon. Another well-known character from the DC “Batman” comics, Lucius Fox, appears at this time.
Finally, a number of significant events occur, setting the stage for an action-packed Season 3. Kane and Wayne first get acquainted and become pregnant, after which Aziz marries them. Lord Harwood is also victimised by other Raven Union members who are deceptive and power-hungry, while Pennyworth, Daveboy, and others are able to effectively thwart Stormcloud’s devastation plot. Kane, now Martha Wayne, gives birth to an unexpected baby girl, entirely contradicting all previous canon.
