If you’ve been hoping to see more adventures for Jack Bannon’s Alfred Pennyworth then we have some news for you. Epix has announced that it has renewed Pennyworth for a second season!
“Pennyworth has been a big hit for us, embraced by critics and fans alike. It was the highest-performing original series ever to premiere on Epix, more than doubling the viewership of the shows that came before it,” Epix president Michael Wright said in a statement. “Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and WBTV have delivered a brilliant, must watch series. We can’t wait to work with this phenomenal cast and creative team on another exciting season.”
The second season is expected to begin filming the new episodes in January 2020 here in the UK.
“Pennyworth is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. It follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne, Bruce’s billionaire father, in 1960’s London. Production will begin later this year, with a series premiere slated for 2019.”
Pennyworth stars Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth with Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, and Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza.
Season one is available now in the UK via Starzplay on AppleTV.
