Deadline is reporting that negotiations for a potential third season of Warner Bros. Television’s Pennyworth may see the series moving to a new home.

According to the trade, WB is looking to negotiate a deal for a third season which allows the previous two seasons to begin streaming via WarnerMedia owned platform, HBO Max. If an agreement is reached, and there is a Season 3 pickup, Epix would get a second window to new episodes.

The development is not surprising. Pennyworth was sold to MGM-owned Epix months before WBTV parent WarnerMedia announced plans to launch its own streaming service, which became HBO Max. Existing originals on Warner Bros. TV Group’s platform DC Universe, including Harley Quinn and Titans, migrated to HBO Max, which was billed as a premium home for DC programming with an extensive upcoming slate of high-profile series such as Peacemaker, Green Lantern, Untitled Gotham City Police Department project, and DC Superhero High.

The series centers on Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), who before becoming Bruce Wayne’s butler is a former British SAS soldier in his 20s who forms a security company in 1960s London and goes to work with young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who has not yet become Bruce’s father.

In addition to Bannon, Aldridge, Pennyworth season two features the return of stars Hainsley Lloyd Bennett, Ryan Fletcher, Dorothy Atkinson and Polly Walker, with multi-award-winning recording artist Paloma Faith and Jason Flemyng. Earlier this year, it was announced that Emma Paetz will joint he cast as Martha Kent alongside James Purefoy (The Following, Sex Education, Altered Carbon), Edward Hogg (Taboo, Harlots, White Lightning), Jessye Romeo (Curfew, In the Long Run), Ramon Tikaram (Brassic, The Victim) and Harriet Slater (Faunutland and the Lost Magic).

Based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, Pennyworth was developed by Bruno Heller, who executive produces with Danny Cannon and Matthew Patnick. The series airs on EPIX in the U.S and U.K.
