Pennyworth is returning for its third season in October, and new installments of the DC Comics-inspired show will debut straight onto HBO Max instead of Epix.
The prequel show now boasts a new title: Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler.
The new title appears at the end of the show’s official Season 3 trailer.
The DC origin series Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier, who forms a security company in 1960s London and goes to work with young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) and his wife Martha (Emma Paetz), before they become Bruce Wayne’s parents.
Season three of the psychological thriller begins after a five-year time jump: the civil war is over, and a cultural revolution has changed the world for better or worse – ushering in a new age of Super Heroes and Supervillains.
Season three of the hit DC series, Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler, from Warner Bros. Television, debuts this October on HBO Max as a Max Original.
The cast includes Jack Bannon, Ben Aldridge, Emma Paetz, Paloma Faith, Ryan Fletcher, Dorothy Atkinson, Ramon Tikaram, Harriet Slater, and Simon Manyonda.
Based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, the ten-episode drama series from Warner Bros. Television is executive produced by Bruno Heller, Matthew Patnick, Danny Cannon, and John Stephens.
The series is produced in the UK at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
