Pennyworth from Epix for me has been a pleasant surprise. Some may poke fun at it by saying it’s just a series about Batman’s butler. But any DC fan knows the important role that Alfred Pennyworth plays in the life of Bruce Wayne. He is the parental figure that guides him from the moment of his parent’s death. So it’s arguably a very compelling story to tell because without Alfred, is there a Batman? That is an argument for another day.
With a successful season one, Pennyworth is ready to kick off season two in December. If you have been following along you already know about a couple of surprises that are in store for the second season. Including the fact that Martha Kane is pregnant and not by Thomas. Today Epix released the first trailer for the second season of Pennyworth. You can check it out below!
Also here is the synopsis for the second season:
A year after the explosive events of last season, England finds itself embroiled in a devastating civil war, with the powerful, neo-fascist Raven Union, led by Lord Harwood (Jason Flemyng) threatening to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few resistance holdouts remaining. It’s here in the West End Neutral Zone, that we find Alfred Pennyworth. After years in the British Army, his training with the SAS has taught him to be a cynical optimist – expecting the worst, but knowing that he can handle it. Now running The Delaney, a black-market Soho club that welcomes everyone, regardless of their politics, Alfred, with his SAS mates, Deon “Bazza” Bashford (Hainsley Lloyd Bennett) and Wallace “Daveboy” MacDougal (Ryan Fletcher), is now in search of a way out – before London, and his country, burns itself to the ground. And he’s got his eye on America.
It will be interesting to see how this season develops. It is going to have many twists and turns that see’s our character go in and out of where what we expect from them. It will also be interesting to see if they decide to really work in their own timeline that maybe doesn’t fit in with the traditional Batman mythology. Overall it looks like it will pick up right where it left off, which is a good thing.
