Created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger, ‘Pennyworth’ is a riveting crime drama series that follows the adventures of a young Alfred Pennyworth, the former British SAS soldier who would go on to work for Thomas and Martha Wayne and later their son Bruce. The show explores the early lives of these iconic DC Comics characters, years before the Caped Crusader was even born.
The engaging spy-thriller show has mostly met with approval from critics and audiences, even though it does not add much to the Batman legend. With the first two seasons a success on Epix, it’s no wonder that fans are curious about whether or not a third season of ‘Pennyworth’ is in the works. Well, here’s what we know.
Pennyworth Season 3 Release Date
‘Pennyworth’ season 2 released on December 13, 2020, on Epix, with the season wrapping up on April 11, 2021. The second season comprises ten episodes that run for about an hour each.
As far as the third season is concerned, there has been no news of renewal or cancellation as of now. The show’s makers or any cast and crew members have not spilled the beans on whether or not the next season is underway. Now, fans already would know that the narrative has not been tied up by the end of the second season, which leaves a probable window open for a season 3.
If we look at the show’s development history, season 2 was renewed a month after the first season aired its finale. If that’s a pattern the makers intend to follow, then the fate of the third installment should be announced soon. If ‘Pennyworth’ gets renewed for the next season before the end of Summer 2021 and filming begins this year, we can expect ‘Pennyworth’ season 3 to land on our screens sometime in the first half of 2022.
Pennyworth Season 3 Cast: Who can be in it?
The main cast of ‘Pennyworth’ is a talented bunch led by Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Deon “Bazza” Bashford, Ryan Fletcher as Wallace “Dave Boy” McDougal, Dorothy Atkinson as Alfred’s mother Mary Pennyworth, Ian Puleston-Davies as his father Arthur Pennyworth, and Emma Paetz as Martha Kane.
Adding to the show’s intrigue quotient are Paloma Faith as the sadistic Bet Sykes, Jason Flemyng as Lord James Harwood, Ramon Tikaram as Detective Inspector Aziz, Edward Hogg as Colonel John Salt, and Harriet Slater as Sandra Onslow. Most of the cast from seasons 1 and 2 are expected to reprise their respective roles for the third season if it gets renewed.
Pennyworth Season 3 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 2 of ‘Pennyworth,’ England is engulfed in a calamitous civil war, with the neo-fascist Raven Union, commanded by Lord Harwood, threatening to wrest control of the nation. North London endures as one of the last holdouts for the resistance. It’s in the West End Neutral Zone that Alfred is living and operating. Season 2 sees Alfred Pennyworth run The Delaney, a black-market Soho club, with his SAS comrades, Bazza and Daveboy. Alfred spends the season looking for a way out of England and into America.
In the second season’s finale, while they are embroiled in war, Martha goes into labor and gives birth to a baby girl. This is bound to be a surprise for the many fans who were hoping to see a baby Bruce. Season 3, if it gets greenlighted, will make things clearer with regards to the identity of the baby’s father (could it be Alfred?). Also, the last episode of season 2 finally introduces a super-powered character in ‘Pennyworth’ – Gulliver Troy, Alfred’s former SAS Captain and nemesis. Troy swallows the Stormcloud capsule in order to contain the bomb and develops superpowers because of it. Season 3 should explore further the effects the bomb capsule had on Troy physically and mentally.
