HBO Max Debuting Season Three of ‘Pennyworth’ in October

HBO Max will debut season three of the DC Comics-based series “Pennyworth” from Warner Bros. Television, this October on as a Max Original. The first two seasons streamed on Epix as a branded original series, also featuring Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth before he became Batman’s butler.

For HBO Max, the show has been rebranded “Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler.” The third season again follows Pennyworth, 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 (the future Batman) Bruce Wayne’s parents. Season three 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 superheroes and supervillains.

The series also stars Paloma Faith, Ryan Fletcher, Dorothy Atkinson, Ramon Tikaram, Harriet Slater and Simon Manyonda. The first two seasons of “Pennyworth” are currently available on Max.

Based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, the 10-episode drama is executive produced by Bruno Heller, Matthew Patnick, Danny Cannon and John Stephens. The series is produced in the U.K. at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
