At New York Comic Con, Epix revealed the first teaser and premiere date for Pennyworth Season 2. Pennyworth will return on December 13th, 2020 only on EPIX. Series stars Jack Bannon (Alfred Pennyworth), Ben Aldridge (Thomas Wayne), and Paloma Faith (Bet Sykes) as well as executive producer Bruno Heller joined the panel discussion at NYCC.
In the second season of Pennyworth, the DC drama series that follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) in 1960s London where he works with young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), it will be discovered that Martha Kane (Emma Paetz) is…pregnant! with the boy who will one day wear a cape and cowl to fight crime and protect the city- Bruce Wayne.
Last month, during the Pennyworth panel at DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse, executive producer Bruno Heller shared the happy unexpected news with the parents-to-be-by-acting-proxy Emma Paetz and Ben Aldridge. It was also revealed during the DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes event that DC character Lucius Fox would be joining the series in season two.
In addition to Bannon, Aldridge, and Paetz, 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 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) would be joining the cast as series regulars.
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. This one-hour drama series follows Alfred Pennyworth, 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, who has not yet become Bruce Wayne’s father. Season one of Pennyworth is currently available to watch on EPIX and the EPIX NOW app.
