Pennyworth, concerning the early lifetime of Batman’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, began on Epix a number of years again.

According to a brand new synopsis, the upcoming third season will happen on the cusp of “a new age of Super Heroes and Supervillains,” so anticipate the present to lean even more durable into the craziness.
Pennyworth didn’t do terribly effectively on Epix, as a result of what even is Epix, and would in all probability have been cancelled if HBO Max hadn’t renewed it for a 3rd season.

Okay, so Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler. To me, that title says that HBO Max has completely no confidence within the skill of this sequence to face by itself. But folks like Batman, proper? Shove him in there!
Anyway, the third season of Pennyworth: A Batman Story About a Guy Who Knows Batman will air on HBO Max in October.
