Pinoy Batman fans rejoice! Delve deeper into the life of the Batman’s most devoted butler, Alfred Pennyworth, as the DC origin series Pennyworth returns for a second season same day as the U.S. on 14 December at 9pm exclusively on Warner TV. New episodes air every Monday at 9pm on Warner TV.
Pennyworth follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon – The Imitation Game), 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 (Ben Aldridge – Our Girl, Reign, Fleabag), who has not yet become Bruce Wayne’s father.
In addition to Bannon and Aldridge, Pennyworth stars Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (Eastenders), Ryan Fletcher (Outlander), Dorothy Atkinson (Hanna, Harlots, Call the Midwife), Ian Puleston-Davies (Tin Star, Marcella), Ramon Tikaram (Brassic, The Victim), Edward Hogg (Taboo, Harlots, White Lightning), Harriet Slater, Jessye Romeo (Curfew, In the Long Run), Paloma Faith (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) and Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). James Purefoy (The Following, Altered Carbon) also stars as a special guest.
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 threatening to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few resistance holdouts remaining. It is 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, “Bazza” and “Daveboy,” is now in search of a way out – before London, and his country, burns itself to the ground. And he has got his eye on America.
Based on DC characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, the 10-episode drama series from Warner Bros. Television is executive produced by Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome), Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI series) and Matthew Patnick (The Night Manager, Peaky Blinders).
