Media outlets are reporting that DC drama series Pennyworth has been renewed for a second season at Epix.
The series revolves around Alfred Pennyworth, exploring Alfred’s origins as a former British SAS Soldier who forms a secret company and goes to work with Thomas Wayne, who has not yet become Bruce’s father, in 1960’s London.
Epix president Michael Wright, released a statement saying:
Pennyworth has been a big hit for us, embraced by critics and fans alike. It was the highest-performing original series ever to premiere on Epix, more than doubling the viewership of the shows that came before it. Bruno Heller, Danny Cannon and WBTV have delivered a brilliant, must watch series. We can’t wait to work with this phenomenal cast and creative team on another exciting season.
The second season will consist of ten episodes, with production scheduled to commence in January 2020, with the aim to have the second season premiere in 2020.
