A trailer for Epix’s Pennyworth Season 2 has finally been declassified and is spreading across the internet like wildfire. The new season, which stars Jack Bannon as a young Alfred Pennyworth, premieres December 13, 2020. The second season will then air on December 20, 2020, with a two-part mid-season finale going live on December 27, 2020. Then, after we finally ring in a new year, the remainder of the season will continue to roll out.
Pennyworth burst onto the airwaves last year with a rat-a-tat blend of Guy Ritchie and Batman mythology. If you didn’t see it, odds are you don’t have Epix, but I encourage you to check out the swinging-sixties set show that reimagines the early days of Alfred’s life before he became a surrogate father to Bruce Wayne. Chock full of dames, fistfights, and old school Cockney slang, Pennyworth is quite the proper argie, bargie.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pennyworth Season 2:
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 (Jason Flemyng) threatening to control the entire country. North London remains one of the few resistance holdouts remaining. It’s 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, Deon “Bazza” Bashford (Hainsley Lloyd Bennett) and Wallace “Daveboy” MacDougal (Ryan Fletcher), is now in search of a way out – before London, and his country burns itself to the ground. And he’s got his eye on America.
