It looks as though we aren’t quite done learning all of the secrets of Alfred Pennyworth.

Epix has announced that it has renewed Pennyworth for a season 2. The series is expected to begin filming the new episodes in Jan. 2020 in the U.K.

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,” Epix president Michael Wright said in a statement. “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.”

Set in an alternate version of 1960’s London, season 1 followed Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) as he returned from a tour in the SAS and founded his own security company. He then fell into a war between secret societies, met Thomas Wayne, and a whole lot more. It was a crazy ride of a season, but one that we enjoyed. We can’t wait to see what they have planned for a season 2.

No word yet on when Pennyworth season 2 will debut.
