Pennyworth season 2 is set to debut in December, but don’t expect an uninterrupted run of watching the episodes.
Following the release of a new Pennyworth trailer this week, a full synopsis has been announced as well as an episode schedule. First, the synopsis.
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’s here in the West End Neutral Zone, that we find Alfred Pennyworth (played by Jack Bannon). 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 and Wallace “Daveboy” MacDougal, 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.
Pennyworth season 2 will debut on Dec. 13, followed by episode two on Dec. 20. Then, on Dec. 27 episodes three and four will make their debuts. From there, things are a bit more nebulous. The remaining episodes are scheduled for some time in 2021, but no specific date has been named as of yet.
As we learned during the DC FanDome panel, only a few episodes of season 2 had been filmed when the coronavirus caused the series to halt production. As filming has finally resumed around the United Kingdom, one would imagine it will take a while for those newly shot episodes to be completed.
Hopefully we won’t have to wait until too far into 2021 to see where the origin story of Alfred Pennyworth takes us next.
Pennyworth season 2 will debut on Epix on Dec. 13.
