Pennyworth has been canceled at HBO Max following its third season.
Launched on Epix in 2019, Pennyworth moved to HBO Max for its third season. It also expanded its title from just Pennyworth to Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler with the move.
HBO Max issued a statement about the decision.
While HBO Max is not moving forward with another season of ‘Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler,’ we are very thankful to creator Bruno Heller and executive producers Matthew Patnick, Danny Cannon and John Stephens, along with Warner Bros. Television, for their brilliant, unique, gripping depiction of the origin of Alfred Pennyworth, one of the most iconic characters in the Batman world. An incredible blend of action, drama and humor, for three seasons, ‘Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler’ has taken fans on a mind-bending ride into Alfred’s eccentric world and the beginnings of cutting-edge super heroes and super villains.
The series starred Jack Bannon as Pennyworth and he was joined by Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne and Emma Paetz as Martha Wayne. The cast also included the likes of Paloma Faith, Ryan Fletcher, Dorothy Atkinson, Ramon Tikaram, Harriet Slater, and Simon Manyonda.
Sadly, the third season left us on a cliffhanger, and we also had not yet seen the birth of Bruce Wayne. Perhaps those stories could be told in another medium at some point.
