The Penguin to resume filming after Thanksgiving


Oswald Cobblepot is heading back to the mean streets of Gotham City as filming on The Penguin is set to resume next week.

Variety is reporting that The Penguin will be heading back into production following the Thanksgiving holiday. Filming originally commenced in March of this year, but was suspended in June during the Writers Guild of America strike.

The series will see Colin Farrell reprising his role as Oswald Cobblepot, and Cristin Milioti has joined the cast as Sofia Falcone. Clancy Brown joined as Salvatore Maroni.

Carmen Ejogo (Fantastic Beasts, Alien: Covenant), Francois Chau (Lost, The Expanse), and David H. Holmes (Hulu’s High Fidelity) were the most recent additions to the cast, all in unknown roles.

Prior to them signing on, the last new additions announced in March included Theo Rossi (Luke Cage, Army of the Dead), James Madio, and Scott Cohen have all been added in unannounced roles. Also joining the cast will be Michael Zegan in an unknown role, but sources speaking with Variety indicate he will be playing Alberto Falcone.

Craig Zobel (The Mare of Easttown) has signed on to direct the first two episodes of The Penguin. He will also be serving as an executive producer on the project.

The Penguin project has been discussed for some time and was ordered straight to series shortly after the premiere of The Batman in March 2021.

The Penguin is currently expected to debut in Fall 2024.
