Pennyworth Season 3 spoilers
The DC origin series Pennyworth follows Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), a former British SAS soldier, who forms a security company in 1960s London and goes to work with young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge).
This is before Bruce Wayne’s birth.
Pennyworth explores the early life of the Wayne family butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who formed his own security company in an alternate universe in which Hitler and Nazi Germany won World War II.
This took place in London, which combined aspects of the 1950s and 1960s with invented events and practices.
There was also a new civil war with televised public executions.
There is also the Raven Society, which is a group conspiring to take over the British government. Alfred teams up with Thomas Wayne and Martha Kane (Bruce Wayne’s future parents) and he begins working against the Raven Society alongside American agents of the No Name League.
Season 3 begins after a five-year time jump: the civil war is over, and a cultural revolution has changed the world for better or worse – ushering in a new age of Superheroes and Supervillains.
HBO Max has yet to announce when Pennyworth Season 3 will premiere.
