About ‘Pennyworth’ Season Three
The previous season saw the Wayne family deep into civil war, with the Raven Union staging a takeover of the United Kingdom with the help of the military and the public.
It also presented the chemical weapon with the power of wiping out the entire nation and leaving its infrastructure on shaky ground. Pennyworth season two concluded with preventing the Stormcloud threat, although Alfred’s future remained unsure.
The upcoming season picks up from where its predecessor left off. Five years later, Alfred approaches the future butler of the Wayne in request to face a group using Lullaby State, a new psycho-kinetic drug. The civil war is over, and the season will welcome a new set of Supervillains and Heroes after a cultural revolution changed the world.
HBO Max’s trailer starts with sensational music, alongside a note, “Before the Batman, before Gotham, before the Butler, there was Alfred.” There seems to be so much in store for DC fans.

Pennyworth was created by Bill Finger and Bob Kane, alongside John Stephens, Danny Cannon, Matthew Patnick, and Bruno Heller as the chief producers.
