FIRST LOOK: Season 2 of DC's 'Pennyworth'
The series' second installment takes place exactly one year later.
Check out the official trailer below.
The series follows a young Alfred Pennyworth, who eventually becomes Batman's butler and most trusted friend. Set in the 1960s, Pennyworth - a former British SAS soldier - goes to work with a young billionaire by the name of Thomas Wayne.
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 (Jason Flemyng) 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.
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 (Hainsley Lloyd Bennett) and Wallace “Daveboy” MacDougal (Ryan Fletcher), 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.
