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 (Jack Bannon). 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.
The series follows Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge), who’s not yet Bruce’s father. Alfred is described as a boyishly handsome, cheerful, charming, clever young man from London. You would never take him for an SAS killer, thanks to his honest, open-faced, and witty demeanor. Alfred doesn’t know how to reconcile the kind-hearted boy he used to be with the cold, calculated killer he was forced to become, and he doesn’t know what to make of himself yet.
Pennyworth stars Jack Bannon (The Imitation Game, Medici) as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge (Fleabag) as Thomas Wayne, Emma Paetz as Martha Kane, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) as Lord Harwood and Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes. Season 2 cast members include Simon Manyonda (His Dark Materials) and Jessica de Gouw (The Hunting, Gretel and Hansel), who are set to portray the roles of Lucius Fox and Melanie Troy, respectively.
James Purefoy (Altered Carbon), Edward Hogg (Taboo), Jessye Romeo (In the Long Run), Ramon Tikaram (Brassic), and Harriet Slater (Faunutland and the Lost Magic) have also been set as new series regulars for the second season.
Pennyworth comes from executive producer and writer Bruno Heller (Gotham, The Mentalist, Rome) and Danny Cannon (Gotham, CSI). The series is based on DC characters created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Production on the Warner Horizon Scripted Television series began last October at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.
