Today, The Hollywood Reporter announced that DC Comics along with Epix is creating another Batman prequel series from Gotham showrunner Bruno Heller titled Pennyworth. The upcoming is not a Gotham spin-off series but entirely new. It will focus on Bruce Wayne’s trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth as a British SAS Agent before his time with the Wayne’s.
So don’t expect Sean Pertwee to reprise his role from Gotham. The drama marks a reunion for Heller with Gotham’s Danny Cannon, who will exec produce and direct the pilot as he did with the Fox Batman origin story. The series was ordered straight-to-order for 10 episodes.
Pennyworth will debut on Epix
