The first teaser for the Pennyworth series has been released which teases Alfred's origin.
DC has also released new information to make it clear that Pennyworth is not a spinoff or prequel to Gotham, "so don’t look for familiar villains or allies."
The description for the show states: In Pennyworth, we get to know Alfred (Jack Bannon) when he’s a twentysomething former SAS officer who forms a security company and winds up working with a young Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) in 1960s London. The series also stars recording artist Paloma Faith, Jason Flemyng (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), Ryan Fletcher (Outlander), Hainsley Lloyd Bennett (Eastenders), Emma Paetz (Gentleman Jack) and Polly Walker (The Mentalist, Rome).
Further details include that it has been said to be R-rated and will be ten episodes airing on EPIX.
“It’s twentysomething years before Gotham, it’s a very different world; this is the DC version of 1960s London,” Executive producer Danny Cannon recently said. “13 degrees history is different: It’s not the England we know. It looks and feels like, but if you look a little closer, (you ask) why is that like that? Why is that building there? What war is he talking about?”
The series premiers Summer 2019.
