It was just about a month ago when we shared the Second Season Official Trailer for the Epix Original series “Pennyworth”. It was a pretty exciting clip so if you missed it just click HERE to be up to speed. The show begins its weekly airing on that premium cable network today so let’s review the show poster, premise and casting before my editorial closing thoughts.
The Premise: Pennyworth explores the early life of the titular Wayne family butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier who is forming his own security company in an alternate London which combines aspects of London in the 1950s and 1960s with invented events and practices (for example, televised public executions). Alfred becomes a target of the Raven Society, a group conspiring to take over the British government, and begins working against them alongside American agents of the No Name League, Thomas Wayne and Martha Kane, the future parents of Bruce Wayne/Batman.
The Cast and Characters:
Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth
Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne
Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy
Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza
Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes
Jason Flemyng as Lord Harwood
Emma Paetz as Martha Kane
Polly Walker as Peggy Sykes
Jessica Ellerby as The Queen
Danny Webb as John Ripper
Richard Clothier as the Prime Minister.
Saikat Ahamed as Mr. Chadley
Ramon Tikaram as Detective Inspector Aziz
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’ve already pointed out in the trailer post, we do not currently have the Epix network as a part of our monthly cable subscription. We have HBO, Showtime and a super fast Internet connection on top of the Netflix and Disney+ package so we had to hold back on anything extra. I also mused that I hoped we would find this on Netflix or something else that we are paying for since I liked the look of the series and am really curious. What about you readers? Do you have Epix? Did you watch/like the first season? Chime in down below and I will see you next time.
