Pennyworth Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
Season two was renewed last year in October, and the shoot begun in January 2020. Since many productions had to shut down due to the Covid-19, many series’ release date was affected. It is unclear whether this show was affected or not. Epix has not mentioned a specific release date so far.
However, it was set to be released towards the end of 2020. Since there has been no indication of delay, there is a possibility that we may see the show towards the end of 2020. (check: Doom Patrol Season 3: Release Date, Renewal Status And Everything We Know So Far.)

Pennyworth Plot: What is the show about?
Pennyworth revolves around the early life of Alfred Pennyworth, who is a former British SAS soldier. He works on forming his own security company. At the same time, he becomes a target of the Raven Society. This group wants to take over the British Government. Soon he finds himself in the middle of a conflict that revolves around the Queen of England, the British Government, the CIA, and two revolutionary groups.
The journey of Alfred is filled up with many hardships. He has already witnessed Esme’s death, his fiancé. He has already come across Bruce Wayne’s parents – Thomas and Martha. In the first installment, we saw how he developed/started his relationships with these characters, and what role they play into his story.
What will Pennyworth season 2 be about? Plot/Storyline
Season two will likely revolve around Alfred facing new enemies. It may explore Thomas and Martha’s relationship further. At the end of the first installment, we also saw that Alfred had slept with the Queen of England; we will likely see its consequences.
What happened between Martha and the Satanist cult leader may finally be revealed. Nonetheless, we will see more conflicts in Alfred’s life. However, he still has a long way to go until he becomes Batman’s butler. (check: Dark Season 4 Release Date, Renewal Status: Will the show wrap-up with three installments?.)
