Upcoming Season Details
There are no news about Pennyworth season 3 yet. However, it’s likely that the show would be moving to HBO Max for its upcoming season. Warner Bros.. TV is currently is negotiating a deal to flow season 1 and season 2 on HBO Max. Also, this deal will give Epix the advantage to rerun season 3 when it’s made.
It is not in any way a surprise that HBO Max is trying to snag the string since it’s home to most DC-related content, trying to make sure that it is the only real home for whatever is linked to the DCEU franchise. However, there is no certainty that these would be the situation. It’ll be unhappy if the series is canceled as the series is doing fairly well in terms of its storyline and it’ll be really exciting to find out what next might be possible.
