Pennyworth is returning for Season 3 and it has been given a shiny new title, Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman's Butler, in case anyone was confused what it was about.

The origin series, set in 1960s London, is based on DC characters that centre around former British SAS soldier Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon) who goes to work for billionaire Thomas Wayne (Ben Aldridge) and his wife Martha (Emma Paetz) decades before they become parents to Bruce Wayne.

So what's in store for season three? The psychological thriller 'begins after a five-year time jump: the civil war is over, and a cultural revolution has changed the world for better or worse – ushering in a new age of Super Heroes and Supervillains'.

Fans commented: "I'm thrilled and counting down the days!"

A second penned: "Was super surprised by this show. Its really good and love that its gritty and for adults!"

A third praised: "This show is awesome. Cant wait for s3."

The pre-Batman series stars Paloma Faith (Bet Sykes), Ryan Fletcher (Dave Boy), Dorothy Atkinson (Mary Pennyworth), Ramon Tikaram (Inspector Victor Aziz), Harriet Slater (Sandra Onslow) and Simon Manyonda (Lucius Fox).

Season 3 is set to air in October on HBO Max.
