Despite the involvement of several alums, the series is not a spinoff of Gotham, which was recently renewed for its final season (see “The Renewed, The Cancelled, The Rebooted: 'Gotham,' 'Lost in Space,' 'iZombie,' 'The Expanse,' 'Charmed,' 'Star Wars,' and More”). Pennyworth will be a prequel set in 1960s London that will explore Alfred’s past as a British SAS soldier and the beginning of his relationship with Bruce Wayne’s father, Thomas. This means Sean Pertwee, a standout as Alfred in Gotham (see “Casting Updates for 'Gotham'”), isn’t involved. But it does look like we'll get to see Alfred in deadly action mode.
