It is being reported that Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman's Butler has been cancelled by HBO Max after three seasons. The move comes two months after the drama wrapped its now-final run, which was its first season on the streaming service after moving from original network Epix in 2022.

Just last week, HBO Max also announced that fellow DC series 'Doom Patrol' and 'Titans' would also be ending after their current seasons.

Taking place in 1960s London, Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman's Butler follows former British SAS soldier Alfred Pennyworth, who forms a security company with billionaire Thomas Wayne. It is these roots that lay the groundwork for Alfred to eventually serve as the loyal butler of a young Bruce Wayne, and to later work alongside him when he grows up to become the superhero known as Batman.
