With Gotham having finished its run, showrunner Bruno Heller has turned his attention to Pennyworth, a series that, although it is said to be in the same universe as Gotham, isn’t necessarily a prequel to it. It does seem to give us an origin story of sorts for Alfred Pennyworth, the Wayne family’s trusted butler. Jack Bannon will play the character on the show, and the thing he’s been most impressed with has been how Heller’s scripts have brought young Pennyworth’s world to life in such vivid, twisted ways.

Pennyworth will premiere July 28 on Epix.
