With production underway on the second season of Epix's Pennyworth, we have some major intel on who will be joining Jack Bannon in the Warner Horizon Scripted Television series. New additions James Purefoy (The Following, Sex Education), Edward Hogg (Taboo, Harlots), and Jessye Romeo (Curfew, In the Long Run) have all been cast in series regular roles. Ramon Tikaram (Brassic, The Victim) and Harriet Slater (Faunutland and the Lost Magic) are being promoted from recurring status to series regular roles.
When the series returns possibly this summer, Bannon will be joined by returning cast members Emma Paetz, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett, Ryan Fletcher, Dorothy Atkinson, Polly Walker, Jason Flemyng, and Paloma Faith.
● Purefoy's Captain Gulliver Troy is Alfie's former SAS Captain – a charismatic, cultured brute and a powerful man of appetites – whether that be drink, women or danger.
● Hogg's Colonel Salt is would-be despot masquerading as an obedient civil servant – a calculating killer, whether by pen or sword.
● Romeo's Katie Browning is n idealistic art student whose life is uprooted by civil war – righteous, defiant and wonderfully naive.
● Tikaram's Inspector Victor Aziz returns, keeping his clear head and dry wit even as London descends into chaos.
● Slater's Sandra Onslow returns as Alfie's on-again-off-again girlfriend, Sandra – now resident singer in his club, with dreams of becoming the next Sandie Shaw.
