The Penguin is the first spin-off show from The Batman, a crime drama. Batman premiered on March 4, 2022, and was an instant success for DC. Also, after the film’s success, Matt Reeves began his journey to create his own space in the DC universe by interconnecting different projects, including Batman characters. Colin Farrell is one of the most loved characters from Batman, who played the foul-mouthed Penguin. The dark humor, intense makeup, and perfect performance won the hearts of the fans.
It is why the character is getting its very own show, The Penguin. If you have loved the character from the film and are now excited about the show, keep reading.
The Penguin: Release Date
We know that The Penguin is confirmed. However, the makers still need to drop an official release date for the show. Fortunately, during a recent interview, Colin Farrell revealed that the show’s production started rolling in February. The filming is taking place in New York City and will take up to six months to end. According to sources, the most probable release date for The Penguin lies in early 2024. Therefore, the fans must wait for some time before treating their eyes to the show.
Colin Farell will, of course, be the protagonist of the show. In addition to Colin Farell, here is the list of the other cast:
- Cristin Milioti as Sofia Falcone (daughter of Carmine Falcone)
- Michael Kelly
- Shohreh Aghdashloo
- Deidre O’Connell
- Clancy Brown
We will update the list if any new actors or actresses join the cast list. Matt Reeves is the show’s executive producer, with Dylan Clark, his production partner.
The Penguin: The Plot
Matt Reeves confirmed that The Penguin would pick the story from where the things were left in The Batman. So, it is safe to assume that The Penguin will lead directly to The Batman: Part Two, which is interesting. In the show, Colin Farrell’s Penguin will engage in a power plan to control the reign of Gotham. But, of course, we are talking about the crime world!

The official synopsis of the show has yet to be out. However, Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max head of originals, has shed some light on the show’s plot. Sarah revealed that the ultimate goal of The Penguin is to show the viewers the life of Oz along with the crimes happening in Gotham streets. The viewers will see The Penguin as a hustler with a strategic mind.
Furthermore, the show will feature eight episodes filled with interesting twists and turns and new characters. Also, much of the focus will rely on the street level in the front because Batman isn’t here to show his flying skills.
Is There A Trailer For The Penguin?
The production of the show is yet to begin. Hence, it is too early for a trailer. The filming of the show began in February, and it will take several months before the shooting of the show is complete. We expect a teaser only after the shooting is wrapped up with little editing. Therefore, the earliest we can see a teaser of The Penguin is this year’s end.
Where To Watch The Show?
Once released, the viewers can watch The Penguin on HBO Max. Therefore, if things go according to plans, you can expect the show to hit the screen in early 2024.
We will update you with more information on The Penguin as soon as it starts rolling in. So, remember to stay tuned with us!
