'Pennyworth' Season 2 Trailer: Thomas Wayne and Martha Get Hot and Heavy (Video)

In case you forgot baby Bruce was on the way

In case you forgot that “Pennyworth” Season 2 will see the conception of baby Bruce Wayne, the trailer features some steamy scenes between Batman’s future parents Thomas Wayne and Martha Kane.

Epix released the trailer for the second season on Tuesday, which you can watch here.

Martha’s upcoming pregnancy was revealed during a DC FanDome panel back in September. But as of Season 1, she and Thomas haven’t married yet — actually, last we checked Thomas was bleeding out on Martha’ couch.

But “Pennyworth” and “Gotham” boss Bruno Heller has confirmed that Thomas will survive the minor flesh wound and live on to sire the Batman.

Heller and Ben Aldridge, who plays Thomas Wayne, also revealed during a New York Comic-Con virtual panel in October that Thomas will have to free himself from an engagement forced upon him by his family at the beginning of Season 2 before he can make things official with Martha.

The Season 2 trailer also hints at some romance for our pal Alfred Pennyworth (Jack Bannon), some more maniacal nonsense from Bette Sykes (Paloma Faith) and the noseless yet determined leader of the neo-fascist Raven Union, Lord Harwood (Jason Flemyng). And, of course, Alfred will also have to deal with the fact that at the end of Season 1, he blew up his own dad — even if it was for the greater good.

Watch the trailer above.

  • To so many viewers, he felt like a member of the family — “I’ve been on the air for fifty years, so I’m like a member of the family,” Trebek once said, according to Rogak. Added said Jonah Engel Bromwich, a domestic correspondent with The New York Times: “When you arrive in a hotel room where you have no real sense of where you are, turning Jeopardy! on is always kind of a grounding experience.”

  • His “everyman” attitude– Most days he drove a half-­ton Dodge Ram 1500 pickup to the studio, and loved to do his own handiwork around the house — his garage was so full to the brim with tools that it didn’t leave room for a car, according to Rogak.

  • His presence in pop culture — In 1988 he guest-starred opposite Vicki Lawrence, whom he was dating at the time, in an episode of “Mama’s Family” — a spinoff from “The Carol Burnett Show.” Trebek also played himself on “Cheers,” “The Golden Girls,” “The Larry Sanders Show,” and in movies like “Rain Man” and “White Men Can’t Jump.” He even appeared on “Saturday Night Live.”

  • His curiosity and appreciation for the arts — Although he had no training in classical music, he loved opera and orchestral music. He was known to narrate concert pieces like Saint-­Saens’s Carnival of the Animals and Peter and the Wolf by Prokofiev, and once participated in the Austin Lyric Opera’s 1989 production of “La Cenerentola.”

  • His zingers — Known as a very witty host, Trebek was not afraid to joke with contestants. In 2016, he threw a sick burn at a woman who described people who listen to “nerdcore hip-hop.” “Losers, in other words,” Trebek joked.

  • His attempts at rapping — Trebek and “Jeopardy!’ were always game to roll with the times, and that included his hilarious attempts at rapping lyrics by Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West and other contemporary rap artists as part of the show’s rap category.

  • His mustache — Fans have always been very passionate about Trebek’s facial hair, particularly his iconic stache. In 2018, “Jeopardy!” did a Twitter poll asking fans whether he should grow them out or shave, and although the overwhelming answer was to keep them, he ended up going clean-shaven.

  • His big heart — Trebek and his wife Jean were known to make many charitable donations, and in 2011, they launched the Trebek Family Foundation.
