It’s been a couple of years since it was announced that The Penguin, the drama series spinoff of director Matt Reeve’s film The Batman, would be coming to HBO Max. With actor Colin Ferrell reprising his role as the criminal Oz Cobb/The Penguin, whose presence in Gotham City makes the already seedy urban area all the more seedy. While we still don’t have a date for a premiere, we now today from a trailer and press release from HBO that The Penguin will take flight this fall. The trailer below is giving vibes that the series will have the same feel as shows like HBO’s The Sopranos.



Just recently, it was announced that the release date for The Batman II was moved to October 2, 2026. For more on The Penguin, check out the press release below.
