THE PENGUIN: SKY ACQUIRE THE BATMAN SPIN-OFF

Sky announced that The Penguin, a prestige drama series starring Colin Farrell which continues the epic The Batman crime saga which filmmaker Matt Reeves began with the global blockbuster movie, will be coming exclusively to Sky and streaming service NOW.  



This eight-part Warner Bros. Television and DC Studios drama series stars Farrell as the title character, reprising his role from the film. The Penguin is set to air later in 2024.



UK comic fans will be able to join in on the global hype, with each episode airing at the same time as the US each week and on demand thereafter.


Starring alongside Farrell, the confirmed cast includes: Cristin Milioti, Rhenzy Feliz, Michael Kelly, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Deirdre O’Connell, Clancy Brown, and Michael Zegen.


The series is executive produced by Matt Reeves, Dylan Clark, Colin Farrell, Lauren LeFranc, who writes and serves as showrunner, Craig Zobel, who directs the first three episodes, Bill Carraro, and Daniel Pipski.



Based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, The Penguin is produced by Reeves’ 6th & Idaho Productions and Dylan Clark Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, where Reeves and 6th & Idaho are under an overall deal.


Commenting on the news Lucy Criddle, Sky Director of Acquisitions and Strategic Projects, said: "The Penguin is an outstanding addition to our growing comic slate of films and series. With the grimy world of Gotham City amidst chaos, the story continues The Batman epic crime saga and I’m excited to see Farrell take this iconic character to new heights in this eight-part limited drama series.”


Comic fans can already enjoy a range of films and series on Sky and NOW including Justice League, Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, and many more.

The Penguin will be available exclusively on Sky Atlantic and streaming service NOW later this year.
