Just in case fans weren't sure what the heck the term was, Pennyworth had a new subtitle.
The now-hBO Max show released a teaser for season 3 earlier this week (August 10), revealing plenty of action for Alfred Pennyworth.
Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman's Butler is the new title for the show, which will premiere in October.
Fans have already taken to social media to reacted to the change, one tweeting: "Thanks for the clarification, I didn't know that the DC show Pennyworth was about Alfred Pennyworth, the butler of the famous DC Comics character Batman."
"Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman's Butler is the kind of title you end up with when two seasons pass and you realize that nobody but nerds on the internet knows that's what your show is about," another suggested.
"Baby Is The Hero Who's Parents Died and Now He's Vowed to Fight Crime in Gotham" (Not That Gotham, That One Didn't Pan Out Very Well, So We're Trying Something New) Coming this fall on HBOMax?
There's still a lot more doubt about the alteration:

Pennyworth, which has been broadcast since 2019 on Epix, focuses on Batman's butler, with Jack Bannon in the main role, although it will be moved to HBO Max for its third season.
After Gotham, producer Danny Cannon revealed that the show was not their first choice when looking for a new DC project.
"We just decided to postpone it because we wanted to expand their universe," he said of Gotham, DC.
Pennyworth season 3 will premiere on HBO Max in the United States from October. The show is broadcasted by StarzPlay in the United Kingdom.
