HBO Max is putting an end to Pennyworth, cancelling the Batman prequel series after three seasons. Deadline reports that the streaming service has decided not to renew the show for a fourth run.

The show ran for two seasons on Epix and, when the cable channel cancelled it, HBO came in to save the show for its third season that aired from October to November. The decision to cancel the show comes after James Gunn and Peter Safran unveiled their plans for the DC Universe going forward. Also cancelled recently were HBO Max’s Titans and Doom Patrol, which are coming to an end after four seasons.

An HBO Max spokesperson said:

“While HBO Max is not moving forward with another season of Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler, we are very thankful to creator Bruno Heller and executive producers Matthew Patnick, Danny Cannon and John Stephens, along with Warner Bros. Television, for their brilliant, unique, gripping depiction of the origin of Alfred Pennyworth, one of the most iconic characters in the Batman world. An incredible blend of action, drama and humor, for three seasons, Pennyworth: The Origin of Batman’s Butler has taken fans on a mind-bending ride into Alfred’s eccentric world and the beginnings of cutting-edge super heroes and super villains.”
