By September 2021, HBO Max was in development on another spin-off series from Reeves and Clark, this one focusing on the Penguin. Lauren LeFranc was hired to write the series, and Farrell had been approached about reprising his role from the film though no deal had been made.[2] It was compared to the film Scarface (1983).[4]

On December 6, 2021, Variety reported that Colin Farrell had signed on to reprise the role of Penguin and would executive produce the series.[3]

On March 9, 2022, The Hollywood Reporter announced that HBO Max has ordered a straight-to-limited-series order for The Penguin, confirming the title and Lauren LeFranc as the series writer and showrunner.[5] On March 25, the series was confirmed to begin production in Los Angeles on June 15.[6]
