Showtime Greenlights Penny Dreadful Sequel Series
After a three-year hiatus, Penny Dreadful will be returning to TV. Per Variety, Showtime has ordered a sequel to the acclaimed horror series, which aired for three seasons from 2014 to 2016.

Three-time Oscar nominee John Logan is returning as showrunner for the follow-up series, titled Penny Dreadful: City of Angels. The original series was set in London at the turn of the 20th century and featured appearances by familiar faces from Victorian literature. That included Count Dracula, Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his monster, Dorian Gray, and even Dr. Henry Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Reeve Carney headlined the show. However, none of these performers are likely to come back for the revival.

Logan explained that the new series will jump forward a few decades and tell stories derived from Mexican-American folklore. “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will have a social consciousness and historical awareness that we chose not to explore in the Penny Dreadful London storylines. We will now be grappling with specific historical and real world political, religious, social and racial issues. In 1938, Los Angeles was facing some hard questions about its future and its soul. Our characters must do the same. There are no easy answers. There are only powerful questions and arresting moral challenges. As always in the world of Penny Dreadful, there are no heroes or villains in this world, only protagonists and antagonists; complicated and conflicted characters living on the fulcrum of moral choice.”

City of Angels will begin production in 2019. Are you excited for the about series’ upcoming revival? Would you like to see Ethan Chandler or Dorian Gray return for this sequel? Tell us what you think in the comment section below!

 Penny Dreadful 309 Finale Josh Hartnett & Eva Green
Showtime

“Penny Dreadful” may have had a pretty definitive end, but a new beginning is on the way.

Showtime revealed that a spiritual successor, “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels,” is in the works at the network. Switching the story’s venue from England to 1930s Los Angeles, the show will be “rooted in the conflict between characters connected to the deity Santa Muerte and others allied with the Devil,” per Thursday’s announcement.

Although not a strict reboot of the series, “City of Angels” will share more than just a title with its predecessor: Series creator and writer John Logan will be at the helm of this new venture as well. Whether any of the old cast will return for new roles is still uncertain.

Back in June 2016, “Penny Dreadful” ended its third season with the surprise reveal that the show would not be returning. The pivotal character death at the close of that finale likely made this jump in time and location a little easier.

Logan said that the new setting and environment would give the series a chance to incorporate and address social components that the original series’ Victorian setting couldn’t. “We will now be grappling with specific historical and real world political, religious, social, and racial issues. In 1938, Los Angeles was facing some hard questions about its future and its soul. Our characters must do the same,” Logan said.

The series is aiming for a production start sometime in 2019. It’s the latest addition to an ambitious slate for the network in the coming year, one that also includes the Wall Street collapse comedy “Black Monday,” a massive adaptation of the “Halo” video game franchise, and the upcoming limited series based on the life and career of former Fox News head Roger Ailes.
