Penny Dreadful: City of Angels announced


Halloween may be over but Showtime have given us one extra treat announcing spin-off series Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.

“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,” John Logan said.

“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.”

Penny Dreadful was surprisingly cancelled in 2016 following the conclusion of the third season, which saw the death of Vanessa Ives (Eva Green).

It also starred Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Rory Kinnear and Reeve Carney with a mix of gothic monsters featured throughout, including Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster and witches.

Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will begin production in 2019.

You can stream seasons 1-3 of Penny Dreadful on Netflix now.
