Penny Dreadful Brings Human Antagonist To Season 2, May Also Visit Dr. Moreau image
Luckily, creator and showrunner John Logan (Skyfall) has spent the better part of a decade creating this world in his mind, and he let Comic-Con fans know that Season 2 will be much larger, expanding some of those stories, while also bringing a familiar human character to head the antagonistic front.

Penny Dreadful Will Return For A Sex-And-Blood-Soaked Season 2 image
If you’ve been watching Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, you’re privy to the deliciously evil sex and violence that its characters are embedded in. Fans should be happy to hear that 2015 is going to be even more lust-filled and bloodied, as Showtime has renewed Penny Dreadful for Season 2.

Penny Dreadful Review: Literary Horror Gets A Sharp And Sensuous Facelift image
The past few years of horror’s televised resurgence have given us the tension-stuffed realism of NBC’s Hannibal and the absurdist camp of FX’s American Horror Story, and after watching the first two episodes of Showtime’s gothic literary mash-up Penny Dreadful, I’m nearly convinced that this is the best of the bunch.

Penny Dreadful Digs Up Cast Photo, Posters And Behind The Scenes Video image
It isn’t often TV audiences get to travel back to Victorian London, and when we do, the context is more often than not a drama that Jane Austen either wrote or could easily have written without anyone thinking different.

Penny Dreadful Full-Length Trailer Will Overstimulate You With Horrors image
Penny Dreadful is slowly turning itself into one of our most anticipated new series to uncover. The latest, fullest (finally!) trailer for the Showtime series gives us a bit more than the creeps — and, at long last, actually gives us a look at the full cast (Look! There’s Reeve Carney! I spy a Billie Piper!) and horrifically unsettling storyline we're about to encounter. Things are about to go bump in the night.

Penny Dreadful Behind The Scenes Video Highlights Series' Intricate Visual Delights image
The amount of work that goes into a television series is truly awe-inspiring. There is so much more at play than just the actors, writers, and directors involved, as evidenced by Showtime’s latest production blog for their upcoming series, Penny Dreadful. Truly, a show this intricately placed in time, with the added pressure of being accurately creepy and unsettling takes many hands. And it’s a totally radical sight to see.

Holy [BLEEP] The New Penny Dreadful Trailer Is Unsettling image
Well if the previously released teasers for Showtime’s upcoming genre drama, Penny Dreadful weren't enough to spook you, allow us to introduce you to another — one that’s sure to make you mutter and yelp things you'd be less than inclined to expose your grandparents to, if they're the type that are faint of heart. Because, hooo lawdy, does this show pump that creep factor up to eleven, my friends. To have a Jessie Spano moment for a second: we're so excited, we're so scared!

Californication Season 7 Premiere Date Set, Also Nurse Jackie And Penny Dreadful image
Just the other day, when we were sharing the newly released trailer for the seventh and final season of Californication, we were pondering whether or not Showtime still planned on getting the comedy back on the air in April as expected.

Penny Dreadful And Wayward Pines Unveil First Images Of People Standing Around image
As a horror fan, I consider myself spoiled by the wealth of television series that are giving the genre its due attention. Two of the most intriguing upcoming projects are Showtime’s literary mash-up Penny Dreadful and Fox’s small town thrillerWayward Pines, created by M. Night Shyamalan and Chad Hodge. Intriguing doesn’t necessarily mean good, mind you, but there’s certainly less clear expectations going into these series than those that came attached to Hannibal and Dracula.

Showtime's Penny Dreadful Will Possess You With This New Teaser image
From what we know about Penny Dreadful, which admittedly isn’t much, literary beasts such as Dracula and Dorian Gray are running amok in London at the end of the 19th century. But there hasn’t been any sign that either religion or any satanic forces would come into play. Yet in the teaser above, we see Eva Green’s character Vanessa Ives praying in front of a crucifix on the wall – plus candles, since you can’t pray without candles – until she is apparently taken over by a most unholy spirit, as depicted by entirely white eyeballs and the on-the-nose quote “We all have our demons.”

Showtime's Penny Dreadful Debuts Monstrous First Teaser image
It’s being heavily promoted as a psychosexual horror series, and while I don’t necessarily understand what could possibly be sexual about Frankenstein’s creature, but Count Dracula is probably a swinging young chap, and Dorian Grey’s life is filled with lustful decadence. I wasn’t even aware the Wolfman was a part of this flick.

Timothy Dalton Joins Penny Dreadful At Showtime image
License to Kill actor Timothy Dalton hasn’t had a big TV gig since he popped up on Chuck several seasons ago. Whether by choice or circumstance, he hasn’t worked nearly as frequently, but that’s all about to change. He just found a new project in Showtime’s new series, Penny Dreadful, which is headed to the subscription cable network sometime in 2014.
