I flipping loved Penny Dreadful, and was most annoyed when it was cancelled, meaning that they had to rather rush the finale. However, we have Showtime’s follow-up series Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels coming up from creator John Logan, and the first trailer has been released.
1938 Los Angeles; a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega is embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
The series stars Natalie Dormer, Kerry Bishé, Adriana Barraza, Rory Kinnear, Jessica Garza, Johnathan Nieves, Nathan Lane, Amy Madigan, Brent Spiner, Lorenza Izzo, Adam Rodriguez, Thomas Kretschmann, Dominic Sherwood, Ethan Peck, Michael Gladis, Daniel Zovatto, and Lin Shaye. John Logan executive produces with Michael Aguilaris and Sam Mendes.
It premieres in the USA on Sunday, April 26. We’ll let you know the UK premiere date when we know!
