'Penny Dreadful' Renewed for Second Season By Showtime!

Penny Dreadful has been renewed for season two by Showtime – and even better – the network has promised a 10 episode season!

“We were trying to do something a little different for Showtime and find a show that would re-establish us with passionate genre fans in the post-’Dexter’ era,” Showtime’s David Nevins told Variety. “It feels like we’re hitting on both levels with a show that has deep, rich, complicated characters and interesting psychology and the genre component. The world of the show is just getting deeper and richer. John Logan has incredible ideas that are just starting to be exposed. I can’t wait to see how it evolves in season two.”

“We’re seeing more 18-34 demographic numbers with this show than we’re used to,” he added. “The show is being consumed differently than other shows — a higher percentage of its viewership is on-demand and authenticated.”

The second season is expected next year. Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, and more star.
