We’ve been talking about SHOWTIME’s Penny Dreadful a little before the season three premiere. Extolling the virtues of this terrific series, Penny Dreadful has managed a respectful balance of honoring the iconic literary origins of the classic monsters while also paying homage to the beloved Universal Monsters movies that we’re all about. If you love the classic monsters, then you’ll greatly enjoy Penny Dreadful.
This week is the season three finale of Penny Dreadful and it’s bittersweet for a few reasons. SHOWTIME has yet to renew Penny Dreadful for a fourth season. This would mean no delivery of Mr. Hyde and the possibilities of season four introducing Imhotep, as the character Ferdinand Lyle was last seen headed off to Cairo to explore that very tomb. The season finale is always tough for devoted fans as it means saying goodbye to characters and stories for a temporary hiatus. And, if this is it, we really hope Penny Dreadful delivers with “Perpetual Night” and “The Blessed Dark.”
We proudly have three clips ahead of the season finale, courtesy of SHOWTIME. And, if you love the Universal Monsters – of course you do, you’re on this site 😉 – then be sure to watch the second clip entitled “The Creatures of the Night.” I don’t think we need to explain why.
Penny Dreadful airs Sunday nights at 10 PM ET on SHOWTIME. Check your local listings.
