What do you think? Are you a fan of Penny Dreadful? Will you watch City of Angels?
Loved Original series, hope going in a new direction/timeline with all new cast works out. I will tune in…
I liked the series, but the story line went kind of off. Why not do the new series the way American Horror Stories does their’s ? With the same actor’s but a new story each season.
Penny Dreadful was okay. We’ll see what the new series brings.
