In the summer of 2016, the Penny Dreadful TV show ended without warning after three seasons on Showtime, because creator John Logan cancelled the psychological thriller, even though the season three closer was only billed as a “season” finale.
Fans who want more though, can rely on Titan Comics to ride to the rescue. The first issue, of what we like to think of as Penny Dreadful, season four, will be released on April 5, 2017. The Penny Dreadful TV series starred Reeve Carney, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Harry Treadaway, Josh Hartnett, Danny Sapani, Simon Russell Beale, Douglas Hodge, Sarah Greene, Jack Hickey, and Patti LuPone.
