[SPOILERS AHEAD] Earlier we reported that Penny Dreadful has officially ended after three seasons. Recently, Showtime chief David Nevins discussed a possible spin-off series with The Hollywood Reporter.
Created by John Logan, the supernatural drama starred Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Billie Piper. The series finale aired last night on June 19th.
Speaking to THR, Nevins said the show may be over but a spin-off is always a possibility:
[As for spin-offs], anything is possible at any time. We’re staying close to John [who has an overall deal with Showtime] — he’s deep into Just Kids with Patti Smith, which is going to be amazing. It’s going to be really singular and an interesting relationship with two great characters at the center of it. That’s where TV is. Fortunately we have a very strong core of shows. Penny Dreadful will be missed, but our core is strong and the things that are upcoming are strong. And John is going to be a big part of it. We’ll be his television home for a long time. “
What do you think? Are you a fan of Penny Dreadful? Would you like to see a spin-off?
Loved Penny Dreadful and was heartbroken to see it end, shocked that it did so a spin off would be great to see!
A spin-off would be awesome! Penny Dreadful is the reason I subscribed to Showtime, so I would love to see it continue on in one form or another.
I can’t believe its over , I lovevJosh Hartnet and ally of them they are AOL amazing actor’s. I will miss this show and I hope they come back with a spin off . I with you all well. Jacolene, from Napa Valley, California
Yes a spin off would be great, please do some. Would like to see more of Dr Jekyll. New characters and stores. The Victorian Era is great, so are lots of other earlier time periods.
As much as I liked the Vanessa Ives character, that show could have easily gone on with the wealth of solid and interesting characters. And all the places they could go outside of Victorian London. So, a spin off would definitely work for me.
Please keep penny dreadful. I cried for an hour about Vanessa. Please. I love this show.
Please bring back penny dreadful they can totally do it sans Vanessa
yes absolutely!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!
Yes please! I even think Vanessa could be revived. Was she even a vampire? So many questions. Disheartened that Showtime cancelled this beloved series. The whole show focused on this battle of good vs evil with Vanessa and we don’t even get a glimpse of her dark reign. Left me wanting for so much more. A spinoff to perhaps earlier days or anything would be a more welcome resolution than the abrupt finale leashed upon us. I will definitely be cancelling my Showtime subscription after this move and would encourage all to do the same. Obviously the big wigs there… Read more »
Me too !!!!? I can’t believe its gone everyone I know watched it and say a spin off would really work there’s plenty of stories to spin . Why are did they get canceled??? . they were just getting started with all the back stories.
The ending was classy and poignant but undeniably a bit brief. However, tying up loose ends with all the characters must have been challenging. I would like to see Ethan, Sir Malcom and Victor and the remaining others in a spin-off, but it may be better to walk out in style and let them rest in peace.
the cancellation maybe was the finale of Logan´s story but was a botched job , and a lazy writting in the finale.
