Penny Dreadful sequel comic

The Penny Dreadful series finale is a bit of a disappointment. Not because fans didn’t know the season three finale was actually the series finale until the end credits, but because the show rushes a little towards the finish line. A few storylines and subplots, like which side Ethan Chandler chooses, feel incomplete. The final moments of the series are emotional, but are they earned? Yes, for the most part, but the ending of John Logan‘s beautiful show still leaves you wanting more. Thankfully, for those of us fans who want to spend more time in this world, we’ll have the opportunity to do so with the Penny Dreadful sequel comic coming from Titan Comic Books.

Below, learn more about the Penny Dreadful sequel comic.

penny dreadful cancelled

Showtime‘s Penny Dreadful has been sitting at the top of my “Man, I really should get around to catching up on that soon” list for longer than I’d like to admit. I watched the first season and found it to be a dark and delightful riff on classic horror icons, a gothic but humane reinterpretation of the Universal monster formula that had no right to work as well as it did. And now, I know exactly how many episodes I have left in the queue, as the series’ third season finale was also a surprise series finale. Apparently, the words “The End” flashed across the screen and everything, making it all very definitive.

penny returns

“Embrace your dark side,” the Penny Dreadful season three trailer exclaims. Not a bad tagline for a show about battling internal and external evil forces. The ways in which the characters confront or accept their dark sides has always been one of the main draws of the Showtime series. Showrunner John Logan and everyone involved have got the monsters and set pieces down by now, but it’s the characters that keep me hooked.

Penny Dreadful returns this summer, and you can watch the Penny Dreadful season 3 trailer below.
