The Season Three trailer for the Showtime Original Series “Penny Dreadful” has begun making the rounds and since we have been watching it over at the Creative Command HQ, I wanted to be sure to post something for you to see it as well. You’ll need a subscription to Showtime to be able to check out the whole series and I think that there is a mobile device streaming service available as well which works like HBO Go. I don’t know too much about those services offhand so you will need to do some digging on your own time. Here’s the trailer.

The Premise:
Penny Dreadful is a British–American horror drama television series created and written by John Logan, who serves as executive producer along with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris. The title refers to the penny dreadfuls, a type of 19th-century cheap British fiction publication with lurid and sensational subject matter. The series draws upon many public-domain characters from 19th-century Irish and British fiction, including Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, Mina Harker and Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Victor Frankenstein and his monster from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and Dr. Henry Jekyll from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Looks good to me, but as I mentioned already I have been enjoying this show for the past two seasons. I’ll be programming my DVR to capture the show as soon as I finish this narrative and press “Publish” and if you like this kind of horror intrigue then I suggest that you do the same. Let me know what you think of this new season trailer in the comments below.
