Only four episodes into the first season of the Victorian-era showstopper Penny Dreadful, Showtime has cheerfully announced a second season. The show features classic characters of the original quick literature of London, penny dreadfuls. These stories were cheap and often terrifying tales meant to scare children and those at the workhouse straight. Showtime’s Penny Dreadful features famous characters such as Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein, as well as the talented Eva Green as the woman who can see between worlds, Vanessa Ives.
We at FangirlNation are breathing a sigh of relief in our corsets now.
