It’s been a few years since Showtime aired “Penny Dreadful” and I admit that the re-appearance of the franchise in a sequel of sorts took me a bit by surprise. This new series takes place many years later so let’s take a look at the first teaser clip from it.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks to be interesting and I guess I will be keeping my Showtime subscription just a little bit longer. I was planning on cancelling once “Ray Donovan” had ended but now I have this to tune into. As you know I keep it brief during teasers but will speak more once a longer clip is revealed. You folks don’t have to wait of course and can chime in at your leisure. See you next time.
