Back in March, I shared the full trailer for the next chapter in the “Penny Dreadful” franchise with “Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels”. If you didn’t see that already just click HERE to be up to speed. That series begins tonight for those who are subscribers to the Showtime Network so if you don’t have it you will need to buddy up with someone who does. I’ve shared the official poster, premise and casting down below for your pleasure. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: At the time of this writing I still am a subscriber to Showtime and I thought I was going to end it once “Ray Donovan” was over but I decided to keep it for good measure. I’m going to program the series since I’d rather binge a few of them at a time. Sure we are under quarantine and there isn’t anything open to go to but I’ve enjoyed spending my evenings catching up with friends on Zoom or on Facebook chats if not via the conventional and seemingly arcane method of the phone. This looks interesting based on that last trailer that we ran and I did enjoy the original series. Maybe I will binge watch that again via their Showtime Anytime service. What do you think my friends? Do you have this service and will you be watching? Or will you be braving that “outside” to try and see at a friends house? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
