Starring Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green, Penny Dreadful will go into production in Dublin once again later this year and return some time next year.

Said Showtime President David veins in a statement:

"Picking up PENNY DREADFUL was one of the easiest decisions I’ve made. The series has had worldwide impact, drawing big, passionate audiences on both sides of the Atlantic, and more than any other show on our network has hit the bullseye with viewers who want to watch television in all the new ways that are available.  

"John Logan has deftly created an epic series that has drawn raves from a wide-range of audiences from quality drama lovers to critics, to hardcore genre fans. We look forward to working once again with our partners at Sky Atlantic and are extremely excited for what’s in store for season two."

Penny Dreadful Quotes

Master, my beloved Lucifer. I have found her for you and she shall be yours. I shall assault her days and her nights. Her dreams and her prayers. No corner of her soul shall be safe. Every beat of her heart, she shall know only suffering. I will not fail you. I will not fail you. I will not fail you.

Evelyn Poole

And now the rest of the tale. So we were cleaved apart; two brothers cast out to two realms. One brother to Earth and the other brother to Hell. And thus will be set in eternal enmity, my brother on Earth to feed on the blood of the living by night and myself in Hell to feed on the souls of the dead. Both in an eternal quest for the mother of evil.
