    I’d be interested to find out when this premieres because I have a suspicion they’ll be pairing it with Twin Peaks and I really really want to know when that will start.

    I’m SO happy. Now that I know Season 3 is set, that means we’ll for sure find out about Ethan’s dad and whatever it is Sembene did before he met Sir Malcolm!

    -1 from the current number of episodes in season 2. Odd.

    • Tim says:

      I know. from 8 to 10 to 9 episodes.

    • Ari says:

      I’ve noticed Penny Dreadful doesn’t seem to have a hard-set number of minutes-per-episode like many other shows do. I suspect their contracts are for total minutes/hours and nine gives them some flexibility.

    • ? says:

      It’s probably due to availability. It seems to be shot on the British television model rather than the American one.

  4. Joey says:

    One of my absolute favorite shows on TV right now. I’m ecstatic.

    Best news I’ve heard today. Penny Dreadful brings class and grandeur to otherwise inane TV these days.

  11. LAwoman says:

    This is great news! it’s one of my favorite shows and the cast is wonderful.

  12. Jen says:

    I’d like for them to have Dr.Jekyll as foe. He was a character around in that time and would make a great adversary.

  13. CourtTV says:

    This show is so good. I agree with Ausiello: Penny Dreadful > GoT

    The scene in “little scorpion” after the fire was the most passionate love scene that I have witnessed in along time. what beautiful love scene acting.

  16. Margarethe says:

    Only nine episodes? Was so excited to get ten this year! This show astounds me. I can’t believe how many people I know won’t watch it because “it has a stupid name.” Yeah, I know.
