While millions of eyes were glued to Game of Thrones on Sunday night, some of us were in the throes of watching Penny Dreadful wrap up its superb—and possibly final—season. Showtime aired the last two season-three episodes back-to-back, and they were frequently excellent hours that brought all the main characters together for sometimes surprising fates. WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW FOR THE SEASON (SERIES?) FINALE OF PENNY DREADFUL.
The beautiful pulp fiction that is Penny Dreadful returns for a third season on Showtime Sunday night. It comes back with a broader canvas (the American West as well as London, Zanzibar, and other exotic locales), an expanded cast (Wes Studi makes a terrific entrance as a Native American who’s been tracking one of the show’s main characters), and more figures from Gothic literature (I thought I was sick of vampires until I saw the way Dreadful introduces Dracula). For all this, the series remains centered on the fantastic Eva Green’s Vanessa Ives, who starts season three a quivering nervous wreck who can’t bear to face a sunny day.
Does your DVR finally have room to breathe? You’re not alone: We’ve hit a bit of a springtime lull in the TV schedule, before primetime is flooded with season finales and new summer shows. That means it’s the perfect time to adopt a new show! (What, you thought we were going to suggest going outside?)Here are a dozen TV series that get our highest recommendation, and can also be binge-watched in a reasonable number of hours. Plus, we give you a guide to where you can catch up on these shows.
Lots to watch this week, with 'Limitless' wrapping up its season, 'Penny Dreadful' returning, and Ricky Gervais's media satire 'Special Correspondents' hitting Netflix.
After that very dark Season 2 finale, the characters of Penny Dreadful are going to find themselves flung to the four corners of the world… and without each other to maneuver their new locales. In Yahoo TV’s exclusive extended trailer for Season 3, which premieres on Showtime on May 1, cast members Timothy Dalton (Sir Malcom), Eva Green (Vanessa), Josh Hartnett (Ethan), and Billie Piper (Lily) talk about what’s ahead for their characters in the nine-episode third season.
There are certainly some very obvious offenders: Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, and The Walking Dead, with their depraved combo of blood, guts, and creepy crawlies, are easily the first that came to mind for most of the Yahoo TV staff.
