The Season 3 finale of Penny Dreadful is actually the series finale, as the Show has been cancelled.
Showtime’s CEO David Nevins had this to say on the cancellation…
“John Logan deftly created a truly beautiful, brilliantly-written, epic drama series that has drawn a passionate fanbase to our network. After three fulfilling seasons, John has told the story he set out to tell and brought the series to a close in an incredibly poetic way. It has been an honor to work with him and this amazingly talented cast, and we’re thrilled that we can continue to work with John as he transitions to write and produce his next project for us, Just Kids, alongside Patti Smith. Together with our partners at Sky, we celebrate John’s vision and the thrilling finale of Penny Dreadful.”
Series creator Jhon Logan has also spoke about the series finishing:
“I created Penny Dreadful to tell the story of a woman grappling with her faith, and with the demons inside her. For me the character of Vanessa Ives is the heart of this series, From the beginning, I imagined her story would unfold over a three-season arc, ending with Vanessa finally – and triumphantly – finding peace as she returns to her faith. To have had fans that have embraced us so passionately has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my career. This has been a very personal project for me and I will be forever grateful to have worked with the incredible cast led by Eva, Josh and Tim, our amazing Irish crew, and with our wonderful partners at Showtime and Sky.”
