After watching a thrilling debut season finale, many people are asking whether there will be Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels Season 2 or not. The newly release spin-off series gave the fans a lot of good time during the lockdown, and they will love to have more time like that. The show opened with a mixed response from the critics. However, the fans loved it and can’t wait to see it back on screen.
Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels is an American dark fantasy TV series. John Logan created this show for Showtime. It is a spin-off of a series named, Penny Dreadful, which concluded back in 2016. The original show has one of the most unexpected endings of all time. The viewers didn’t even realize that it was the end. Now, the fans are expecting much more out of this new show and hope that this time they will get a proper conclusion.
Renewal Status For The Second Season!
Showtime neither canceled nor renewed the series for its second season yet. The inaugural season aired its finale recently on June 28, 2020. It is too early to expect renewal from any network. Currently, the spin-off isn’t as popular as its original series. And the viewership is also not on the mark as compared to the original. It is also possible that the creators are holding back the renewal because of the COVID 19 situation. Showtime might give the green light to Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels Season 2 once the production shutdown lifted. The fans can expect Showtime to officially announce the fate of the show within the next two months.
Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels Season 2: Plot Details
The spin-off show explores the golden age of Hollywood. The story takes place in 1983 in LA when the city was in the middle of racial strains, particularly between the Los Angeles Police Department and Latino communities. The plot of the debut season includes a period as well as supernatural elements. The finale episode, “Day of the Dead,” left a lot of lingering threads to pull in the second season. Alex, Rio, and Elsa are becoming more and more essential in their various promenades. Elsa has moved in with Dr. Craft and has made him consider a more hardline stand to support the Nazi Party members within the LA city. After murdering Fly Rico, Rio has served Mateo to become the pachuco’s leader and seems engaged in preserving a race war and other violent revolutions.
Moreover, the Vega family still is at the core of all the disputes, with Magda taunting Tiago in the ending about a prophecy that was initially mentioned in the premiere episode, “Santa Muerte.” As Santa Muerte considered Tiago as a boy, he may be necessary to Magda’s fall once the prophecy starts to come into play. Therefore Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels Season 2 has a lot of stories, to begin with. It felt like the first season only made a foundation for the future installments.
Penny Dreadful: City Of Angels Season 2: Release Date
The first season of the spin-off was ordered way back in 2018. It took two years to present the show on the screen. Since the current situation is too risky to start any production.
