Penny Dreadful Season 4: It has been years since the third season of Penny Dreadful was released. The show quite wrapped up a number of storylines, but fans are still wondering if we will ever get Penny Dreadful Season 4? Created by John Logan, the show is set in 19th century London. Starring Eva Green, Josh Harnett, Billie Piper, and Timothy Dalton, the show handles gothic atmosphere and its horror icons.
The latest season, season three, does a wonderful job as they wrap up a number of primary storylines. Sir Malcolm and the team reach Dracula’s lair to rescue Vanessa. They are then attacked by Dracula’s children while Ethan slips away and goes to find Vanessa.
She then asks him to shoot to end the darkness. By the end of the show, we see Sir Malcolm, Victor, and Ethan as they decide to move on with their futures and Vanessa’s funeral. What’s coming up next? What is the future of the show? Here are all the details about it-
Penny Dreadful Season 4: What’s The Status?
The latest season of Penny Dreadful, the third season concluded in May 2016. The season was able to bag great critical review with 93% Rotten Tomatoes and 83 on 100 by Metacritic. However, even after such great ratings, it looks like we will not get Penny Dreadful Season 4.
After the third season of the show aired, creator John Logan announced that the third season would be the last of the show as the story has concluded, and he does not see any scope is dragging the show further. This ending was more of a creative decision.
Will It Ever Happen?
It does not look like Penny Dreadful Season 4 will ever happen. John Logan had realized it in the second season, that the third would be the end of the show. The third season sees Vanessa dying as Chandler’s noble sacrifice. As for the creator, Logan feels that this end was the natural end of the story and the end of the show itself.
With that said, there were a number of unresolved storylines in the Penny Dreadful series. These storylines include Ethan’s werewolf backstory and Dracula’s fate story. Despite all of these stories, we suggest fans not wait for Penny Dreadful season 4.
Logan feels that the story would not continue without Vanessa. This show indeed is a supernatural one, and while Vanessa could be resurrected, Logan seems determined to not wake Vanessa from her peace. So, that would mean that we will never get Penny Dreadful Season 4.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels- The Spin-off
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, a spin-off series for Penny Dreadful recently released in April 2020. Starring Natalie Dormer, the series soon became the talk of the town. However, the spin-off series has not received great reviews or ratings. The spin-off series is set 50 years after the events of the original show. It takes us to the 1930s, the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Set in Los Angeles, the characters are connected to a dispute between the Mexican deity- Santa Muerte and her sister Magda, a demoness. The detectives Tiago Vega and Lewis Michener go on to investigate a murder where they find themselves deeper and deeper into the history of the city. They even get involved in the tensions between Nazi conspiracies and racial hostilities.
The series failed to either bag viewership or the ratings. So, fans must not be hopeful for either Penny Dreadful Season 4 or more of the spin-off series. If anything does changes about the show, we will keep you updated. So, you stay tuned.
