Showtime and Sky Atlantic's beautiful, chilling Penny Dreadful will return for a second season...

Calling it "one of the easiest decisions [he's] ever made", Showtime president David Nevins has renewed horror drama Penny Dreadful for a second, longer season. Penny Dreadful is to return for a ten-episode run next year, giving it a broader canvas on which to weave its tales of the supernatural demi-monde.

John Logan's deliciously dark nineteenth-century set show draws upon Gothic literature and showcases the rare talents of Eva Green and the rest of its impressive cast, including Rory Kinnear, Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett and Billie Piper. It promised stylish, grown-up horror, and that's exactly what it's been delivering.
