“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will have a social consciousness and historical awareness that we chose not to explore in the Penny Dreadful London storylines,” Logan explained. “We will now be grappling with specific historical and real-world political, religious, social and racial issues. In 1938, Los Angeles was facing some hard questions about its future and its soul. Our characters must do the same. There are no easy answers. There are only powerful questions and arresting moral challenges. As always in the world of Penny Dreadful, there are no heroes or villains in this world, only protagonists and antagonists; complicated and conflicted characters living on the fulcrum of moral choice.”
A new era has officially begun for the Penny Dreadful franchise. On Thursday, Showtimeannounced that their upcoming spinoff series, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, has officially begun production. The announcement was accompanied by a photo of series stars Daniel Zovatto and Nathan Lane in costume.
