Penny Dreadful's Reeve Carney on Season 3 Villainy, His Dream Pairing and What Could've Saved [Spoiler]

17 July 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Why did Dorian have to murder [spoiler]? Why?!?

That question was foremost on Michael Ausiello’s mind when Reeve Carney, who plays the Penny Dreadful lady killer, stopped by TVLine’s Comic-Con suite at the Hard Rock Hotel last week, and our fearless leader wouldn’t let it go until the actor admitted that there was one thing that could have saved (we’re going to run her name now so avery your eyes if you’re behind on Season 2!!) Angelique.

What was it?

Penny Dreadful season 3 will introduce a new icon of horror

6 July 2015 4:31 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Penny Dreadful will introduce another famous figure from horror literature in its third season.

The Showtime / Sky Atlantic series already features icons of horror including Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), his creature (Rory Kinnear) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).

Series co-creator John Logan hinted at the introduction of a new character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, following last night's (July 5) broadcast of the season two finale.

"I can tell you this - and this is such a tease, and I am sorry for it - but after two years I am finally adding another famous literary character," he said.

"It's been fun going into another writer's brain and bringing one of those great characters back into our world."

Sky Atlantic and Showtime announced last month that Penny Dreadful - a transatlantic co-production - would return for a third season in 2016.

The series features Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton among its ensemble cast. »

Season Finale Review: 'Penny Dreadful' - Eva Green vs. the Devil was worth the wait

5 July 2015 10:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s hard to imagine the characters that inhabit the world of  “Penny Dreadful” being in worse emotional predicaments than they were at the end of season one, but creator and writer John Logan leaves his creations at their lowest points following the season two finale, “And They Were Enemies.”  Thankfully, he has the combined talents of Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear and director Bruce Kirk to make the preceding hour a more satisfying finale than viewers might have expected. The previous episode, "And Hell Itself My Only Foe," found our heroes invading the home of Madame Kali (Helen McCrory) in order to rescue Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) from her coven of witches.  It ended with Vanessa Ives (Green) facing her greatest fear, a doll of herself, and a trapped Sembene (Danny Sapani) refusing to kill Mr. Chandler (Josh Hartnett) before the full moon transformed him into his uncontrollable werewolf state. »

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.10, “And They Were Enemies” walks alone

5 July 2015 9:35 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 10, “And They Were Enemies”

Written by John Logan

Directed by Brian Kirk

Airs Sundays at 10 pm (Et) on Showtime

Penny Dreadful concludes its second season with one of its most emotionally wrought episodes in memory. There is no victory here for our monstrous players and worst of all, they find themselves alone.

Last week, Vanessa (Eva Green) told Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) that he deserved to be loved, and love and acceptance have always been sought by these ghoulish characters. While they previously have been able to lean on each other to form their own twisted little family unit, by the time the end credits roll on “And They Were Enemies”, these characters find themselves scattered to the winds. In the end, it seems they must all walk alone, as Ethan (Josh Hartnett) writes to Vanessa near the ending.

‘Penny Dreadful’ Season Finale Shakes Up Showtime’s Gothic Drama (Spoilers)

5 July 2015 8:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Showtime has renewed “Penny Dreadful” for a third season, which, after Sunday’s finale, provokes some mixed feelings. That’s not because the show isn’t great fun to watch, but rather because there was enough poetry in its final chapter that even with numerous loose ends, it frankly wouldn’t have been a bad place to end things. As it was, the season-long story line involving a Satan-worshipping coven paid off handsomely, before scattering members of the central cast in a manner that will require dexterity to reconstitute them. Fortunately, series creator John Logan appears up to the task.

As rich as the season was, it often didn’t seem to be going anywhere with any urgency, with Logan and his splendid cast luxuriating in the florid dialogue and Gothic atmosphere. So it came as something of relief to see the pace quicken and tension rise in the final two episodes, »

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.09, “And Hell Itself My Only Foe” loves its beautiful monsters

28 June 2015 9:10 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 9, “And Hell Itself My Only Foe”

Written by John Logan

Directed by Brian Kirk

Airs Sundays at 10 pm (Et) on Showtime

An overarching theme of Penny Dreadful’s second season has involved its monstrous characters trying to find their place in the world. On their own, they are fearsome, damned things, but together they form an almost familial unit. The struggle of the characters coming to terms with their roles in the grand scheme of things can be seen as a mirror for creator and showrunner John Logan trying to make his rogues gallery fit together.

In season two’s penultimate episode, “And Hell Itself My Only Foe”, Logan has his players embark on paths that may very well lead to their demise. With Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) still captive in the castle of witch Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory), the Penny Dreadful gang rallies for rescue. »

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.08, “Memento Mori”: “We are the dead!”

22 June 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 8, “Memento Mori”

Written by John Logan

Directed by Kari Skogland

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

As Penny Dreadful nears the end of its second season, it decides to acknowledge that it has characters beyond Vanessa and Ethan. The pair don’t even appear in this week’s episode, “Memento Mori,” but there’s enough going on to fill up the void.

Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) has become aware of his enchantment by Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory), and he doesn’t just mean in the romantic sense — he recalls how on the day of his wife’s funeral, he was at a ball waltzing. That’s simply not the kind of man he knows he is. Evelyn confirms his suspicions by possessing him and causing him to throw a tantrum, but Sir Malcolm is able to break the enchantment, and then unwisely goes off to »

TV Review: Penny Dreadful: Season 2, Episode 8: Memento Mori [Showtime]

20 June 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Showtime’s Penny Dreadful Memento Mori TV Show Review. Penny Dreadful: Season 2, Episode 8: Memento Mori contained so many surprises that I am scarcely capable of summing them up in a quick, snappy line that covers them all. In Memento Mori, the longest held secret in the series was revealed: the one concerning Dorian Grey (Reeve Carney) and the painting he allows no one else to see. The most delicious and succulent surprise though was the one Lily (Billie Piper) gave the viewer in this episode. Both reveals, Dorian and Lily’s, increased the scope of Penny Dreadful beyond what had previously been seen as its boundaries. Both were “wow” moments but Lily’s was incredible.

The discovery of Dorian’s secret was inevitable. How it was built up to was not. The story leading up to the painting’s reveal expanded the universe of the series. It also »

Penny Dreadful Renewed For Season 3

16 June 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Demimonde will continue to emerge over at Showtime, now that the premium network has picked up its critically acclaimed horror fantasy series Penny Dreadful for a third season, to be comprised of nine episodes.

Surprisingly, the John Logan-created show, which takes place in a Victorian England populated by some of horror literature’s most famed characters, from Victor Frankenstein to Dorian Gray, debuted to lower numbers in its second season premiere. Though the series’ quality has not wavered in the slightest, that has to come as a shock to Showtime, which has aired huge ratings hits like Dexter and Homeland over the past few years.

Still, Penny Dreadful is contending for awards this year, with attention expected to go to Eva Green for her lead performance as the tormented Vanessa Ives. Other cast members including Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Helen McCrory and »

Sky Atlantic and Showtime have renewed John Logan's critically-acclaimed series, which will shoot on location in Dublin for nine episodes to air in 2016.

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.07, “Little Scorpion” has claws for a reason

15 June 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 7, “Little Scorpion”

Written by John Logan

Directed by Brian Kirk

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

The overarching theme of Penny Dreadful’s second season—and indeed, the show as a whole—has been the battle for Vanessa Ives’ (Eva Green) soul. Evelyn Poole and her coven of witches have been fighting hard to deliver Vanessa to Satan, and “Little Scorpion” highlights one of the reason’s the devil wants Vanessa’s soul so badly: it’s steeped in darkness.

After last week’s rain of blood sent Vanessa into a swoon, she’s convinced it’s time to get the hell out of town. Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), still under the sway of Evelyn Poole, tries to shrug off Vanessa’s incident, resulting in Vanessa’s amusing, in media res retort: “It wasn’t female hysteria!”

TV Review: Penny Dreadful: Season 2, Episode 7: Little Scorpion [Showtime]

13 June 2015 8:14 PM, PDT | Film-Book | See recent Film-Book news »

Showtime’s Penny Dreadful Little Scorpion TV Show Review. Penny Dreadful: Season 2, Episode 7: Little Scorpion was an episode of ‘killer’ surprises. Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) finally found out what he is. Now he is as tormented as some of his companions. Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) is hunted by monsters and Ethan transforms into one during an uncontrollable state. Vanessa Ives previously referred to The Creature as a kindred spirit. How will she refer to Ethan once she knows what’s inside of him? Will he make the connection between himself and Lupus Dei?

The lightning strike was truly electrifying, setting loose feelings that had been pent up for a very long time. It was a dramatic moment but it quickly became dominated by the past. Vanessa knew what letting her sexual feelings loose could produce because of her sexual encounter with Dorian Grey. Many have been rooting for »

Penny Dreadful season 2 episode 6 review: Glorious Horrors

10 June 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It's time for a ball in this week's Penny Dreadful. What could possibly go wrong? Becky reviews the inevitable yet genteel mayhem...

This review contains spoilers.

2.6: Glorious Horrors

One of the biggest strengths of this second season is how fluid the narrative has seemed from one episode to the next.

It's another connection back to its literary past; each episode is another chapter of the story, continuing directly from the climax of the previous episode and into the new one. Following last week's night of passion, we're treated to the morning after; Dorian's making plans for a ball, Lily's making eggs for Frankenstein and Kali is making a Malcolm doll as he treats his wife's death with little more thought than whether he should replace the carpet. Dorian invites everyone who is everyone to the ball whilst Sembene finally learns what Chandler has been hiding.

Penny Dreadful, Ep. 2.06, “Glorious Horrors”: It’s Raining Blood!

8 June 2015 8:09 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Penny Dreadful, Season 2, Episode 6, “Glorious Horrors”

Written by John Logan

Directed by James Hawes

Airs Sundays at 10 pm Et on Showtime

Last week’s Penny Dreadful ended with several of the main characters shacking up for the night. This week is very much a “morning after” episode. Gone is the glow of a night of unexpected pleasure, replaced by a dull feeling of “What now?”

This has been a very up and down season for Penny Dreadful. There’ll be a rather flat episode that only serves to get the plot moving, which will then be followed by something magnificent. This week’s episode, “Glorious Horrors”, definitely falls somewhere in the “flat” realm. It’s redeemed in the end with a fancy ball that ends in a shower of blood, but it takes its sweet time getting there.

Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) learns of his wife’s untimely demise, which »
