We don't know about you cats, but we are seriously stoked for Showtime's upcoming genre series, "Penny Dreadful." So much so that we're issuing a warning to the network now... If any characters decide to fake their deaths and become lumberjacks, We Riot!

Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadaway, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, and Eva Green star.

"Penny Dreadful" is created, written, and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Neal Street's Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, "Call the Midwife").

Juan Antonio Bayona, best known for his work on the hugely successful 2007 horror film The Orphanage and the 2012 Oscar contender The Impossible, directs the first two episodes.

"Penny Dreadful" is set to premiere on Showtime in spring 2014. For more info in the meantime, visit "Penny Dreadful" on Showtime, "like" "Penny Dreadful" on Facebook, »
