Thought Penny Dreadful was done for good? Well good news, you guys! The show is coming back with some big ideas working behind it and best of all it stars Natalie Dormer in a key role, and she looks beyond fantastic.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will circle around 1930’s Los Angeles and the construction of the Arroyo Seco Parkway. Writer, John Logan refers to the time as one rife with “the worldwide resurgence of political extremism, atavistic nationalism, dangerous demagoguery, and the vehement racism and antisemitism,”
A time that reflects our current age. In fact, Logan goes on record with Entertainment Weekly to say that the reason this season of Penny Dreadful will exist, is that it is a parallel ideology that is a twin of what is going on with our current world.
In the series Dormer plays Magda, a demon and “an agent of chaos.” She is a shape shifter who doesn’t see eye to eye with the hearts of mankind and their desire.
Logan goes on to say that the series isn’t going to be an anthology take. This is very much connected by a string to the initial run of Penny Dreadful that starred Timothy Dalton, Eva Green and Josh Hartnett. Now, what that string is we will have to wait and see.
