Despite the relatively low ratings the developers of the series under the title “Penny Dreadful” are not going to give up in their intentions to pull forward the genre of horrific drama.
Short review of the series
It is the series produced and written by John Logan, an enthusiastic producer of the genre of fantasy. Once he made up his mind to create the scenery in which the action takes place in a Victorian London. That place is considered to be the most popular address for mystic thrillers characters, for example, Victor Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, Dracula, and others. The citizens live their usual quiet lives and do not have any hunch that great changes in their city are coming. They should be more attentive, since on the streets of London the evil spirits of various kinds are gathering to chase the souls of humans and to divide the city around each other. However, the requital in the face of witch hunters, including the most famous Van Helsing, is waiting for them.
The main character is Ethan Chandler, who becomes obsessed with the charming beauty of the medium Vanessa Ives. The developers define the genre of the series as the psychosexual horror, a new branch of a huge fantasy tree.
Did Penny Dreadful turn to be a successful project?

The first episode was aired on May 11, 2014. The series was to be broadcast on various American and British channels. Finally the creators decided in favour of the American channel Showtime. The channel SkyAtlantic turned to be also a coproducer of this project.

As the creators note, the new chapter of the gothic story will include 9 episodes. Moreover, if to believe the official trailer, the cast is greatly broadened. The series is going to glitter with the most famous stars in the channels’ sky: Jessica Barden, Sam Barnett, etc. The new personages (for instance, Dr. Seward) are going to increase the ratings substantially creating different story lines that should be captured by fans of the genre of the horrific drama.
