Showtime’s spooky Victorian drama Penny Dreadful had its season finale last night. Unbeknownst to fans, that was the series finale as well. “I can absolutely confirm it is really over, the end — that’s all she wrote,” creator John Logan announced; elsewhere, he noted that a three-season run was his intention from the…
In late April, we got the entire cast list for David Lynch’s reboot of Twin Peaks for Showtime. There were a lot of new additions, as well as familiar names who’d presumably be reprising their roles, like Kyle MacLachlan and Peggy Lipton. But fans were also left wondering why certain favorites had been left out.
Showtime’s Penny Dreadful returns May 1, and in recent months the gleefully grim series—which stars Eva Green and Josh Hartnett—has dropped a tantalizing handful of freaky/spooky/Satanic teasers. The full trailer for season three is here, and it’s all of the above ... times a zillion. The end of days, you say?
The new season of Penny Dreadful doesn’t begin until May 1, but Showtime has dropped a couple of new teasers that hint at what’s to come. Unsurprisingly, it’s darker than dark. Vanessa, who narrates both clips, claims she’s not frightened of evil, Satan, and so forth anymore. But maybe she should be?
As if to prove that this is really happening, Showtime released the first teaser for the Twin Peaks revival. It’s got Deputy Hawk (Michael Hoarse) extolling the virtues of the area, the theme song, and a requisite creepy moment.
In kind of a flip-flop of how these things usually unfold, Showtime’s Victorian England-set horror drama Penny Dreadful—which will unveil its third season in 2016—will jump from the screen to the page, courtesy of a Titan Comics series penned by the series’ scriptwriters.
Bad (or at least frustrating) news today for Twin Peaks fans: CBS Corp. chief Leslie Moonves said that the new, limited-run series—which has already been held up by David Lynch vs. Showtime pre-production issues—won’t be airing until 2017.
The era of à la carte TV may finally be here—ready or not. Today, you can officially stream Showtime over the internet, without a cable subscription, for $11 a month. You can get it through Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, iPod, on a Roku, via Hulu, or through Sony’s PlayStation Vue—another cord-cutting service.
The a la carte TV options are expanding. If you’re a Hulu subscriber paying $8 per month, you can add Showtime for another $9 now, which is cheaper than Showtime’s recently announced $11 standalone option.

Following the triumphant launch of HBO Now over the last few months, Showtime is rolling out a standalone offering of its own. Starting July 12th you’ll be able to watch Showtime for $11 per month without cable.
Just a few weeks back, Showtime denied rumors that the Twin Peaks revival might not happen. But now, it turns out the truth may hurt fans even more: David Lynch just announced via Twitter that he's exiting the project, and he made no bones about why.
Just when you thought the net neutrality debate had died down, a band of content providers now want special treatment. The Wall Street Journal reports that HBO, Sony, and Showtime are asking internet service providers to be treated as "managed" services. In other words, they want dedicated bandwidth for their video…
There have been plenty of teasers, but this new video — with nearly a minute of actual footage, including actual monsters, Timothy Dalton, and a contortionist — is the best look yet at Showtime's somewhat literary, vaguely historical supernatural horror series Penny Dreadful. Thoughts?
We still don't know too much Showtime's upcoming Penny Dreadful, other than it'll star Dracula, Dorian Gray, some Frankensteins (the doctor and the monster), and Billie Piper. But thanks to this new teaser, I think we can safely say Jesus is not cool with the shizz that's about to go down.
Good news for Dexter fans looking to relive the show's former glory: Netflix is getting exclusive rights to all eight seasons of the show. The first four will be available starting October 31, and that should keep you plenty busy until the second four hit on January 1.
