Are you pissed over how terrible Penny has ended?

Showtime was a three season run from 2016-2018 and the original Penny Dormer series — not to be confused with the latest version from Natalie Dormer. It borrowed its principle from the new Alan Moore graphical alliance of extraordinary men, which serves as protagonists and antagonists characters from the famous English literature.

Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, and Timothy Dalton were produced and written by John Logan in a Victorian scene of Gothic horror. The show followed Vanessa Ives (Green), a powerful mental devil, who, with her crew, chased the diverse dark forces that besieged London in the 1800s, after the explorer Sir Timothy Murray and scientist Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway).

Helen McCrory’s deceased actriz played in an unforgettable performance two season-time adversary Frau Kali/Evelyn Poole. On Twitter, I ensured that point.

I wish her character might have done more in this series, but after season three it finished abruptly. And I’m always upset!

Without warning the fans, the show ended abruptly. Logan announced that the end of the series would be season three, according to Deadline. That this was a lie, I swore up and down. Who ends the show without first saying it’s over? Too many characters with backstories left open to his reasoning were left open by Penny Dreadful.

In Season 3, Shazad Latif was introduced to Dr Jekyll, as Lilly (Billie Piper), a Bride of Frankenstein-esque character, built a vengeful women’s army to revenge the London men and Ferdinand Lyle (Simon Russell Beale) went to Egypt. Fans speculated that the Mummy would look like this.

Furthermore, Vanessa Ives’ new confidant was Catriona Hartigan (Perdita Weeks), an original figure for the show which was rooted in the H.G. Wells novel, The Time Machine. And Vanessa becomes a goddamn vampire of Dracula at the end of it all! So many loose ends do not go away, and you say that is what you wanted to do always. I don’t trust you, John Logan, and I’m still bitter.

Any fans of Penny Terribly upset there as I am? And I am still unbelieving, four years later! What kind of conclusion would you rather have seen (or continuation) instead?
