Showtime has ordered Penny Dreadful season 2, renewing creator John Logan’s (Skyfall) psychosexual horror series for another go-around, and even expanding the series to a bigger episode count. The drama is currently in the midst of its eight-episode first season, but for season two Showtime has upped that number to 10 episodes in total. The series has garnered high praise from critics and solid ratings, counting our own TV expert Allison Keene as one of its fans. For those unfamiliar, the series stars Eva Green and Timothy Dalton and reimagines some of literature’s iconic figures such as Frankenstein, Dorian Grey, and a number of characters from Dracula, bringing them all together in Victorian London. I haven’t had a chance to catch the show just yet, but it’s high on my to-do list.
