Showtime has cancelled Penny Dreadful after three seasons.
Confirming the cancellation, network chief David Nevins told THR:
“John has decided the show really, at its core, has always been Vanessa Ives. John has said three seasons is enough and I think it’s really interesting that we live in this world where the every show can have its own rhythm and create its own destiny. This is a case of your creator says this is the best thing for the show and eventually you just say OK, do it, just do it well.”
