Originally set to premiere this Sunday, April 24th, Showtime has uploaded the first episode of their new spinoff series, "Penny Dreadful: City of Angels," to YouTube early and completely free of charge!
This is a little pleasant treat in a time where horror fans are hungrier than ever for new content! You can watch the entire episode below.
A spiritual descendant of the original "Penny Dreadful" story set in Victorian-era London, "Penny Dreadful: City of Angels" opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city's first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
The series also stars Natalie Dormer, Rory Kinnear, Lin Shaye, Michael Gladis, Lorenza Izzo, Adam Rodriguez, Thomas Kretschmann, Dominic Sherwood, Ethan Peck, Kerry Bishé, Adriana Barraza, Brent Spiner, Amy Madigan, Hudson West, Julian Hilliard, Jessica Garza and Johnathan Nieves.
