Showtime has released a new teaser for their upcoming Penny Dreadful spinoff series Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, featuring Game of Thrones alum Natalie Dormer’s Magda as she narrates a deadly prophecy that threatens to bring an end to all. The series is scheduled to debut on Sunday, April 26.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels was created by John Logan for Showtime. The series, a spin-off to Penny Dreadful, was ordered in November 2018, and is set in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with Mexican-American folklore and social 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 new chapter is expected to feature new characters and storylines. Production of the spinoff is scheduled to start this year with Michael Aguilar (Kidding) to serve as executive producer.
