    Whoa, this looks very interesting! I was a huge fan of the original Penny Dreadful series and sad that they ended it when they did. This is a different story, set in the 1930s, and it looks really good! Will premiere on Sunday, April 26!

    Anyone else planning to watch??

    Isn't there a connection between Penny Dreadful and the play/movie/opera Sweeney Todd? I think it started out as a book series WAY back when, and one of the stories was the basis for the latter Sweeney Todd.

    Well, kind of related but not how you're thinking, afaik. A 'penny dreadful' was a serial book published weekly in the UK in the 19th century that sold for a penny. Sweeney Todd was based on a penny dreadful called The String of Pearls.

    The show Penny Dreadful was named for that type of literature and references some of the stories that were published.
