Well this is good news… Penny Dreadful will return.

Showtime have officially announced that the Gothic horror series will return for a third season next year and we at FTN couldn’t be happier with the news.

The current series is still ongoing but it’s already done well enough for the green light to be given for a summer 2016 return.

“Production on the new series will begin in Dublin in the fall, with Showtime confirming nine new episodes are on the way. Cast details have yet to be confirmed, but barring any untimely exits this season, we’d expect to see all the key players back in action next year.”

As one of our favourite new shows last year and still up there this season, we welcome this news… but do you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
