New Penny Dreadful season 4 not happening,canceled by the producer. Hey, “Penny Dreadful” fans. We had previously reported that Showtime was undecided about giving your favorite show a new season 4.

Then early this morning, TV Line revealed that the shows Executive Producer, John Logan, confirmed that he actually ended the show! So, there will be no season 4! Just take a moment to let it sink in.

Alright, so now that we’ve gotten that out of the way. It’s not the end of the world. I’m sure Showtime will come out with a new show in its place that you can cling onto. Also, In rare event, TV Line was able to question both Showtime’s president, David Nevins and EP John Logan, as to why this great show is going away.

David quickly let everyone know that Showtime had nothing to do with the Penny Dreadful’s cancellation. It was all John’s fault, and that he needed to be the one to explain just what the hell he was thinking.

It turns out that he made the decision midway through season 2, claiming Vanessa’s story about her struggle with faith was coming to an end, meaning this was the end of her story and therefore the story of the rest of the characters.

He stated: “The show, to me, has always been about Vanessa Ives and her struggle with faith. I knew, sooner or later, it would get to a point of apotheosis, where she would either accept her God or deny her God. Midway through season 2. So, two years ago as I was planning a third season, I realized, “Oh, I see exactly where this is heading.

She’s going to have that moment, and the only way she can truly have it is at the moment of her death.” So, in my mind, I began shaping the third season thinking about all the characters and how I could lead them to a place that felt like a fitting conclusion.

And it was very difficult to do as a writer. I’m deeply attached to these characters. I feel like I created them, even the ones I didn’t, like Victor Frankenstein and the Creature; they’re real parts of me. That’s particularly the case with Vanessa Ives. I felt like it was the graceful, perfect way to end her story and therefore the story of all the characters.”

John and David went on to answer a ton of other questions about the show’s ending and the show in general, which you can read on their site by clicking the TV Line link at the beginning of this article. Stay tuned.
