“Showtime has made a decision not to move forward with one more year of ‘Penny Dreadful: Town of Angels,’” Showtime claimed in a statement. “We would like to thank government producers John Logan, Michael Aguilar and the entire cast and crew for their exceptional perform on this task.”
A successor to Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” “City of Angels” was set in 1938 Los Angeles and starred Nathan Lane, Natalie Dormer, Daniel Zovatto, Kerry Bishé, Rory Kinnear, Adriana Barraza, Michael Gladis, Jessica Garza, Johnathan Nieves. Recurring guest stars incorporated Lorenza Izzo, Adam Rodriguez, Amy Madigan, Brent Spiner, Lin Shaye, Thomas Kretschmann, Dominic Sherwood, and Ethan Peck.
“City of Angels” obtained decent opinions upon its release, with Time 1 keeping a 75% significant approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Variety’s Daniel D’Addario wrote at the time, “This sequence is aware of nicely that horror exists within just the context of background — that, without a doubt, some of the greatest chills of all can be wrung from our actual-lifestyle inhumanity as witnessed above time. This show’s subplot about Nazi infiltration into the government is played each with outsized, creeping dread and with a particular degree of frankness and plainspokenness.”
In the collection, when a grisly murder shocks the town, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) and his associate Lewis Michener (Lane) develop into embroiled in an epic tale that reflects the prosperous historical past of Los Angeles: from the creating of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the harmful espionage steps of the 3rd Reich and the increase of radio evangelism. Prior to extensive, Tiago and his loved ones are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
John Logan, the creator, author and executive producer the original “Penny Dreadful,” continued on “City of Angels” in those very same roles. Michael Aguilar also served as govt producer alongside with Sam Mendes and Pippa Harris.
