The original Penny Dreadful ran on Showtime for three seasons, from 2014 to 2016. Set in Victorian London, John Logan’s horror drama was a celebration of gothic excess. The show featured plentiful characters from great works of English literature, from Frankenstein (and Frankenstein’s monster) to Dracula.
