The mystic thriller Penny Dreadful will return in 2016 for its 3rd season.

The series created by John Logan has been renewed by both Sky Atlantic and Showtime, even after the debut episode of season 2 received its worst viewing figures for the series it soon bounced back with an 143% increases with its second episode.

Sky Atlantic director Zai Bennett said of the series: “Penny Dreadful is the perfect fit for Sky Atlantic; truly international in scale and ambition but with a raft of British talent at its core, and filmed in the Republic of Ireland.”

The second season has seen Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) forming a close bond as their group – including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and Sembene (Danny Sapani) – join forces to beat an evil force.

“I’m thrilled to have the series returning to the channel, and to once again be partnering with John Logan and continuing to work with our good friends at Showtime.” Bennett added.

Penny Dreadful launched in May 2014, and draws upon many characters from 19th century Irish and British fiction including Dorian Gray, Abraham Van Helsing and Victor Frankenstein.

Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Reeve Carney and Helen McCrory also star in the series, which is currently in the middle of its second season.
