‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ Gets Showtime Premiere Date — And Jarring Trailer (VIDEO)

It’s finally here! Showtime’s Penny Dreadful sequel City of Angeles is off and running.

During Showtime’s executive session at the Television Critics Association winter press tour Monday, the cabler revealed that the series will debut on Sunday, April 26 at 10/9c.

Created, written and executive-produced by John Logan — the mastermind behind the much-loved original Penny Dreadful — this “spiritual descendant” is set in 1938 Los Angeles, “a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension,” reads the logline. “When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Fear the Walking Dead alum Daniel Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles, from its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism.”
