Farewell Penny dreadful...but what's next?

Last month, a great fantasy series with epic ideas and motion picture production values came to an end. Of course, so did Game of Thrones, but that’s not what I’m talking about. After three seasons Penny Dreadful has finished and by that I don’t mean we’ve had the seasonal finale plastered all over the papers and it’ll be back next year, I mean that’s it, that’s your lot, folks, there’s no more...
