Epic ending of Penny Dreadful season three will be written in blood

Penny Dreadful season three will conclude this week with a two-hour finale event that will include the season’s two remaining episodes “Perpetual Night” and “The Blessed Dark.”

Both episodes are written by acclaimed series creator John Logan, and will see the Wolf of God and Dracula confront one another in a thrilling and ensanguined finale.

Ethan (Josh Hartnett), Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) and Kaetenay (Wes Studi) will arrive in a dreary, fog-engulfed London to save Vanessa (Eva Green) – but it may be too late as the city is seemingly crawling with night creatures.

Meanwhile, the futures of Lily (Billie Piper) and The Creature/John Clare (Rory Kinnear) also hang in the balance, and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney) has a home overrun with die-hard Lily fanatics, not to mention a pile of severed hands, to deal with.

Has Vanessa finally embraced the evil that has relentlessly hunted her? Will Ethan, Sir Malcom and Kaetenay be enough to overthrow Stoker’s infamous beast and his army of blood-sucking minions? All will soon be revealed. In the meantime, you can watch a teaser of the finale here.

The two-hour season finale of Penny Dreadful will air in Australia on the Showcase channel on Foxtel at 8.30pm, Wednesday June 22.
