'The End' is declared in surprising fashion.
June 20, 2016
And just like that, it's over. In a shocking move, Penny Dreadful was brought to an unexpected close with last night's Season 3 finale. After a major character death during the 2-part conclusion, the words "The End" appeared on-screen to the surprise of many. Ahead of the episode, even the network itself was promoting it as a season finale rather than a series finale.
To address those in denial, the network, as well as Penny Dreadful's creator John Logan, both confirmed the end of the series following the episode. And though the finale came as a surprise to viewers, plans for the end game had been in place since early Season 3 planning.

Incredible acting, production values and story, so, of course it gets cancelled. A long winded mea culpa by the chief writer that he'd run out of ideas just doesn't wash.
It's time to shop Hulu, Amazon, and Netflicks for a write in campaign. This show was just beginning.

So disappointed that this ended. The cast was superb, and it was a show I always looked forward to. Why do all my favorites get cancelled too soon?

What a shocker! Couldn't believe Vanessa was shot. Then 'The End' came on I knew it was over but had to search & mAke sure. Goodbye Penny Dreadful

I waffled between adoring and tolerating the show - a few of the plotlines fell flat to me-but honestly, it had the potential to span a few more seasons. Can't it just be the end of Vanessa's story and continue on with the current cast?
I did really enjoy the acting, and in particular Rory Kinnear as Frankenstein's Monster.

Damn I love this series it was up there as one of my favorite shows and it's so sad to see it end so soon. Incredible actors, interesting story lines, complex characters and something completely unique. It will be missed!!

Is this the kind of ending that a canceled series gets never to return or a series that will have an attempted reboot with a new cast and story ark? Kinda like how dying shows sometimes throw a B-List celebrity and massive story overhaul at the series in hopes of boosting ratings.
