About Penny Dreadful: City of Angels
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is set nearly 50 years after the original series, during the Golden Age of Hollywood in the 1930s. It takes place in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place “deeply infused with Mexican-American folklore and social tension.” The characters are connected in a conflict between the Mexican folklore deity, Santa Muerte, the caretaker of the dead and guide to the great beyond, and her spiritual sister, the demoness Magda, who believes mankind is inherently evil and sets out to prove her point. Detective Tiago Vega and his partner, veteran Detective Lewis Michener, are tasked with a gruesome murder case and soon become embroiled in LA’s history, as well as its present, as racial tensions, the looming threat of war, and Nazi conspiracies threaten to derail them at every turn.
On Rotten Tomatoes, the series has an approval rating of 80% based on 25 reviews, with an average rating of 7.49/10. The website’s critical consensus is, “Though City of Angels’ host of interesting characters would be better served if there were fewer of them, twisty plotting and superb performances are bound to satisfy Penny Dreadful devotees.” On Metacritic, it has a weighted average score of 62 out of 100, based on 15 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews”.
Last episode of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels on Showtime aired on June 28, 2020.
