The new season of Penny Dreadful doesn’t begin until May 1, but Showtime has dropped a couple of new teasers that hint at what’s to come. Unsurprisingly, it’s darker than dark. Vanessa, who narrates both clips, claims she’s not frightened of evil, Satan, and so forth anymore. But maybe she should be?

Showtime has just greenlit a post-apocalyptic series titled Last H.O.P.E. — which stands for the Last Hospital On Planet Earth.
There's a lot of excellent buzz surrounding John Layman and Rob Guillory's comic Chew, the story of an FBI agent who snacks on the dead to absorb their memories. And now the comic is getting its own TV series.
