A Penny Dreadful Community
Showtime (ended 2016)

Get out your datebooks—again—because the premiere date train is still chugging right along. This morning at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Showtime officially put Penny DreadfulNurse JackieCalifornication, and The Years of Living Dangerously on its schedule. The pay-cable network will kick off off its spring season on Sunday, April 13 with the Season 6 premiere of Nurse Jackie at 9pm, the final-season premiere of Californication at 9:30pm, and the debut of new docuseries The Years of Living Dangerously at 10pm. 

The Years of Living Dangerously is a nonfiction project about climate change that boasts the unique draw of a lot of big-name TV and movie stars, along with several famous journalists. Its "correspondents"—which include Jessica Alba, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, Michael C. Hall, the Terminator Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Ian Somerhalder, among others—will travel all over the world to tackle "an enormous range of subjects on the hot button topic of climate change." James Cameron is an executive producer. Here's the first trailer, which launched in the fall—once this series debuts, Fox News is going to have material for days. For days!


After The Years of Living Dangerously wraps its month-long run on Sunday, May 4, the supernatural/period piece mash-up Penny Dreadful will take its place on Sundays at 10pm starting May 11. The drama follows some of "literature's most famously terrifying characters"—think Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, characters from Dracula, and more—as they all co-exist in in Victorian-era London. Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Eva Green star. Showtime is hosting a Penny Dreadful panel later today, so we'll hopefully have a full trailer to show you soon. UPDATE: Here's that trailer! It's creepy!

so anyway, ignoring most of the comments so far, the important things I take out of all this is Penny Dreadful & Califorincation finally have an actual premiere date. That rocks more than a crack ho on payday! :)

oh and while I'm not hurting for shows currently; nurse jackie, californication and penny dreadful premieres probably wouldn't be the worst thing.

arnold *drives a hummer* schwarzenegger doesn't make the most sense but w/e. celebs in general don't unless that's what's needed to spoon feed fact to people. I know there's one belligerent ass below me who falls into this category:

Nope. I just don't give a shit about it. Think you can change the world? Go right ahead. Be my guest.

Still don't give a fuck and never will. You don't see me calling you an arrogant fucking asshole and telling you to go fuck yourself, now do you?

No. So leave me to my indifference for your oh so adorable climate change bullshit interest.

Wow, not until April? Good riddance to Californication, and Nurse Jackie in her current state has outlived her usefulness.

Oh well, Showtime sucks.

Oooooooooooooh, a show about climate change. Who gives a fuck about climate change? Hint: I don't.

Here I thought The Years of Living Dangerously might be a remake of the movie.

Don't know much about Penny Dreadful, but it sounds interesting. The title sounds kind of Stephen King-ishy.
