5 Best Television Shows Airing this Spring.

Without seeing an episode of this show, as it premieres on Sunday on Showtime beginning May 11th, there are plenty of reasons to be intrigued here. As Showtime puts it, this series features “some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London”.

WHY TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE SERIES PREMIERE OF PENNY DREADFUL

Intrigued yet? The show also has a very large budget and was written by oscar-nominated script writer John Logan, while also having names such as producer Sam Mendes (Skyfall) and director Juan Antonio Bayona (The Impossible) attached to this Victorian London psychological thriller.

Penny Dreadful also boasts a cast that features Josh Hartnett, Eva Green and Timothy Dalton who should breath ample life into the characters they play in this horror/thriller television series.

This show may deserve higher praise on this list after it airs next Sunday on Showtime; however, for practical purposes it will remain #4 respectfully, to the next three shows on this list.
