Showtime drama Penny Dreadful’s season finale June 19 ended up being its series finale, wrapping up three seasons from creator John Logan.

The series is a co-production between Showtime and Sky, with Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton in the cast.

“I created Penny Dreadful to tell the story of a woman grappling with her faith, and with the demons inside her," Logan said. "For me the character of Vanessa Ives is the heart of this series. From the beginning, I imagined her story would unfold over a three-season arc, ending with Vanessa finally – and triumphantly – finding peace as she returns to her faith. To have had fans that have embraced us so passionately has been one of the most gratifying experiences of my career.”

Shot on location in Dublin, the goth series brought together memorable characters in literature, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and figures from the novel Dracula, in Victorian London.
