Last night's episode was it.

Showtime CEO David Nevins told EW, "I always knew it wasn’t going to be a really long-running show — John [Logan} made that clear coming in."

I really enjoyed Penny Dreadful, but it makes sense to keep it as a short-lived show. At some point the recycling of fictional characters would have gotten old or the supply of characters would have run dry. There are only so few instantly recognizable characters in horror fiction, that the show would have been in trouble when trying to keep it fresh or trying to keep the current characters in by coming up with convoluted storylines.

Nomatter what some critics say, I still enjoy the heck out of this show. There are some very strong actors here doing an intense job. So many bull sh i t shows on TV that are shallow and just plain stupid. This Penny "awesome" is one of very few Jewels left to find amongst the swamp of brainshrinking stuff on the tube.

I believe I am still shocked!
Just finished the last episode and I totally have not expected it... I suppose I should be happy that by some dreadful coincidence I left the last 3 episodes to be watched together (this way I've got to enjoy the ending and the story to the fullest) but I just grasped the 'near-end' half way through. Seriously? producers? Not a word?

That was sudden! But hey, at least they went out with a bang! Great Series finale! But would have wanted to see Mr Hyde!

Yet another awesome, original show canceled so another housewives of dullsville can be produced. Dumb society down to the lowest common denominator. So many brilliantly acted and directed shows cancelled this year, yet boring unoriginal shows carry on.

I hate people.. but most of all David Nevins and John Logan.. don't know who played the bigger role in the ending of this show but they can both go **** them selves.

Honestly, although I probably would have watched this show forever (As it was one of my favourites) I respect the decision to end it as it did. Really it ended on a positive note with everyone seeking a new beginning and Vanessa being released from her suffering. Very hopeful message for a bleak world. It ended while still at its peak and went out on a truly strong footing. congratulations on a job well done! I felt it was a really wonderful show, and if there is any spinoffs that come from this, or any of the characters, I can see them also being very well received. (If done by the same people) One of the shows I enjoyed the most, and no one can say it ever went stale!

The creator of the show said it wasn't going to be a long running series. He wanted it short and sweet!

I am sad that is ended, but I appreciate so much when a show know that they should quit. It felt like a well rounded story, with a beginning and an end, giving room for all of the characters to develop. Great job!

Oh, no! I haven't even started watching it, yet. It was one of my 'rainy day binge watch' shows! I'm sad that it's been cancelled as so many people love it.. But, if sidereleers feel it's been well finished then I'm going to keep it to binge watch as the characters were supposed to be terrific! :) There's nothing better than a show ending well, a satisfying conclusion is not something we always get with our favorites....

I'm so sad about this, but nevertheless this was a great show and I'm clad I gave it a chance. I'm going to miss the characters though.

Concluding? Really? This show is the best horror series in the history of the genre. FACT. I can't believe this sh!!!T. First Agent Carter, then Limitless, and now Penny Dreadful. Unbelievable. Is nothing sacred?

Heartbroken! The end was beautiful - in a way. But I still feel the last episodes were rushed. We had this slow build up, and then suddenly everything was resolved in super speed - leaving several storylines hanging. E.g. Dorian and his picture, I was sure we'd see some problems with the poor creature in the picture. And Dr Jekyll/Hyde - what was the point of introducing that character if it had no meaning for the storyline? He could have been any doctor meddling in that area, it wouldn't have mattered. And introducing great characters like the psychologist and dr. Death. Why? It seems they suddenly decided to end the show in the last two episodes. I can't understand how this was a planned move. I loved this show. And I liked the last episode, but it didn’t feel like the right time to end the show.

I totally agree with "Inedrage". The last epsiode did not have this typical" feeling" of -something not right- to it that usually was there "in the background" of every Episode. The reason we all kept watching..hooked...loving the characters ..hating the bad ones..even though they kept us intrigued to what would be their next move...the sheer depth of all those Personalities was the singular reason to even watch this show. Emotions. Drama. Blood and gore ( even though some might not agree but still watch, right?) that keeps us interested in the Going Ons. The Characters that have their emotional issues which steer there next moves. The last issue just felt rushed. "Let's go, guys! Gotta get this last one on the road. We have so much other things to do, AND: has someone told my wife we are recording that other show in Canada tomorrow?"

Sad to see it end, but at least the quality never dipped over the three seasons, and I'm happy enough with the conclusion.

I also agree with Inedrage. It has left too many open side stories, it was designed to have more episodes but they rushed the main active story line then made out that was all the show was planned to have. My gut feeling is this was another commercial or environmental move. Possibly some of the main cast wanted either to move on to new projects or wanted a large pay rise. We will never know why, but it is a sad day and another bright shining star is snuffed out from the entertainment sky.

I loved this show! Sad to see it come to an end.... I haven't gotten to the last episode because I am afraid I will miss Ms. Vanessa Ives, Dorian Grey, Brona Croft, and the lot of them! x_x

I'm sorry to see it go so soon, but I can see why this would be a limited series. I feel like they thought it would be the last season but weren't entirely sure (even despite what they claim). I was suspicious almost from the beginning because certain stories seemed like wrap-ups but then why introduce new characters such as Jekyll and Catriona? Plus even though I thought this was the best season yet, Ethan and Vanessa are apart the whole time— the agony! I like redemption tales and stories about overcoming the pull of darkness. This is one of the only (if not the only) show that treats God like he's really there, not just a passive, and I really appreciate that as well. All in all, this show was very good and ended very well. I will definitely miss seeing Josh as Ethan:)

One thing that makes me think this wasn't originally supposed to be the last season, is how much the idea of Ethan being "the wolf of God" and how impotant that is was drilled into our heads, but then never mattered. Him being a wolf isn't how he "saved" Vanessa or defeated Dracula.
