Game of Thrones fan favorite, Natalie Dormer, is joining the cast of the upcoming Penny Dreadful: City of Angels.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, which will feature all new characters and storylines, opens in 1938 Los Angeles, a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) is embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.
Dormer is set to portray the demon, Magda. The creature is described as a supernatural force that can take on the appearance of anyone she chooses. The character is a dangerous enemy and invaluable ally. Dormer joins a cast that also includes Jessica Garza (The Purge) and Johnathan Nieves (New Amsterdam).
The series is set to return to cable premium network, Showtime. The original Penny Dreadful ran for 3 seasons. It then shocked its fans with an abrupt ending no one saw coming.
No release date for the new season has been released at this time.
