Showtime’s Penny Dreadful Season 3 finale also marked the finale for the Penny Dreadful Series. The special two-episode ended in a powerful final scene followed by a title card announcing “The End.” There is also a heartfelt video below with those involved with the show, behind the scenes with cast and crew, saying goodbye to their fans. What did you think of the ending, was it too soon or at the right time?

Showtime CEO David Nevins said:
We could have maybe tempered the emotional ending and given people a little warning, but what’s the fun in that? Who wants to be warned that there’s going to be a surprise to come? It just seemed like the not-bold choice. So we said, "We’re going to end it, and there will be a title card that says, ‘THE END.’ And that’s the end of the story, when that title card comes up.
