Unfortunately,  after the season three finale,  it was announced that Penny Dreadful had ended, as the main story had reached its conclusion.

So when will season 3 be available on Netflix has become a frequently asked question and the answer is complex.   The length varies from network to network. Fox shows usually takes a lengthy amount of time while ABC and the CW show a more rapid turnaround.  Showtime is still a bit of a mystery for Netflix considering all the previous shows that came to Netflix,  like Dexter and Nurse Jackie.

The earliest Netflix would have it available for streaming would be in August and we don’t see that on the list of new arrivals for August.  It seems more realistic that a late fall 2016 release for Penny Dreadful Season 3 would be more accurate.
