“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels ss 2”: release date, announcement

The continuation of the fantastic show “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” is scheduled for release in April 2021. But this information is not final, since at the present time it is difficult to talk about specificity – the coronavryrus has shown it. Self-isolation mode pushed back plans to shoot new episodes, and now the team of the “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” TV show is catching up. In addition, we should not forget about Natalie Dormer’s employment in other projects.

Plot

When Tiago was small, his father died in a field where Mexicans grew food. Everything happened right in front of the boy, and he clearly remembers these events even after 20 years. His mother, Maria Vega, is convinced that Santa Muerte helped her child survive. She is a powerful goddess, able to fulfill the desires of those who believe in her.

Santa Muerte is the patroness of the dead. People often perform rituals of sacrifice for the goddess, but more often they present uninvited objects. There is even a certain day on which Santa Muerte is worshiped, making monuments in the form of a woman without skin, with bones all over her body.

Tiago refers to this as the ravings of an old woman, and does not take seriously the words about the goddess. But when the first thing he does is ritual murder, he has to turn to his mother for help and find out who could kill several people at once, cutting out their hearts and painting their faces in the spirit of the goddess of death.

Frame from the TV show

Realizing that Tiago will never believe in a goddess, Maria calls her when she is alone and asks Mexicans to give a chance for a normal life. Santa Muerte at first does not want to listen, because her sister, Magda, is trying to set people up against each other. But in the end, Maria insists on her and the goddess makes her son Tiago a messenger, able to stop the war.

Maria did not know what the fee would be for such a request. In the confrontation between the police and the Mexicans, Tiago had to kill his older brother, who had shot several people before. It was not clear why the elder brother began to kill, and only after a while it became known – Magda had broken his will. Managing people, she set them against each other. The peoples fought, deaths were innumerable.

But Tiago again did not believe in Santa Muerta. Then Maria had to take extreme measures… The unexpected finale of the season 1 immediately made the audience understand what the next season would be. But what will be the starting point for future events?
