Los Angeles, 1938. A city, divided. An evil, awakened.

”I can hardly wait,” wrote Adam Rodriguez on Twitter and Instagram and shared the new promo for Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful”. He added “You’ll understand why after you watch on APRIL 26th.”

The show is Adam’s first post “Criminal Minds” gig. He recurs as Raul Vega, the eldest son of the Vega family who is also a righteous union leader and advocate for his people.

“Penny Dreadful: City of Angels” premieres April 26, 2020 on Showtime Networks.

Watch the promo below.

A spiritual descendant of the original Penny Dreadful story set in Victorian-era London, Penny Dreadful: City of Angels 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) and his partner Lewis Michener (Nathan Lane) become 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. Penny Dreadful: City of Angels will premiere on Sunday, April 26 at 10/9c only on SHOWTIME.
