How to Watch ‘Penny Dreadful: City of Angels’ Online – Live Stream Season 1

By Gabriela Vatu / April 26, 2020

There's a new Penny Dreadful show in town, and we are super eager to watch it. Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is kicking off soon on Showtime, and we want to watch all the new episodes online, so join us in figuring out the best way to do this.

City of Angels is a spin-off to the original Penny Dreadful show and has been in the works since late 2018. After the success of the first series, they're bringing in a new set of actors to take on the rules here: Natalie Dormer (whom you know from Game of Thrones), Daniel Zovatto, Adriana Barraza, and more. Rory Kinnear will also join the cast, although he'll have a different role here, and not that of Frankenstein's monster as he did in the original Penny Dreadful show.

The show is set 50 years after the original series, taking place in 1948 in Los Angeles. The characters of the show are in conflict with a deity called Santa Muerte, while others are allied with the Devil, making for a really interesting show that we cannot wait to watch.

When and Where to Watch Penny Dreadful: City of Angels?

City of Angels will premiere on Showtime on April 26th, starting at 10 PM. The first episode was actually released on April 23rd on Showtime's online platform ahead of the premiere, but you can always catch up or watch live when it airs.

How to Watch Penny Dreadful: City of Angels When Traveling Outside of the United States?

Traveling the world is pretty awesome, but what you need to know that there are some limitations to the things you can watch when you travel because all those live TV platforms and streaming services that you subscribed to back home are now geo-blocked. So, since you won't be able to access them freely when you are not in the United States, you will need to use a VPN. Basically, as soon as the platform detects you are no longer in the United States, it blocks your access. You can solve the problem pretty easily by using the VPN to change your IP address, so you appear to be back in the United States rather than anywhere else. We recommend ExpressVPN because it is a tool that works all the time, and it has thousands of servers all over the world and some great privacy features.

Here's how you can use ExpressVPN to watch Penny Dreadful: City of Angels:
