David Lynch’s revival of the cult drama is currently set to air in 2017, and will be only available to UK viewers via Sky.

The deal also includes all Showtime’s current series and catalogue, meaning Sky will continue to be the UK home of shows like Ray Donovan and The Affair, as well as archive shows like Dexter and Nurse Jackie.

New Wall Street drama Billions starring Damian Lewis and Paul Giamatti will also air on Sky, which set a new viewing figures record for Showtime when it premiered this week.

“We are enormously proud that Sky will be the exclusive home to new Showtime programmes for many years to come, building on a relationship that has grown over time including producing three successful seasons of Penny Dreadful together,” said Sky’s managing director for content Gary Davey.
