Soak up the new trailer for Penny Dreadful in a blood bath

Penny Dreadful Season 2

Coming off of its fantastic first season, Showtime is prepping for the return of “Penny Dreadful” on Sunday, April 26th, delivering a new trailer that hints at a much darker, bloodier season. "Penny Dreadful's" approach to sharing the small screen with some of literature's most iconic characters was masterfully done, burning through its narrative slowly and meticulously as Eva Green turned in a career-best performance. With witchcraft and necromancy at the forefront, this cryptic, brooding and atmospheric new look at Season 2 of "Penny Dreadful" is no doubt a good one.

In Season 2 of “Penny Dreadful”...

Vanessa and Ethan form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm, Dr. Frankenstein, and Sembene, unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray, the Creature and Brona are all waging battles of their own.

Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa’s past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle.

Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole’s powerful daughter, Hecate; and Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.
