I’m a big Penny Dreadful fan so would have been thrilled to debut any piece of season 2 content available, but just wait until you see what Showtime gave us. Not only does this character video tease what Vanessa Ives (Eva Green), Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett), Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and the Creature (Rory Kinnear) are dealing with this season, but it does so using some especially stunning visual tricks.
When the show returns, the characters will continue their fight against the evil forces that threaten to destroy them including Helen McCrory‘s Evelyn Poole who’s said to pose a unique threat to Vanessa this season. Check out our exclusive Penny Dreadful season 2 character video below. The show returns to Showtime on May 3rd at 10pm and also stars Danny Sapani, Billie Piper and Simon Russell Beale.
Here’s the official synopsis for Penny Dreadful season 2:
PENNY DREADFUL returns with ten episodes and will find Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) forming a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. Two-time Tony® Award winner 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 Jonny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.
