I didn’t watch any of the first season of Penny Dreadful but I’m tempted to power through it before season 2 arrives. I’ve heard pretty much nothing but good things about the show, it’s horror (my wheelhouse), and it stars Eva Green. That’s a lot of assets in its corner. This new teaser isn’t half bad either, giving us a slightly gory glimpse of what’s to come in the new year.
Season 1 players Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Harry Treadaway, Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale will also return and will be joined by Patti LuPone, Douglas Hodge, Sarah Green and Jonny Beauchamp. Hit the jump to check out that Penny Dreadful season 2 teaser. Showtime will air the second run of the series sometime in 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis for Penny Dreadful Season 2:
This season, Vanessa and Ethan form 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. 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.
