The first trailer for Penny Dreadful Season 2 has been released by Showtime.
John Logan’s horror series, which stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton’s moustache, was one of our favourite shows of 2014. The programme will return for another 10 episodes, which began production in Dublin, Ireland, in November last year.
Penny Dreadful’s Season 2 UK air date will be later in 2015 on Sky Atlantic, following its premiere on Showtime in the US.
John Logan, series creator and executive producer, commented when the first picture (above) was unveiled: “This season, Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) face new challenges, and old enemies, and turn to each other for solace. Their intimacy grows as they are forced to confront their demons together.”
The season will see 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, while Helen McCrory will return 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 stole several scenes as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. (Additional guest stars will 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.)
