By far the most interesting and exciting new addition to the third season of Showtime’s brilliantly bonkers horror drama series, Penny Dreadful, is Shazad Latif (Spooks, Black Mirror) as yet another classic literary figure, Dr. Henry Jekyll – also known as the human alter ego of the monstrous Mr. Hyde.
These new promos (“Touched by Satan” and “Frightened”), seen below, give us out first glimpse of the character, and reveal that he’ll be associated with Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) in some way. The teasers also provide a look at some returning characters such as Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), John Clare/The Creature (Rory Kinnear), and Lilly (Billie Piper).
Plus, we catch a glimpse of an emotional reunion between Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett), which should please fans after the season 2 finale hinted at the possibility that these tortured kindred spirits would never see each other again.
Penny Dreadful Season 3 debuts Sunday, May 1st at 9 p.m. on Showtime. Will you be tuning in?
