Frightened, touched by Satan, and unflinchingly dark are just some of the phrases one would use to describe the latest trailer and poster for Penny Dreadful season 3, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Retaining the stylish aesthetic and near perpetual sense of dread, today’s snippet features old and new faces alike, with the upcoming season anchored by Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett). Indeed, if last week’s pair of promos welcomed Dr. Henry Jekyll, then Showtime is shifting the focus to Penny Dreadful‘s broader ensemble of misfits, including Kaetenay (Wes Studi), Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), John Clare/The Creature (Rory Kinnear), and Lilly (Billie Piper).
Penny Dreadful returns to the small screen in a few months’ time when season 3 premieres on Sunday, May 1. Until then, you can peek from behind the sofa at today’s ghastly new poster for Showtime’s gothic series.
An erotically-charged, profoundly unsettling new saga, PENNY DREADFUL completely reinvents literature’s most iconic and terrifying characters. Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein and timeless figures from Dracula join a core of original characters in a dark and brutal quest to save a soul — even as they grapple with their own monstrous temptations.
