We're down to a month before the new season of Penny Dreadful, and the gothic cocktail of vices, virtues and violence is about to be poured into our living rooms to be sipped and savored once again. Here's a fresh featurette from Showtime stuffed with new peeks at the show's witches, vampires and monsters as stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reve Carney, Billie Piper and Harry Treadway discuss the bigger, wider, broader story in the upcoming season. From the arctic north to the New Mexico desert, the cast is scattered to the far corners of the world, still battling demons both real and imagined.
Here's the official synopsis of what's lurking ahead:
This season on “PENNY DREADFUL,” Tony Award-winning star Patti LuPone (“American Horror Story”), who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife, returns as a series regular in the new role of Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach. Wes Studi (“Hell on Wheels”) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton). The third season also adds Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif).
Other guest stars include Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Christian Camargo (“Dexter,” The Hurt Locker) as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett (2012, Jupiter Ascending) as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; Jessica Barden (The Outcast, Far from the Madding Crowd) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney); and Perdita Weeks (“The Tudors”) as Catriona Hartdegan, a scholar with expert knowledge of the supernatural.
Simon Russell Beale returns as Dr. Ferdinand Lyle. Rory Kinnear (as The Creature) and Harry Treadaway (as Dr. Frankenstein) also star.
