“Embrace the dark side” (You don’t have to tell me twice, show!). Showtime has released a brand-new trailer and a first poster for the upcoming season of its hit horror drama series, Penny Dreadful.

Following the dramatic events of the show’s sophomore outing, Season 3 will see our main characters scattered to the winds with Ethan (Josh Hartnett) back in America to face his father (Brian Cox); Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) on a quest to return Sembene’s (Danny Sapani) body to Africa; the Creature (Rory Kinnear) somewhere in the English countryside and seemingly about to get some (Yay?); Victor Frankenstein (Harry Threadaway) making the acquaintance of a certain Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif); evil power-couple Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian (Reeve Carney) doing whatever evil power-couples do together; and Vanessa (Eva Green) being seduced again by the Lord of Hell, aka Satan. 

Check it out:


After a first trailer and two promos, this new trailer gives us our first look at two characters who were conspicuously absent from the previous promo materials: Sir Malcolm (the beard is back!) and the Creature. We're also introduced to Wes Studi’s Kaetenay, a new Penny Dreadful character described as “an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm.”

Penny Dreadful Season 3 premieres May 1 on Showtime.
