Showtime took the wraps off plans for season three of a dark drama series, unleashing an appropriately dark teaser for “Penny Dreadful.”
The hit series will return Sunday, May 1, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The scary psychological thriller stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green. “Penny Dreadful” is written and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan (“Hugo,” “The Aviator,” “Gladiator”).
“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,” Showtime notes in its announcement. “Wes Studi (‘Hell on Wheels’) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Dalton). The third season also adds Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif).”
