During its TCA Winter Tour presentation earlier today, Showtime released a new trailer for Season 2 of Penny Dreadful, while revealing that the season premiere will air Sunday, April 26 at 10 PM ET. 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.
Showtime has already announced a number of new casting additions for Penny Dreadful Season 2, including Sarah Greene as Hecate, the daughter of Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory), Jonny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past, Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator and Patti LuPone as a mysterious character who is of great importance to Vanessa (Eva Green). This season will show Vanessa and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) form a deeper bond, while others in the group wage battles of their own.
Timothy Dalton (Sir Malcolm), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), Danny Sapani (Sembene), Rory Kinnear (The Creature), Reeve Carney (Dorian Grey), Billie Piper (Brona) and Simon Russell Beale (Ferdianand Lyle) are all set to return in Season 2. Check out the new video below, and stay tuned for more footage and details as we get closer to the Season 2 Premiere.
