Following a brief trailer for Season 2 of Penny Dreadful released last month, Showtime has debuted the first photo from the new season, featuring Josh Hartnett's Ethan Chandler embracing Eva Green's Vanessa Ives.

Here's what series creator/executive producer John Logan had to say about Ethan and Vanessa's story this season.

"This season Vanessa and Ethan face new challenges, and old enemies, and turn to each other for solace. Their intimacy grows as they are forced to confront their demons together."

The series has already announced a number of guest stars for Season 2, including Patti LuPone as a mysterious character with a link to Vanessa's past, Douglas Hodge as Scotland Yard investigator Bartholomew Rusk, Sarah Greene as Hecate, the powerful daughter of Evelyn Poole (Helen McCrory) and Jonny Beauchamp as a young man with a singular past. Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale have also been promoted to series regulars. Check out the first photo below, and stay tuned for more images and footage.
