Penny Dreadful promises both a curse and a blessing in the latest look at Season 2, which has just debuted a new trailer full of never-before-seen footage. Eva Green is seen as Vanessa Ives, who is learning to make use of the gifts she has been given. And this latest sneak peek promises this year will be much scarier than the last.

Series stars Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale are also set to return, alongside new cast members Sarah Greene, Jonny Beauchamp, Douglas Hodge and Patti Lupone. Penny Dreadful Season 2 is currently in production in Dublin, Ireland. The series has been expanded to 10 episodes for a 2015 launch on Showtime.

If you haven't caught up with Penny Dreadful Season 1, Showtime has something special planned for New Year's Eve. They will be launching a marathon starting at 8 pm, which will include all past episodes. Created by screenwriter and playwright John Logan and executive produced by Logan and his Skyfall director Sam Mendes, Penny Dreadful drew 4.8 million weekly viewers across platforms since its first season launch in May of this year.
