Showtime has released the first trailer for Season 2 of Penny Dreadful, which doesn't include any footage, but does tease a blood-soaked scorpion along with Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) discussing how the past may return to haunt all of these characters.

The network handed out a renewal back in June, which will be expanded from eight episodes in Season 1 to 10 episodes in Season 2. Production is currently under way in Dublin, Ireland on the second season.

We reported last month that Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale have been promoted to series regulars for Season 2. New cast members coming on board include Patti LuPone as a character who has ties to Vanessa's past, Douglas Hodge as Scotland Yard investigator Bartholomew Rusk, Sarah Greene as Poole's powerful daughter Hecate, and Jonny Beauchamp as a young man with a singular past.

Check out this new teaser to whet your appetite for the long wait until Season 2 debuts on Showtime sometime next year.
