Showtime has released a mysterious first teaser trailer for the second season of PENNY DREADFUL that shows Reeve Carney (Dorian Gray) reminiscing on Vanessa Ives' (Eva Green) photo as she collapses to the ground, battling inner conflict.
With quick scenes of the cast, a bloody symbol and a hand reaching from a bathtub, she explains, "The time came when I learned the curse was also something of a blessing. I'd learned to make use of the gifts I had been given. Will you do the same?"
“This season, Vanessa and Ethan form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa’s past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole’s powerful daughter, Hecate; and Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.”
Showtime made the announcement back in September that Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale, who both were guest stars from the first season, will now be series regulars for the second season which will feature ten episodes.
On New Year's Eve Showtime will be running a PENNY DREADFUL marathon. All eight episodes of the first season will be aired. There will be an encore presentation on New Year's Day on Showtime 2.
“In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters — including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light — have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Billie Piper and Danny Sapani"
PENNY DREADFUL Season 2 returns to Showtime in 2015.
