TV - Penny Dreadful Season 3

Penny Dreadful

A new teaser trailer for Season 3 of Penny Dreadful invites you to Embrace Your Dark Side...

The nine-episode third season of the Victorian gothic show will premiere in the US on Sunday, May 1st, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT. The new season will also be shown on Sky Atlantic, the UK channel that has the rights to all the Showtime dramas, but a start date has not yet been confirmed, although some rumours seem to suggest the new season will premiere a couple of days later than in the US, on May 3rd.

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.

Season three includes a wealth of new and returning stars. Tony Award winner Patti LuPone, who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife, returns as a series regular in the new role of Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach. Wes Studi is a new series regular starring as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton).

New guest stars for this season include Shazad Latif as Dr. Henry Jekyll; Christian Camargo as zoologist Dr. Alexander Sweet; Sam Barnett as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; Jessica Barden as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney); and Perdita Weeks, as Catriona Hartdegan, a scholar with expert knowledge of the supernatural. Rory Kinnear (as The Creature) and Harry Treadaway (as Dr. Frankenstein) also star.
