Get a Sneak Peek of What’s Ahead in Penny Dreadful Season 3


Here at the Dread Central offices, we’ve got “Penny Dreadful” in our thoughts, what with Season 3 kicking off this weekend, not to mention the various show-related items up for grabs in our May Box of Dread.

Showtime gifted the fan base with the chance to watch the premiere early (check it out below if you’re not quite up-to-speed yet), and if you’ve already watched it, you’re probably anxious to learn more about the upcoming season.  Well, wonder no more because here’s a look at what’s in store for stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, and the others…

About “Penny Dreadful” Season 3:
Patti LuPone (“American Horror Story”), 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 (“Hell on Wheels”) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton). The third season also adds Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll (Shazad Latif).

Other guest stars include Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Christian Camargo (“Dexter,” The Hurt Locker) as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett (2012, Jupiter Ascending) as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; Jessica Barden (The Outcast, Far from the Madding Crowd) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney); and Perdita Weeks (“The Tudors”) as Catriona Hartdegan, a scholar with expert knowledge of the supernatural.

Simon Russell Beale returns as Dr. Ferdinand Lyle. Rory Kinnear (as The Creature) and Harry Treadaway (as Dr. Frankenstein) also star.
