A new “heart and soul” teaser promo has arrived for Season 2 of Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” and this one features the song “Evil Is Always One Step Behind” by Pale Seas. We also have a bit more info on how this awesome series of videos came about…
The Devil Is In All Of Us… That’s What Makes Us Human: Utilizing Steven Sebring’s stunning “4D” photographic technique, the spot shows each character’s body & soul simultaneously. The effect exposes the duality that exists within each of them: the calm, refined and beautiful exterior, juxtaposed with the wild, uncontrolled and terrifying truth that lies beneath the surface.
“Penny Dreadful” begins its 10-episode Season 2 on Sunday, May 3, at 10PM ET/PT.

In the upcoming season Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) 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.
