Showtime’s Penny Dreadful Season 2 now has an official still released featuring Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and Vanessa (Eva Green). I enjoyed watching Season 1 but now that all the characters have been introduced, I know that the action will pick up. Also cast in Penny Dreadful Season 2 are Timothy Dalton, Harry Treadaway, Danny Sapani, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear with Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale returning as season regulars.
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.
