Showtime’s Penny Dreadful Season 3 premieres this upcoming Sunday, May 1, 2016. We also included the new sneak peek trailer below. The trailer looks awesome and teases many thrills and scares. Returning stars include Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, and Eva Green. I cannot wait to see how this new season plays out and how it builds upon the previous seasons.
Tony(R) Award-winning star 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. Also, this season will add Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll to the lineup of literary characters featured in the show, to be played by Shazad Latif (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Spooks).
The third season’s nine episodes, premiering on SHOWTIME in 2016 on-air, on demand and over the internet, will feature several new guest stars, including Screen Actors Guild(R) Award nominee Christian Camargo (DEXTER(R),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; Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels, A Million Ways to Die in the West) 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); and Jessica Barden (The Outcast, Far from the Madding Crowd) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).
PENNY DREADFUL is a frightening psychological thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar(R) nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan’s Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street Productions. The cast includes Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green. Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Simon Russell Beale, and Harry Treadaway also star.
