Sky Atlantic reveals first look at the new Penny Dreadful

Eva Green returns as Vanessa Ives in the third series.

Penny Dreadful

Sky Atlantic has unveiled a chilling first look at the new series of the network’s hit drama series Penny Dreadful, which is currently shooting nine episodes in Dublin, Ireland.

The startling Penny Dreadful image reveals Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) turning to her alienist Dr. Seward (Patti LuPone) for help in battling the evil forces she cannot seem to escape.

But “Dreadfuls” will have to wait until the hotly-anticipated third series premieres in 2016 to find out what led them here…

Series three will include a wealth of new and returning stars. Tony Award-winner 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 with an unconventional new approach.

Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels, A Million Ways to Die in the West) 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).

Guest stars Sarah Greene (Hecate) and Simon Russell Beale (Ferdinand Lyle) return, along with new guest stars Shazad Latif (The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Spooks) as Dr. Henry Jekyll; Screen Actors Guild Award-nominee Christian Camargo (Dexter, The Hurt Locker) as zoologist Dr. Alexander Sweet; 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.

Rory Kinnear (as The Creature) and Harry Treadaway (as Dr. Frankenstein) also reprise their roles.
