The American West and the sanitariums of London look to be some locations for Penny Dreadful Season 3.
What lays ahead for the broken shunned creatures and lost souls of the evocative Showtime horrorama?
We see in the teases that Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton head to the American west for answers to The Wolfman’s monthly curse and Eva Green is locked up in a frightening sanitarium with the demons waging psychological warfare in her mind.
This John Logan creation is an adept thriller that wends the true literary icons of the era, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Dorian Gray with the real-life horror crimes happening in London like the famed Jack the Ripper murders.
It has us rooting for these fictional antiheroes that include a breakout performance by British actor Rory Kinnear as Caliban, the creature made first by Viktor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway).
Patti LuPone, the pragmatic and pointed Cut-Wife of last season, returns as Dr. Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa (Eva Green) in a novel way.
Wes Studi (Magua in The Last of the Mohicans) joins as a series regular as Native American Kaetenay, who is connected to Ethan (Hartnett).
Also look out for Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll played by Shazad Latif, and Christian Camargo cast as zoologist Dr. Alexander Sweet, as well as Sam Barnett, Jessica Barden, Billie Piper, Reeve Carney, and Perdita Weeks.
Reprising his moustache and Donald Trump colored hair is Simon Russell Beale – a delight as Dr. Ferdinand Lyle – and Sarah Greene as the evil witch Hecate.
The third season of premieres on Sunday, May 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
