Following the character posters released last month and the third trailer from last week, Showtime has debuted the fourth trailer for Season 2 of Penny Dreadful, debuting Sunday, May 3 at 10 PM ET. The trailer features Eva Green's Vanessa, who is seen turning over a number of Tarot cards that all feature The Devil. Vanessa appears quite pleased that The Devil keeps popping up, as it's revealed that she is sitting inside of a pentagram, and has been turning over these devilish cards for quite some time.
The new season will see Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) forming 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 also 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 heroes 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 Jonny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past. Take a look at the latest footage, and stay tuned for more on Penny Dreadful as the countdown to Season 2 continues.
