‘Penny Dreadful’ Season 2: Watch the Full Premiere’s ‘Fresh Hell’ Right Now
Certainly one of Showtime’s more ambitious swings in years, horror mash-up Penny Dreadful will officially return for Season 2 on May 3, having been pushed back from an earlier April premiere. Hungry fans can get their fix right now however, as Showtime has placed the full Season 2 premiere online!
Dubbed “Fresh Hell,” the Penny Dreadful Season 2 premiere certainly lives up to its name as a new breed of evil begins pursuing Vanessa (Eva Green), while Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) wrestles with his beastly nature and Dr. Frankenstein creates yet another bit of supernatural horror. So reads the official Season 2 press release:
PENNY DREADFUL returns with ten episodes and will find Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) and Ethan Chandler (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 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 Jonny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.
You’ll have to wait until May 10 for a look at the second hour of Penny Dreadful Season 2, but check out the full May 3 premiere above!
