A brand new behind the scenes featurette for season two of Penny Dreadful has just been released, and new horrors await Vanessa, Ethan and their companions in this twisted new season.
While vampirism, and the resurrection of the undead were the focus of Season One, this new season concerns itself with the appearance of witches, and the devil himself, especially in the form of Helen McCrory’s Evelyn Poole, formally known to audiences as Madame Kali, who has been hiding a delectably evil secret. Her influence clearly seems widespread, effecting all those around her, particularly Eva Green’s Vanessa, who is now a shell of her former self, while her willing and loyal protector Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) has his own monstrous side to contend with. And while Vanessa and Ethan must confront a coven, Victor Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) must deal to the romantic yearnings of his creature (Rory Kinnear), and the wife he so desperately craves!
We appear to have merely scratched the surface of John Logan’s twisted Victorian world, but Season Two of Penny Dreadful is shaping up to be a twisted and original second chapter of this dark omnibus. Relive the fear of the dark on May 3.
