Penny Dreadful has quietly been providing high-class suspense and introspective horror for two seasons now on Showtime. Season 3 kicks off May 1, with the brutal and broken creatures having all been scattered to the winds.
Check out the sexy, scary Penny Dreadful Season 3 trailer via Showtime’s YouTube page, or below:
That sure is a pretty trailer, chock full of all the weird, creepy images you’ve come to expect from Penny Dreadful. Hopefully Season 3 can pick up its a pace a little a quicker than the previous seasons, because both were excruciatingly slow at certain points for me.
Along with this beautiful trailer, Showtime has released this haunting piece of key art in promotion for the upcoming season:
