The official Penny Dreadful season 2 synopsis has been around for a while so we’ve had a general sense of where the show is going, but a new featurette just popped up and it’s packed with new character details and footage. As Josh Hartnett points out, this time around, “the hunters have now become the prey.” According to Eva Green, Vanessa is especially fragile this season, which probably isn’t the best state for her to be in because “the devil has sent his servants to capture her soul.” As for Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), he’s busy trying to fulfill the demand placed on him by the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and it looks like he might be close to pulling it off.
Check out the new Penny Dreadful season 2 featurette for yourself below to catch all the details. The show returns to Showtime on Sunday, May 3rd at 10pm. It also stars Timothy Dalton, Danny Sapani, Reeve Carney, Billie Piper, Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale.

Here’s the official synopsis for Penny Dreadful season 2:
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. Two-time Tony® Award winner 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.
