Following an interesting teaser and a behind-the-scenes glimpse at recent goings on, we now have a full Penny Dreadful Season 2 trailer. And it’s really good. I haven’t seen the show (and I probably won’t have time to watch Season 1 before this new one airs), so I’m considering diving in blind when the new season airs on Showtime on April 26th, 2015. This trailer is such a visual stunner that I think I could stand being confused for a while before I find my way in. There are worse problems to have.
Hit the jump to check out the Penny Dreadful Season 2 trailer. It’s a little bit NSFW but that’s part of the appeal, don’t you think? The show stars Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Reeve Carney, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Harry Treadaway, Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale will also return and will be joined by Patti LuPone, Douglas Hodge, Sarah Green and Jonny Beauchamp.

Here’s the official synopsis for Penny Dreadful Season 2:
This season, Vanessa and Ethan form 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 Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.
