When it comes to satisfyingly pushing the envelope of cable television, we all know that Showtime is king. This Spring, they aim to remind anyone who’s forgotten this fact, especially in the midst of ‘Dexter’ critics. The new series, ‘Penny Dreadful’, will take place in Victorian England and feature some of the most famously frightening characters ever found in literature (e.g. Dorian Gray and Dr. Frankenstein). With a cast led by the ever entrancing Eva Green, along with Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, and Billie Piper, the show looks to have an interesting array of acting chops behind it! I love horror and the seductive yet creepy way that Showtime is beginning their marketing of the show gives me high hopes for the full content they’ll bring us. In other words, I had to stop seal!clapping to write this. See how much I love you all?!
Check out the new teaser trailer and let us know what you think!
‘Penny Dreadful’ is slated to premiere Sunday, May 11, at 10pm EST. We’ll keep you posted on any new tidbits or changes as they come.
