The first trailer for Penny Dreadful Season 3 premiered last month and let us know ‘when evil spreads, dread comes for all of us.’ At that point we all knew the creepiest, most superbly written, horror gothic show was on its way back to us.

This new trailer for the hit Showtime series, Penny Dreadful, goes deeper into what our favorite characters have been doing since they all went their separate ways at the end of Season 2. Although they are apart, it is apparent that some are still thinking quite strongly of others and everyone is fighting their own demons – that sometimes are really scary witch people that will break through your windows.

The trailer is set to a creepy version of the Leslie Gore song, ‘You Don’t Own Me’. It seems that our Vanessa Ives is in an institution and is still haunted by Lucifer even saying, “I’ve been touched by Satan” and I don’t think she just means figuratively. Ethan’s dreams are sadly full of rendezvous’ with Vanessa. Doran and Lily are throwing high concept, bizarre dinner parties and Sir Malcolm is searching for someone or something. And the monster, well, he’s still very sad and poetic. It’s all very exciting.

Read this synopsis for Season 3 of Penny Dreadful. Also, our favorite guest actress from Season 2, Patti Lupone (The Cut Wife), is coming back! And Dr. Henry Jekyll will be making an appearance on the show.
