Less than a month, people! Less than a month until the season three premiere of Penny Dreadful. And to prepare us for all the gut-wrenching suspense and beauty, Showtime just released a two minute trailer that is all kinds of gothic magnificence.
RELATED: New Trailer for Penny Dreadful Season 3 Brings on the Gothic Horror We Love – “All the Broken and Shunned Creatures…”
What we’ve seen from Showtime up until this trailer aligns with the end of last season. The members of our favorite evil-fighting brigade have gone their separate ways to different parts of the planet. In this trailer we see them coming back together again help Vanessa fight as she is still hunted by Lucifer and his minions.
This visually stunning new trailer plays out to a slowed down version of The Flaming Lips, “Do You Realize??” We see Sir Malcolm on a quest and getting advice from a wise new character. We see Ethan Chandler listening in on someone else’s horror. We also see him as a werewolf! We see Dorian and Lily dancing but then we also see him with another young woman and then by himself. We see John Clare, we see Victor with Lily. We see Vanessa being hunted and a whole bunch of creepy people crawling on the ground like lizard/cockroach/crab hybrids. The two minute plus trailer had me at the edge of my seat with a fear bubble entrenched my gutty works.
Why this show hasn’t gained immense popularity and ratings is a mystery. It truly is one of the most beautifully written and shot series on the air. Add to that an amazing cast: Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Billie Piper, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway and Reeve Carney. And let’s not forget that amazing performance from Patti LuPone last season who it is said will make an appearance this season as well.
So, I give you a mission! Get on the Tweet machine and Snap Chat wagon and the Facebook monster and the Tumblr hole and all the social medias to let the masses know how awesome this show is! People deserve to be filled with beauty and fear every Sunday just like us.
