A new trailer for Penny Dreadful for season three has been unleashed onto the internet and it doesn’t look like things are going to be getting any lighter or fluffier for the League Of Extraordinary Monsters. Penny Dreadful season three starts airing in the UK on Sky Atlantic on 3 May.
In season three the main cast is joined by LuPone (American Horror Story), who guest starred last season as the Cut-Wife, returns as a series regular in the new role of Dr Seward, an American therapist who treats Vanessa with an unconventional new approach.
