Penny Dreadful

  1. Pray For Your Soul After Watching The Penny Dreadful Season Two Trailer

    QUEEN EVA RETURNS

    It's coming back, all my dear fans of Gothic and Victorian serialized horror, and it's bringing some surprises with it. Which, you know, shouldn't be surprising if you watched all of season one. Penny Dreadful returns with two extra episodes this season, as well as apparently a) Vanessa Ives being creepy as hell, b) The Phantom of the Opera?!, and c) HELEN MCCRORY BATHING IN BLOOD. April 26th can't come soon enough.

    Eva Green continues to slay, obviously.

    Because the Gothic gods are good to us, Penny Dreadful is returning for a second season in 2015, and here's our first look! Seems like Vanessa is truly starting to take control of her powers - and do I see a Bride of Frankenstein Billie Piper in the end? Oh please say yes! If you missed season one, check out Showtime's New Year's Eve marathon starting at 8pm (and don't forget to read our recaps!)

  5. Get Your Eva Green Fix With This New Penny Dreadful Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

    With bonus and completely random Mass Effect content!

    Here's a frightful new behind-the-scenes segment on Penny Dreadful, taken from the first season Blu-Ray/DVD set! It includes lots of interviews with your faves - and a few newer faces, too (Helen McCrory!). Also, at the 1:00 minute mark, the background music for this video is absolutely without question "Leaving Earth" from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack. I can't handle the combination of Mass Effect and Penny Dreadful. I need to lie down.

  6. Penny Dreadful Season Two Is Magically Turning Dublin Into A Winter Horrorland

    I'm expecting some of Wordsworth's "The Brothers," judging by these shots.

    Penny Dreadful is skulking back through the darkness of Victorian London to our screens for season two, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Shooting on the new season started last week, and various crew members have been tweeting photos to either mitigate or worsen the waiting pain, depending on what kind of person you are. I need more weird sex and Eva Green in my life, stat.

  7. Patti LuPone Cast In Season 2 Of Penny Dreadful

    God, that's good!

    You know how for Penny Dreadful fans, there's a lot of overlap between people who like campy stories about fighting demons and people who like tonally-faithful interpretations of famous literary works?  We're gonna go ahead and guess that there's a lot of musical theater fans among y'all as well, because who doesn't love the literary made camp like a Broadway nerd? Well, hold on to your playbills, because all your dreams are coming true.

  8. Be Still Our Hearts: Penny Dreadful Veteran To Direct Sophie Turner In Mary Shelley’s Monster

    Sorry, Joffrey, there's a new monster in town!

    Hollywood's having a bit of a Mary Shelley moment, which is good news because we're having a Mary Shelley lifetime. Deadline reports that Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner is now set to star in Mary Shelley's Monster, a film that follows the author as she "writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own “monster” of an alter ego." Deep breath.

  10. Penny Dreadful Episode 8 Review: “Grand Guignol”

    In which predictable things happen, but in the best way possible.

    Penny Dreadful came to a close this week with more of a shadowy, haunting whimper than a twenty-first century bang, and I was completely okay with it. Though it left us with as many questions as it did answers, I really didn't expect anything less; if you did - what show have you been watching for eight weeks?
