The very first logo that we had seen for ‘Penny Dreadful‘ gave us a bit of stiching, so it should be no surprise when the latest teaser gives us a little more. Showtime’s eight-episode first season of ‘Penny Dreadful’ is premiering on May 11th and with over a month away, still we have plenty of time for more teasers to kick in.

So what do we have in store this time? Some of the stars of the show, specficially Eva Green (‘Dark Shadows’, ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’), Timothy Dalton (‘The Rocketeer‘, ‘Doctor Who‘, ‘Chuck‘), and Josh Hartnett (‘Sin City‘, ’30 Days of Night’), are all reading words that are appearing on flesh that has been stiched together. Knowing that one of the characters is Doctor Frankenstein, does that mean this flesh that is stiched together could be flesh that is being brought back to life?

A little too early to tell but it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest!

So while creepy, we really aren’t seeing anything new as much as we’re hearing it. Has this teaser continued capturing your interest for the show that the trailer did or are you waiting for more? Do you think this stitched flesh is a hint towards Frankenstein’s monster being brought to life in the first eight episodes? Share your thoughts on what you expect from ‘Penny Dreadful’ below!


Some of literature’s most terrifying characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and iconic figures from the novel Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. ‘Penny Dreadful’ is a frightening psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama.

‘Penny Dreadful’ debuts on Showtime on Sunday, May 11th at 10pm and stars: Josh Hartnett, Billie Piper, Timothy Dalton, Rory Kinnear, Harry Treadaway, Reeve Carney and Helen McCrory
