The May 11th release date of ‘Penny Dreadful‘ is rapidly approaching and Showtime has been busy releasing featurettes and trailers to capture our interest in the show. I’ll admit, they are doing a good job. I really like the in depth featurettes that we’ve been given on how the show is made. It truly looks as if they are giving the attention to detail a series like this deserves for being a combination of a genre show and a period piece. I’m looking forward to what they are putting together.

However we can get a really good look at what they are putting together in the new photos that were released for the show below!

Photos aren’t the only thing we have to share with you today! Next up are the blurbs of the first two episodes for the show!

      Episode 1.01 – Night Work A woman and an explorer investigate the murder of someone close to them, engaging a sharp-shooter and Dr. Frankenstein for help.
      Episode 1.02 – Seance Vanessa and Sir Malcom search for answers at an Egyptionist’s party; Madame Kali hosts a séance; Ethan befriends a young Irish immigrant.

Finally I have the latest teaser trailer for you titled “Just Like You”. In this one we aren’t getting any pieces of the plot that will eventually play out on screen, but we do get a bit of details on the main characters themselves. Enjoy!

Are you as excited to see the premiere of ‘Penny Dreadful’ as I am? Do you think that visually we’ll be in for a treat? Share your thoughts 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
