Production on the third series of Sky Atlantic and Showtime drama series Penny Dreadful is currently under way, and a wealth of new and returning stars is headed to the set in Dublin, Ireland.
Patti LuPone, 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 (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach. Also, this season will add Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll to the lineup of literary characters featured in the show, to be played by Shazad Latif.
The third series’ nine episodes, airing on Sky Atlantic in 2016, will feature several new guest stars, including Christian Camargo as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa; Sam Barnett as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary; Wes Studi as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton); and Jessica Barden as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).
Penny Dreadful is a frightening psychological thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan.
