The third season for Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” is starting to look more and more spectacular with all-star guests joining the already star-studded ensemble. Read on to find out more.
The ‘Cut-Wife of Ballantrae moor’ Patti Lupone is set to return in the third series as Dr. Seward, a therapist treating Eva Green’s ‘Vanessa.’ Also joining the show is Shazad Latif (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) who will play Robert Louis Stevenson’s character, Dr. Jekyll. No word on Mr. Hyde yet, but he will undoubtedly make an appearance.
Though season two saw the demise of the magnificent Sembene (played to the hilt by Danny Sapani) after falling into the hands of Ethan, we will be getting another ‘intense, enigmatic character’ in Wes Studi’s (Avatar, Last of the Mohicans) Native American ‘Kaetaney’ this season. As ‘Ethan Chandler’ was on his way to be deported back to America at the end of the second season, it is possible that the new character will be allied to him in some way. Especially since show-runner John Logan has promised to take the show away from London, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter:
“Season three is a real change of pace for us, which is good. We can get out of the alleys and cobblestone bars of Victorian London and see a bit more of the world. Essentially there’s a pull bringing these characters together and it’s supernatural, partly romantic, partly shared destiny.”
And its guest stars carnival this season with Christian Camargo (Dexter) joining as ‘Dr. Alexander Sweet’, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa. Samuel Barnett (Jupiter Ascending) will be appearing as Seward’s enigmatic secretary and Jessica Barden (The Outcast) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily and Dorian Gray. It is not known what her deal is yet, but since she is the adept of an undead immortal creature and another un-killable immortal character, it is not expected that she will be normal.
