” Penny Dreadful” is an American-British thriller-drama television series that made its first airing on Showtime in May 11, 2015, with eight episodes. It is currently on its second season, but was officially renewed for a third season planned for May 2016 and is to have nine episodes. The title alludes to the 19th-century penny dreadfuls — gruesome and shocking literary works having sensational characters as detectives, criminals, or supernatural beings, published weekly and each costing a penny.

The characters that find themselves in the series are drawn from fictional works of the 19th century, such as Mina Harker and Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” Victor Frankenstein and his monster from Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” and Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde’s “The Picture of Dorian Gray.”

According to tv. com, the third season will see a number of stars returning to “Penny Dreadful,” such as LuPone who will play Vanessa’s American therapist Dr. Seward, as a regular on the show, after her guesting stint in the second season as the Cut-Wife. Also joining as a regular in the new season’s run is Wes Studi (“A Million Ways to Die in the West”) who will play Kaetenay, a Native American with some striking connection to Ethan (Josh Harnett of “Pearl Harbor”).

Guesting in the new season are Shazad Latif (“The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) who will play Dr. Jekyll and Sam Barnett (“Jupiter Ascending”) as Dr. Seward’s secretary. Sarah Greene (Hecate) and Simon Russell Beale (Ferdinand Lyle) rejoin the show while Christian Camargo (“The Hurt Locker”) guest stars as the zoologist Dr. Alexander Sweet, Jessica Barden (“Far From the Madding Crowd”) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper), Reeve Carney as Dorian Gray, and Harry Treadaway as Dr. Frankenstein, among others.

“Penny Dreadful” was created, written, and produced by John Logan, and co-produced with Showtime and Sky. Full production for the third season has commenced, and currently, filming is ongoing in Dublin, Ireland.
