I’ve been excited for the return of Penny Dreadful since the end of the first season. The show is super weird, sexy, and all the times Gothic. Created by John Logan (Skyfall) and stars a cast of Monsters and Villains from Victorian London. The first season featured Frankenstein, Vampires, The Wolfman, and more. What will we get in season 2? I can only imagine!

While we wait for it’s return in May we have a few images to tide you over, as well as a behind-the-scenes video from the making up the upcoming season.

Here’s the official synopsis for Penny Dreadful season 2:

This season, Vanessa and Ethan form a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani), unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them. Meanwhile, Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney), the Creature (Rory Kinnear) and Brona (Billie Piper) are all waging battles of their own. Patti LuPone will guest star as a mysterious character of great importance in Vanessa’s past. Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali), the seductive spiritualist who will pose a unique threat to our protagonists this season, along with Simon Russell Beale, who is back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. Additional guest stars include Douglas Hodge as a Scotland Yard investigator; Sarah Greene as Poole’s powerful daughter, Hecate; and Johnny Beauchamp as a man with a singular past.

Penny Dreadful returns to Showtime on May 3rd.
