Penny Dreadful Season 3 Trailer Is Crazy, Sexy and (Yep) Satanic

Showtime on Thursday released the official trailer for Penny Dreadful Season 3, which premieres Sunday, May 1 at 10/9c, and it’s as sumptuous and spooky as you’d expect.

PHOTOS Penny Dreadful Season 3 First Look: Vanessa Gets Committed!

Some quickie takeaways from the two-minute clip:

* Obviously, we’re getting an Ethan/Vanessa reunion.
* Sir Malcolm appears to be locked in a life or death struggle with someone(thing?).
* Lily/Brona and Dorian are without question the new power couple.
* Are those zombies breaking through the glass?!

Watch the trailer above, then read the S3 logline below, then check out the poster below that, and then hit the comments with your snappy judgements!

This season on PENNY DREADFUL, Patti LuPone (American Horror Story), 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. Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels) joins as a series regular as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Dalton).
