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.
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?!
