Penny Dreadful Season 3 Trailer Warns That 'Darkness Will Soon Be Upon Us'

No one deserves a relaxing island vacation more than Penny Dreadful‘s Vanessa Ives — but judging by the latest Season 3 trailer, she won’t be sunbathing in the Caribbean anytime soon.

Rather, in the newest preview for Showtime’s gothic-horror drama, Eva Green’s troubled protagonist is trying to escape yet another supernatural foe. And she’s tasked with preventing the end of days. Because that’s easy.

Although last July’s finale found Sir Malcolm, Ethan Chandler, et al. scattering in different directions, the video above teases their inevitable reunion, as they band together to save Vanessa from the demons that haunt her. (And we sure hope that casket at the two-minute mark doesn’t contain someone we love.)

Penny Dreadful returns Sunday, May 1, at 10/9c. In the meantime, press PLAY above for the latest glimpse at Season 3.
