Showtime announced filming is now underway in Dublin, Ireland on the third season of Penny Dreadful. In addition to confirming the start of production, the network also revealed Tony winner Patti LuPone will return to the cast as a series regular – but there’s a twist. LuPone will play a new character in the third season, tackling the role of American therapist Dr. Seward who “treats Vanessa (Eva Green) with an unconventional new approach.”
Penny Dreadful‘s third season will also see the addition of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Dr. Henry Jekyll to the cast. Dr. Jekyll will be played by The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel‘s Shazad Latif. Additional guest stars set for season three include:
– Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Christian Camargo (Dexter) as Dr. Alexander Sweet, a zoologist who strikes up an unlikely friendship with Vanessa
– Sam Barnett (Jupiter Ascending) as Dr. Seward’s mysterious young secretary
– Wes Studi (Hell On Wheels) as Kaetenay, an intense, enigmatic Native American with a deep connection to Ethan (Josh Hartnett) who also becomes an ally to Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton)
– Jessica Barden (The Outcast) as Justine, a young acolyte to Lily (Billie Piper) and Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).
Season three of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful will consist of nine new episodes and will air in 2016.
