Penny Dreadful is ramping up the horror in Season 2.

Showtime’s gothic drama returns on Sunday, April 26 at 10/9c with more monsters and even creepier imagery than before, like this blood bath that new villain Evelyn Poole (Helen McCror) is soaking in.

And although Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) have fought off a number of creatures both alive and undead on Penny Dreadful, can they survive a car accident? Well, make that a carriage accident, since this is Victorian times after all. Want to know more of what’s coming in Season 2?

The first season of Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” explored some of horror fiction’s most famous figures, spinning a provocative yarn that weaved vampires, werewolves and demons into the more recognizable stories of Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein for a gripping and gruesome monster mash-up. While viewers may have been lured by the chance to see such iconic characters inhabiting the same screen, they stayed for the powerhouse performances from the likes of Eva Green (who played Vanessa Ives, a character original to the series) and the lavish production values, which faithfully recreated the claustrophobic streets of Victorian London and staged some impressive set pieces, from grand theater productions to an elaborate fight scene between our heroes and a vampiric horde.

When dealing with battles between supernatural creatures, viewers have high expectations, so creator John Logan turned to stunt coordinator Pete Miles, whom he had worked with on “Skyfall.”

“You want an action sequence to have its own DNA and feel to it,” Logan explains in Variety‘s exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the stunt work on the series. “We wanted the ‘Penny Dreadful’ action sequences to be appropriate to the piece, so our fights are barroom brawls; they’re really ugly and violent — it has the feeling of savagery.”

In the video above, Miles and the producers explain what went into creating some of the most challenging action scenes of the first season, which had star Josh Hartnett channeling his inner cowboy and Timothy Dalton sustaining a minor flesh wound in the heat of battle.

Can Vanessa Ives (Eva Green) ever really live a normal life on Penny Dreadful?

Or more importantly, does she even want to live a normal life?

All throughout season one of the hit Showtime drama, Vanessa was driven by her inner demons, and sometimes, she even liked the way they made her feel. They “empowered” her in a way, despite all the troubles they brought to her life.

When Showtime’s horror series returns for season two, Vanessa is going to have to make a choice about her demons: exorcise them or learn to live with them for good.

We’ve got your exclusive first look at the journey Vanessa is going to take in season two. Watch the new clip above, with commentary from Green herself!

Green also revealed that in season two of Penny Dreadful, the relationship between Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and Vanessa “is going to be very much explored.”

“They’re going to get closer,” Green said. “It’s a very beautiful relationship.”

While season two doesn’t have a premiere date scheduled yet, it is set to air in 2015.

“Sexy Vamp makes me angry“

Actress Eva Green (34) talks in an interview lasting 20 minutes about her qualities as a housewife, her true self and her reputation as a sexy Vamp.

 

Eva Green, you are often reduced to the dark, sexy Vamp. How do you explain that?

Because people have not seen all my movies. If you pigeonhole me, it makes me always a bit angry.

 

What movie should I watch to know the real Eva Green?

The real me I keep to myself. But in the movie “Womb” by Benedek Fliegauf I am playing a shy girl. This is being pretty close to me. But even strong women, being crazy, I like to play. The main thing is, that the characters are not one-dimensional.

 

You are the face of the Campari calendar 2015 with the title “Mythology Mixology“. What is so mythical about cocktails?

The Campari brand, existing over a hundred years, is absolutely timeless. This makes the mythical aura that surrounds the product.

 

Do you like to go out into bars?

Yes, sometimes I do. But only on special occasions.
