By Ben Travers The cast and creator of “Penny Dreadful” sat down for a 30-minute panel discussion at their Winter TCA presentation in January. The group included John Logan, Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton, Helen McCrory and Harry Treadaway. After showcasing a new trailer to kick things off (see below), the group of five did their best to tease Season 2 without spoiling. We shall try to do the same. SPOILERS ahead

Eva Green was photographed on the set of Penny Dreadful at Ardmore Studios on February 13, 2015 in County Wicklow, Ireland. Thanks to our good friend Luciana for the HQs.
By David Crow With a new trailer, we have all the news and updates about Eva Green’s bewitching Vanessa Ives and the rest of Penny Dreadful Season 2. A familiar door been reopened. Indeed, if you listen closely, already can be heard the cries of restless spirits (or at least Showtime fans) yearning to embrace the other side of the Deminonde once more; Showtime’s Penny Dreadful is returning for
WINNER: BEST ACTRESS Eva Green (Penny Dreadful) One of the most fearless and raw tv performances in years was gifted to us by Eva Green, who played a Victorian Era woman having to battle very real inner demons. Never afraid to give her all – sometimes going to such extreme places that you almost felt empathetic exhaustion watching her – Green was absolutely riveting throughout Penny Dreadful’s first season.
By Trace Thurman Penny Dreadful – The Séance Talk about a slow burn. Penny Dreadful has one of the most interesting narratives of any TV show I’ve ever seen. Based on the pilot alone, it is clear that the destination is not what’s important with this show, but rather the journey instead. Penny Dreadful takes its sweet time getting to the point, and at first I was a little bored but after
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
By Willa Paskin Mo, you have already chimed in for Penny Dreadful, but I want to chime in particularly for Eva Green. She plays Vanessa Ives, a woman with a traumatic past and a penchant for communing with spirits. Late in the season she became possessed, and not by some semi-friendly neighborhood spirit. Ives’ possession looked painful, brutal, and physically taxing. Green threw her body around with convincing abandon and
By Collider Staff Penny Dreadful – “Closer Than Sisters” Eva Green should be getting some awards recognition for her work on Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. Want to see why? All you have to do is watch episode 5, “Closer Than Sisters.” It was pretty clear that she was going to own the show after the seance scene in episode 2, but “Closer Than Sisters” isn’t just a standout installment because
By Araceli Roach Penny Dreadful returns to Showtime in just a few months. The Gothic horror series – which boasted an all-star cast, including Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton – captured its audience by combining the right amount of sex, violence and sensational tales to keep viewers enthralled until the very end, and now it hopes to raise the stakes in season 2. Season 1 of the new
By Kara Howland Warning: Spoilers Ahead I love genre shows, so when I heard Showtime’s Penny Dreadful would include mashup of some of the best known horror villains there are — Frankenstein’s monster, vampires, a wolf man — I knew we were in for a treat. That combined with the strange and tormented lives of all the main characters makes for an interesting and intriguing show. Now that I’ve been introduced
By Jeff York Premium cable’s new horror series “Penny Dreadful” was good in its debut season, with the potential to be truly great in its sophomore effort. Star Eva Green however, was never anything less than extraordinary throughout. Whether channeling demons in a séance or archly flirting with costar Josh Hartnett, you couldn’t take your eyes off of her saucy and sinful Vanessa Ives character. And about halfway through the
