Penny Dreadful’s Season 3 Trailer Cordially Reminds You That Everyone You Know Someday Will Die


From the grim, bug-eyed visage of Eva Green’s Vanessa to an exquisite, grungy-yet-ethereal take on “Do You Realize,” Penny Dreadful’s season-three trailer proudly declares that the show is back, baby, and all is extremely not well. The third season premieres on Sunday, May 1 — plenty of time to have your shroud de-grimed, your shoes de-bloodied, and your freakproof windows reinforced. All broken and shunned creatures get a plus-one.

Watch the teaser for the season below, which makes creepy-bordering-on-cheesy use of Lesley Gore’s “You Don’t Own Me.”
