A literal bloodbath stars in 'Penny Dreadful' season 2 trailer

Posted on

There will be blood in the second season of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. Lots of it.

In this latest trailer, one character uses blood to finger-paint on a floor while another bathes in a tub full of the bright red liquid, all while an extra-slow (and extra eerie) version of the folk song “An Unquiet Grave” plays in the background.

Now’s a good time to warn that the horror series, which features characters from real-life 19th century fiction including Dorian Gray and Frankenstein, isn’t for the hemophobic. 

Penny Dreadful, starring Josh Hartnett and Eva Green, returns to Showtime April 26 at 10 p.m.
