Penny Dreadful is almost back — and by the looks of this new trailer, it’s bringing nightmares with it.

Shadowy creatures, bloody mouths, padded rooms, and long needles all feature in this extended look at the gothic drama’s third season, which finds Vanessa (Eva Green) pursued by dark forces once again. After a season finale that sent them to all corners of the earth, Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton) seem poised to reunite to protect her, but will their efforts be enough?

“You might be done with hell,” says Wes Studi’s Kaetenay, one of the new players on the scene, “but it’s not done with you.”

Other guest stars for the season include Brian Cox as Ethan’s father, Jared Talbot, Shazad Latif as Dr. Jekyll, Christian Camargo, Sam Barnett, Jessica Barden, and Perdita Weeks.

Check out the trailer above to watch the monsters try to be human.

Penny Dreadful returns May 1 on Showtime.
