Penny Dreadful is set to come back with a third season and, judging by the way the last one ended, it will bring a darker, more twisted sense to the show than we have ever experienced until now. After having confronted Satan in the season’s finale, many fans of the show are waiting for what Penny Dreadful Season 3 has in store. Last season, the group disbanded, each one of them leaving for a distant part of the world in order to confront their demons in solitude.
This brings a lot of diversity to the show, but it can also develop into a more frightening story.
Vanessa remains in London, surrounded by no friends and having betrayed and betrayed by God. Her faith has never been rewarded, so instead of moving forward with a false hope, she decides to move alone, confronting and accepting the darkness within her. She remains the most “dangerous” character in the series because she has great power with or without the fallen angel at her side.
Ethan Chandler looks like he has to face his father, which could definitely spice up his storyline. We do not know much about Ethan’s past apart from what he has revealed in the show, but his circumstances might have forced him to tell “altered truths”. We will have the chance to see Mr. Chandler in his “usual” habitat and witness how his relationship with his father might empower him, or destroy him?
Sir Malcom left to burry Simbene, Dr. Frankenstein chose to embrace his despair, the Creature left for distant, frozen lands and, of course, Dorian is still on London with his new bride. The dispersion of the characters has given the series a lot to explore in terms of storyline and locations, but to what end? While we bear witness to them being apart from each other, we know, deep in our hearts, that all these characters are meant to unite once again. It is their fate.
But the new season bring old and new faces alike. The Cut-Wife will also be making an appearance in season 3, but not as the Cut-Wife we all know and love. LuPone will now be an American therapist, Dr. Seward, who will be helping Vanessa in a rather unusual way. This drop of information gives life to so many questions. Is the Cut-Wife reincarnated or is she just a simple recast? What is this “unusual treatment”? In the end, is she returning as a friend, or as foe?
Rumor has it that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde will make an appearance as well, breathing more life into the story’s horror.
We are looking forward to the new Penny Dreadful season and we want to know your opinions about the re-emerging LuPone and the introduction of the split-personality Dr. Jeykll.
