Penny Dreadful fans have been rejoicing over the show's renewal for a third season, which is coming May 1. Created by Showtime and based on 19th century British horror stories called "penny dreadfuls," the series merges the real Victorian London with a paranormal dimension filled with characters from our favorite works of literature.

Watch The Teaser Trailer For Season 3

After releasing a disturbing poster, Showtime has been teasing the new Season with this trailer, for which Lesley Gore's You Don't Own Me provides a chilling musical background. The preview is packed with so many fleeting shots that we can only be asking for more.

Dr. Jekyll Joins Frankenstein, Dorian Gray

Joining Eva Green, Timothy Dalton, and Josh Hartnett as the show's main cast, we'll see Tony Award winner Patti LuPone as Dr. Seward, who will be treating Green's character Vanessa quite brutally, judging from the padded white walls visible in the trailer. Shazad Latif (Spooks) will guest star as Dr. Jekyll, introducing narrative elements of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to the show.

Penny Dreadful will premiere again May 1.
