LuPone Comforts Green In First Look At 'Penny Dreadful's' Third Season

When "Penny Dreadful" returns for its third season in 2016, things won't be easy for Vanessa Ives. As revealed in Showtime's first photo from season three, Eva Green's Vanessa will be seeking asylum -- literally.

The photo shows Vanessa, clad in a straightjacket and emotionally drained in a padded cell. By her side, though, is new series regular Patti LuPone. The two-time Tony Award winner plays psychiatrist Dr. Seward, a character described by Showtime as being charged with helping Green's character battle "the evil forces she cannot seem to escape."

In addition to adding LuPone full time, "Penny Dreadful" will also feature Shazad Latif as an interpretation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll.

"Penny Dreadful's" nine-episode third season will premiere on Showtime in 2016.
