To get new fans hooked on the series before its return next year, Penny Dreadful has made its first two episodes free to stream on YouTube. The Showtime horror series focuses on characters from literary classics like Frankenstein, The Picture of Dorian Gray and Dracula as they interact in 19th century England.
Penny Dreadful will return next year for a 10-episode season, hopefully with a whole lot of additional viewers on board for the continuing adventures of Dorian Gray, Victor Frankenstein & Co.. The series was created by screenwriter John Logan (Skyfall, Hugo) and stars Reeve Carney, Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Rory Kinnear, Billie Piper, Danny Sapani, Harry Treadaway and Josh Hartnett.
