We’ve still got a while to go until Penny Dreadful returns, but Showtime just unveiled the very first image as well as a few additional details regarding what Vanessa (Eva Green), Ethan (Josh Hartnett) and the rest of the gang are up to in the new season.

There's no guarantee that this "deeper bond" means romance, but it does seem like a safe bet. Hit the jump to check out the first Penny Dreadful season 2 image and to catch the new story details as well.

Are Penny Dreadful‘s Ethan and Vanessa out of the woods yet?
Showtime on Friday released the first image from Dreadful‘s upcoming second season — premiering sometime in 2015 — which finds Josh Hartnett‘s character comforting Eva Green‘s against a forest-y backdrop.
The drama’s first season ended with Vanessa facing the possibility of a future as a normal human, and Ethan transforming into a bloodthirsty werewolf — so, really, there’s a lot of comforting needed all around.
Showtime has just sent out the first photo from the second season of its acclaimed Gothic horror series "Penny Dreadful" which is currently shooting in Dublin ahead of a second quarter 2015 premiere.
The premium cable network has also released some more details regarding what to expect in the next season which will see Vanessa (Eva Green) and Ethan (Josh Hartnett) form a deeper bond as they, Sir Malcolm (Timothy Dalton), Dr. Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway), and Sembene (Danny Sapani) unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them.
Helen McCrory returns as Evelyn Poole (a.k.a. Madame Kali) who will have a much bigger presence next year as more of an antagonist. Simon Russell Beale will also be back as eccentric Egyptologist Ferdinand Lyle. »

The first season of Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful” explored some of horror fiction’s most famous figures, spinning a provocative yarn that weaved vampires, werewolves and demons into the more recognizable stories of Dorian Gray and Victor Frankenstein for a gripping and gruesome monster mash-up. While viewers may have been lured by the chance to see such iconic characters inhabiting the same screen, they stayed for the powerhouse performances from the likes of Eva Green (who played Vanessa Ives, a character original to the series) and the lavish production values, which faithfully recreated the claustrophobic streets of Victorian London and staged some impressive set pieces, from grand theater productions to an elaborate fight scene between our heroes and a vampiric horde.

"I love the one where I'm on the moon," Eva Green remarks as she flips through her Campari calendar images with People. "The astronaut outfit and the hairdo is really cool. And the Negroni shot, where I'm in a Vivienne Westwood courtesan outfit, has such a laid-back, romantic mood." The Penny Dreadful star, 34, is the face of the liqueur's 2015 calendar, shot by Julia Fullerton-Batten and celebrating the stories behind the brand's classic cocktails. With only 9,999 copies printed each year, the calendar never goes on sale but is instead distributed to friends of Campari. "It's such an iconic brand and very artistic, »

When reading classic 19th century novels like Dracula, Frankenstein and The Picture of Dorian Gray in high school English class, did you ever yawn and think, “Gee, this is all fine and well, but I would enjoy this story so much more with a healthy dose of sex, demonic possession and Eva Green?” Well, then I have the show for you! In fact, even if you enjoyed those stories on their own merits, with no wish for additional otherworldly and R-rated shenanigans, then you’ll still likely enjoy Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, the first season of which is now available on Blu-ray.

It combines classic characters from the aforementioned novels with a »

These gruesome tales of the supernatural feature a ghastly vampire, a depraved Victor Frankenstein, Eva Greens demonic medium, and many more ...
Its Victorian life, but not as we know it. Not by a long chalk, actually. Created by John Logan, the man who penned the Bond film Skyfall, Penny Dreadful reimagines the late 19th century as a sleazy hotbed of supernatural activity, inhabited by hedonists, swines, ghosts, ghoulies and fictional horror characters come to life. At the time, real penny dreadfuls (cheap, lurid books aimed at young men) caused outrage and moral panic with their torrid tales of debauchery and death. Logans show is no less trashy: this is goth-schlock of the highest order.
Timothy Dalton, sporting a distinctive grey beard, plays the renowned explorer Malcolm Murray who many years ago and in largely unexplained circumstances lost his daughter to a vampire known as The Master. He needs her childhood friend Vanessa Ives, »

Eva Green has played a couple of strong female characters in two Frank Miller adaptations this year, and she was easily the highlight of both. However, the majority agree that she should be looking for better movies, especially when you consider her impressive work in Penny Dreadful! Talking to the Evening Standard recently, she said: "There are simply not enough good roles for women and for the last 20 years it has been so male-dominated and continues to be so," adding that television is helping to change that. With any luck we'll see her in a Marvel or DC Comics movie before long, but for now, enjoy this photoshoot featuring Green for the 2015 Campari calendar. »
