at . Comments

Showtime scared up a good time at Comic-Con last night, as creator John Logan and stars Josh Hartnett, Reeve Carney and Harry Treadaway talked to TV Fanatic about Penny Dreadful Season 1 and what we can expect on Penny Dreadful Season 2.

For starters, Logan said the new season will greatly expand the show's characters and family, taking us further inside the lives of these unique individuals.

While also providing some fun "werewolf action," of course.

And that action is due to Hartnett, who came out as this creature on Penny Dreadful Season 1 Episode 8.

In the following interview, the actor talks about the research he did to get into character and to familiarize himself with the era:

Treadaway, meanwhile, got to know a lot about Victor Frankenstein across Season 1, as he explains in this Q&A:

Finally, Carney was involved in a number of very intense scenes. Did he actually enjoy his time on the show? And how are carpenters akin to actors?

Penny Dreadful Quotes

Dracula: Who are you to defy me?
Vanessa: I am nothing. I am no more than a blade of grass. But I am. You think you know evil? Here it stands.

Orderly: I'll tell you what happened. I was at home, yesterday night past. And I was helping my son with a wooden ship model. That's something we do. And he asked me about the ship. I said it was a kind of ship used for exploring the seas. And he said, "Where do they explore, father?" And I told him everywhere. The orient. Peru. And even the frozen north. And he says, "What's that, Father?" And so I told him. "It's the places all covered with snow. North of Scotland and even beyond that." And he said, "Do people live there?" And I said to him, "No, it's too cold and lonely all the time. No one lives there." And I started to cry and I couldn't stop. My son took my hand, and I couldn't stop crying.
Vanessa: Why?
Orderly: Because I realized I was wrong. One person does live there. Where it's cold and lonely all the time. So I tendered my resignation. I'll stay long enough to see you tomorrow. The last person you see before the surgery will be someone who loves you.
