Penny Dreadful Stars Tease "Much Larger" Season 2, Werewolf Action to Come

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

I already know what's wrong with you. You're unhappy. You're isolated. You think you're the cause of this unhappiness and are unworthy of affection so you've few friends. Recently you lost something you think very important. Your lover, your faith, your family, or all three. You blame yourself for this, so it makes you neurotic, and you don't sleep and don't eat, anything healthy anyway. You used to take care of your appearance, but you've lost interest in that, so you avoid mirrors. Sunlight bothers you, so you avoid that too, about which you're guilty because you think it's unhealthy and even immoral not to like the sun. You're not a woman of convention or you wouldn't be here, but you like to pretend you are so people don't notice you. But you sometimes like that as well and can dress to draw the eye. But then you think the men who look at you are fools, or worse, to be taken in by such an obvious outward show. So instead, you're drawn to dark, complicated, impossible men, assuring your own unhappiness and isolation because, after all, you're happiest alone. But not even then, because you can't stop thinking about what you've lost, again for which you blame yourself. So the cycle goes on, the snake eating its own tail. Or you can just have your teeth fixed.

Dr. Seward

It is too easy being monsters. Let us try to be human.
