There’s still over a month before “Penny Dreadful” premieres on Showtime, but thanks to a new behind-the-scenes featurette, you can get to know the characters you’ll be following a bit.
In the above video, the characters of Josh Hartnett, Timothy Dalton and Eva Green are profiled, as they spiral into a mysterious world filled with supernatural elements, all of which are used to very creepy effect in the short clips shown. They are only three members of a giant cast, though. There’s bound to be plenty more to come, including former “Doctor Who” companion Billie Piper, who plays Irish immigrant Brona Croft.
“Penny Dreadful” premieres Sunday, May 11 on Showtime.

You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
