Having dealt with terrorists, serial killers, and sex masters over the last few years, Showtime is now turning its focus to literal monsters with Penny Dreadful, a period horror drama that's set in the Victorian era and brings monsters from literary fiction to life—think Dorian Gray, Frankenstein and his monster, and more.
Penny Dreadful stars Josh Hartnett, Eva Green, Billie Piper, Rory Kinear, and Timothy Dalton, and is set to debut in just under two weeks, on Sunday, May 11 at 10pm. But because Showtime thinks it might be the kind of show that will bring in new subscribers, the network has posted the first episode online, early for free!
