Earlier this year when OUTinPerth chatted to actress Billie Piper we quizzed her on what happens in the second season of ‘Penny Dreadful’,but no matter how hard we begged, Piper was not giving anything up.

“I’ve just finished filming the second season.” Piper told OUTinPerth, but she was sworn to secrecy about what might happen in upcoming episodes,

“It’s such a mine field, I can’t say anything! There’s nothing I can reveal except that I come back and that’s it, that’s all I can say!”

Fans of the show won’t have to wait much longer to find out how Piper’s character Brona returns to the series.

Season two of ‘Penny Dreadful’ begins screening on Foxtel’s SHwcase channel on Thursday July 2nd at 5:30pm (WA time).

Season two opens with Vanessa Ives, played by Eva Green, being barraged by an onslaught of disturbing occult images brought on by the mysterious Evelyn Poole. While Josh Harnett’s character Ethan Chandler  decides to leave London.

‘Penny Dreadful’ draws upon many characters from 19th-century Irish and British fiction, including Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’, Mina Harker and Abraham Van Helsing from Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’, and Victor Frankenstein and his monster from Mary Shelley’sFrankenstein’.

A third series has already been announced for 2016.
