Timothy Dalton in final collection of PENNY DREADFUL character posters

Showtime have been releasing a series of character posters for their upcoming fantasy/horror series Penny Dreadful. Earlier this week we bought you Billie Piper as Brona Croft, Eva Green as Vanessa Ives, Josh Hartnett as Ethan Chandler and and Reeve Carney as Dorian Gray. You can view them HERE.

Completing the collection is Timothy Dalton as intrepid explorer Sir Malcom Murray, his right-hand man Sembene played by Danny Sapani, and Harry Treadaway as Victor Frankenstein.

In Penny Dreadful, some of literature's most famously terrifying characters -- including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula, all brilliantly reimagined in a whole new light -- have become embroiled in Victorian London. The series stars Josh Hartnett (Black Hawk Down), Eva Green (Casino Royale) Timothy Dalton (The Living Daylights and License to Kill), Reeve Carney (Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Billie Piper (Doctor Who, Secret Diary of a Call Girl) and Danny Sapani (The Bill). The series is a frightening psychosexual thriller created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar® nominee John Logan (Hugo, The Aviator, Gladiator) and executive produced by Logan's Desert Wolf Productions, along with Oscar winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Skyfall) and Pippa Harris (Revolutionary Road, Call The Midwife), both of Neal Street. Of the eight episodes, the first two will be directed by Juan Antonio Bayona, who helmed The Orphanage and the acclaimed film, The Impossible starring Naomi Watts in her Oscar-nominated performance.

Penny Dreadful will premiere on Sunday, May 11th at 10PM ET/PT on Showtime.
