'Penny Dreadful' Season 3 Reveals Darker Turn of Events

The new teaser trailer for "Penny Dreadful" season 3 has finally been released and the clip hints that things will take a darker turn after Ethan Chandler admitted his role in the Mariner's Inn Massacre.

In the previous season, Ethan (Josh Hartnett) confessed he was the killer in the said massacre, and his father, Mr. Talbot, ordered him to be brought back to America in iron chains. Sir Malcolm Murray may have heard of his confession and decided to rescue his friend because the "Penny Dreadful" season 3 trailer shows him mounting his horse in the Old West, according to Fashion & Style.

Aside from that, the teaser hints at a reunion between Ethan and Vanessa (Eva Green), who is locked up in a psychiatric institution. However, their reunion could only be in a dream. Plus, Lily and Dorian are seen hosting a party at the mansion, the report details.
