Showtime’s Penny Dreadful has been picked up for Season 2.

Bloody Disgusting reports that the gothic horror, starring Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton, has been renewed for an expanded second season of 10 episodes, shooting in Dublin for a 2015 launch.

The show is currently halfway through its eight episode run in the US, while episode four will air on Sky Atlantic in the UK on Tuesday night. Penny Dreadful features some of the genre’s greatest characters and creatures thrown together in post-Jack the Ripper London, including Dr Frankenstein (Harry Treadaway) and his creature (Rory Kinnear). Billie Piper, Danny Sapani and Reeve Carney also star.

Penny Dreadful airs on Tuesday nights at 9pm on Sky Atlantic.
