The Popular British and American drama Penny Dreadful has just begun filming for its third series in Wicklow and Dublin.

The drama features numerous Irish talent including; Cork-born Sarah Greene, set director Philip Murphy as well as cinematographer John Conroy.

They join Hollywood actors Josh Hartnett and Timothy Dalton in the eerie Victorian mystical production.

The title of the series Penny Dreadful comes from a literary experience that was felt in the 19th century, which gave working class people an opportunity to read short and inexpensive fiction mainly about felonious behaviour.

Penny Dreadful will be hitting our television screens next year with nine new episodes on Sky Atlantic and Showtime.
