NEW YORK, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Showtime says it has changed the Season 2 premiere date of Penny Dreadful from April 26 to May 3.

No explanation was given for the change in schedule, but the cable television network's new comedy Happyish remains slated to premiere April 26.

Starring Eva Green, Josh Hartnett, Harry Treadway, Billie Piper, Reeve Carney and Timothy Dalton, the psychological thriller Penny Dreadful is set in Victorian-era London. It was created, written and executive produced by three-time Oscar nominee John Logan.

The 10-episode sophomore season will find "Vanessa Ives and Ethan Chandler forming a deeper bond as the group, including Sir Malcolm, Dr. Frankenstein and Sembene, unite to banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them," a synopsis said. "Meanwhile, Dorian Gray, the Creature and Brona are all waging battles of their own."
