LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Several episodes of the upcoming third season of the period drama Penny Dreadful will be filmed in Spain, Showtime confirmed.

"Shooting in the city of Almería in the Andalusia region, the episodes will follow Ethan, Sir Malcolm, new series regular Kaetenay and Hecate as they battle dark forces in the 1800s American West," a press release said.

The series is primarily set in Victorian-era England.
