Patti LuPone is getting in deep with the psychological horror shows.

After a memorable turn as the God-fearing Joan Ramsey on American Horror Story, EW has learned that LuPone will be heading over to Showtime to guest star on Penny Dreadful. Details about LuPone’s character are being kept under wraps for now, only being described as a “mysterious character in Vanessa’s (Eva Green) past.”

Along with LuPone, Showtime announced a slew of new guest stars for the show’s sophomore season, which include Douglas Hodge, who will play a Scotland Yard investigator assigned to follow the murder cases in London; Sarah Greene, who will play Evelyn Poole’s (Helen McCrory) daughter Hecate; and Jonny Beauchamp, who will play a mysterious man with a distinct past.

Penny Dreadful is currently in production in Dublin and is set to return in 2015 on Showtime.
