Perabo will have a recurring role as Linda Craft, the wife of Dr. Peter Craft (Kinnear), the head of the isolationist German-American Bund, and mom to Trevor (Hudson West) and Tom (Julian Hilliard). The character is unsatisfied with her suburban life.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels is described as a "spiritual successor" to Penny Dreadful, which starred Eva Green and Josh Hartnett and had a three-season run on Showtime from 2014 to 2016. Series creator John Logan will return to write and executive produce the new show.
Penny Dreadful: City of Angels follows Det. Tiago Vega (Zovatto) and his partner Lewis Michener (Lane) as they investigate a grisly murder. The characters are swept up in the social and political tensions of pre-WWII Los Angeles.
Perabo is known for playing CIA agent Annie Walker on the USA Network series Covert Affairs. She most recently starred as Sara on Turn Up Charlie, which premiered its first season on Netflix in March.
