Back in 2014, Richelle Mead‘s “Vampire Academy” book series was adapted for a feature film. Now, it’s getting its own television series adaptation, THR reports.
Julie Plec who brought us “The Vampire Diaries” is sinking her teeth into the series and will serve as showrunner along with Marguerite MacIntyre who starred in “The Vampire Diaries” and was both a writer and a producer for its spin-off “The Originals”.
The first season of “Vampire Academy” will feature ten episodes that will air on Peacock’s streaming service. Neither the premiere date nor cast has been announced.
“Set in a world of privilege and glamour, Vampire Academy follows two young women’s friendship that transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter royal vampire society. This serialized and sexy drama combines the elegance of aristocratic romance and the supernatural thrills of the vampire genre.”
Vampire Academy was first published in 2007 and went on to include six young-adult vampire romance novels. The film adaptation, directed by Mark Waters, starred  Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, and Danila Kozlovskiy.
