It’s been nearly eight years since Richelle Mead’s “Vampire Academy” novels were made into a film, and now Peacock is adapting the books into a new series, and the first teaser trailer has debuted at SDCC.
“In a world of privilege and glamour, two young women’s friendship transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter vampire society. One as a powerful Royal, the other a half-vampire Guardian trained to protect against the savage ‘Strigoi’ who threaten to tear their society apart. That is if Royal infighting doesn’t do the job first.”
The cast includes Daniela Nieves, Jennifer Kirby, Craig Stevenson, Louisa Connolly-Burnham, Nikol Kollars, Alex Hafner, Blake Anderson, and more.
Julie Plec, who brought you “The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals,” and “Legacies,” and Marguerite MacIntyre adapted the series, and serve as showrunners, writers, and executive producers.
“Vampire Academy” premieres on Peacock on September 15, 2022.
