Showtime’s series adaptation of Let the Right One In is picking up momentum. Based on the iconic 2004 novel by Swedish author John Ajvide Lindqvist, Away‘s Andrew Hinderaker is bringing the epic vampire tale to TV. EW has just shared the first images from the series via Instagram.

Set in New York City, the series stars Demián Bichir, Anika Noni Rose, Grace Gummer, Madison Taylor Baez, Kevin Carroll, Ian Foreman, Jacob Buster, and Nick Stahl. Stahl stars as Matthew in Let the Right One In, as “a former soldier and fiercely loyal fixer for the Logan family, whose clean-cut, mild-mannered exterior belies a savagery beneath.”

 

The [original] film is about a relationship between an isolated bullied boy and an isolated lonely girl, who we learn is a vampire. What I found so compelling about that film is there’s a much smaller relationship between the vampire and [her] adult caretaker. I really used the film as inspiration for a story that really focuses on a 12-year-old girl who has been a vampire for 10 years. She has been taken care of by her father, who keeps her alive, who keeps them ahead of the law, and who has kept hope alive for both of them that one day they will find a cure and this won’t be her life always. ” Showrunner Andrew Hinderaker told Entertainment Weekly.

As soon as the premiere date is announced we’ll let you know. In the meantime, you can watch the movie for on Prime Video, Showtime, and free on Pluto TV.
