Richelle Mead‘s “Vampire Academy,” based on her six-book collection, is getting a new series adaptation from Peacock.
“Friendship, romance, and danger. 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. ”
Sisi Stringer, Daniela Nieves, Kieron Moore, Andre Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta Kaiser, and Andrew Liner star in the new series.
Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Legacies) and Marguerite MacIntyre adapted the series and serve as showrunners, as well as writers and executive producers. Directors include Bille Woodruff, Luis Prieto, Jesse Warn, Erica Dunton, Geoff Shotz, and Julie Plec.
Peacock’s “Vampire Academy” premieres on September 15, 2022. Now, sink your fangs into the new trailer for the series.
