Forget brooding counts and seductive sirens; Syfy’s “Reginald the Vampire” injects a dose of humor and heart into the classic monster trope for a new season. Meet Reginald Andres, an unassuming everyman whose life takes an unexpected turn – for the undead, that is. After a brush with mortality, Reginald finds himself reborn as a vampire. But unlike the sleek, sophisticated vampires of lore, Reginald doesn’t exactly scream “bloodsucker chic.”

Unlikely Hero

This is where the charm of “Reginald the Vampire” lies. Our unlikely hero struggles to navigate his newfound vampiric existence, all while grappling with the complexities of his old life. He juggles an unquenchable thirst with his day job at the Slushy Shack, and his feelings for his co-worker, Sarah, remain a delicious complication.

A quirky cast of characters helps Reginald navigate this strange new world. There’s Maurice, the cool vampire who sired Reginald, and Angela, a powerful former vampire leader whose motives remain shrouded in mystery. Adding a dash of danger is Nikki, a ruthless vampire assassin with a surprisingly soft spot for our reluctant hero. Be sure to check out our interview with the cast.


Based on the book series by Johnny B. Truant, “Reginald the Vampire” is brought to life by showrunner Harley Peyton (“Chucky”). The series boasts a talented cast, including Jacob Batalon (of “Spider-Man: No Way Home” fame) as the endearingly awkward Reginald. Em Haine portrays Sarah, the object of Reginald’s affection, while Mandela Van Peebles lends his charisma to Maurice.

Ready to Bare His Fangs Again

With its blend of comedy, horror, and relatable characters, “Reginald the Vampire” offers a refreshing take on the vampire genre. This undead tale proves that even after death, life—or should we say, unlife—can be messy, hilarious, and surprisingly heartwarming. Reginald bares his fangs for season two, premiering on May 8th at 10 p.m. on SYFY.
