Vampire Academy might be the present you have been searching for in case you have a thirst for vampire fare.
Peacock on Wednesday dropped the full-length trailer for the freshman season of the upcoming drama.
“From executive producers Julie Plec & Marguerite MacIntyre comes a story of 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,” the logline teases.
“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 first 4 episodes drop Sept. 15, with new episodes weekly on Thursdays.
The sequence stars Sisi Stringer, Daniela Nieves, Kieron Moore, André Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Mia Mckenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta Kaiser, and Andrew Liner.
“Though we have loved Richelle Mead’s wholly original book series since it came out 15 years ago, it has never been more timely,” Plec and MacIntyre stated in an announcement.
“A brilliant exploration of an inherently unbalanced class-based society, with pampered Royals on one end, and a Guardian class whose sole purpose is to protect them on the other, as well as an ugly dynastic change on the horizon, it’s a world teetering on the edge.”
“And although set in an enclave (most) Humans are unaware of, it’s a world that’s all too recognizable…”
The sequence has been within the works for some time now, the lengthy wait is sort of over.
The trailer actually provides a style of what is to return, and if the completed product is as intriguing because the trailer, we may have a success on our palms.
We’ve had loads of wonderful vampire sequence, and we’re cautiously optimistic about this one with Plec and MacIntyre on the wheel.
