Deadline is reporting that Netflix and BBC one are officially on board for three part series based on Bram Stoker‘s classic Dracula. With the first rumblings on the series starting in 2017, the show is set to make its premiere on BBC One in the UK and then outside of the UK on Netflix. No release date has been scheduled as of yet.
The series based on the horror icon will be written, created, and produced by Stephen Moffett and Mark Gatiss. According to Deadline, the two commented “There have always been stories about great evil. What’s special about Dracula, is that Bram Stoker gave evil its own hero.” Ever since Nosferatu hit the screen in 1929, there have been countless interpretations of vampires on the big sand small screens. With Netflix in the middle of a big hot streak right now with hits like Stranger Things and its latest, Haunting of Hill House, horror fans will no doubt be interested to see what they deliver Dracula.
