‘Dead Day’ Adaptation Will Not Move Forward On Peacock

by Thomas Tuna

Peacock says “drop dead” to Dead Day adaptation.

One year after Peacock announced its intention to adapt the 2020 AfterShock horror comic book Dead Day for a series, those plans have been scrapped, according to a report in Variety. Peacock reportedly will look to shop the project to other outlets.

The comic book series–from writer Ryan Parrott and artist Evgenly Bornyakov–would have been brought to the small screen by showrunners and writers Kevin Williamson (Scream) and Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries).

Dead Day follows a group of characters as they navigate the annual “dead day”–the one day the dead come back to life to complete unfinished business. And that “business” could range from celebrating one more day on Earth to tormenting the living.

The comic books spotlight the Haskins–a seemingly normal suburban family that has its hands full preparing for the zombie onslaught.
