Vampire Academy–a new 10-episode horror series based on the popular YA novels of Richelle Mead–will kick off on Peacock Sept. 15, according to a report on

Mead’s six-book series–published from 2007-2010–was the inspiration for the 2014 Vampire Academy feature film from director Mark Waters. That big-screen effort–skewered by critics–earned just $15 million on its $30-million budget.

The upcoming Peacock series–from writers and showrunners Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre of The Vampire Diaries–is a story of “friendship, romance and danger” set at St. Vladimir’s Academy, a secret school “where royal vampires are educated and half-human teenagers are trained to protect their undead classmates from ruthless vampires known as Strigoi, who want to destroy them.”

Plec also serves as a director for the series, along with Billie Woodruff, Luis Prieto, Jesse Warn, Erica Dunton and Geoff Shotz.

The cast includes Sisi Stringer as Rose Hathaway, Daniela Nieves as Lissa Dragomir, Kieron Moore as Dimitri Belikov, Andre Dae Kim as Christian Ozera, J. August Richards as Victor Dashkov, Anita-Joy Uwajeh as Tatiana Vogel, Mia McKenna-Bruce as Mia Karp, Rhian Blundell as Meredith, Jonetta Kaiser as Sonya Karp and Andrew Liner as Mason Ashford.
