by Thomas Tuna

Summer’s winding down–first day of school is almost here. Even for vampires.

And to get everyone in the scholastic frame of mind, Peacock has dropped the first full trailer for Vampire Academy–a new 10-episode horror series based on the bestselling YA novels of Richelle Mead–that debuts Sept. 15. Check out the clip–courtesy of Collider–on this page.

The series–from writers and showrunners Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre (The Vampire Diaries)–tells a story of “friendship, romance and danger” 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,” according to the synopsis.

Plec is also one of the directors–along with Billie Woodruff, Luis Prieto, Jesse Warn, Erica Dunton and Geoff Shotz.

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

Mead’s six-book YA series was adapted for the big screen in 2014’s Vampire Academy with disastrous results. The feature film–panned by critics–earned just $15 million on a $30-million budget.
