It’s never easy having a vampire in the family.
Let the Right One In–a vampire tale with a unique father-daughter dynamic–debuted last October, but was staked this week–with the announcement that Showtime will not renew the show for Season 2, and will also remove it from the current schedule, according to a report on Deadline.
By way of explanation, Paramount Global said Showtime will be integrated into Paramount+ across both streaming and linear later this year, and the network is reevaluating its programming slate in preparation for this move.
The 10-episode first season–from creator and showrunner Andrew Hinderaker–was inspired by the 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. Seith Mann directed the pilot, and Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements and Alissa Bachner served as executive producers.
The show follows Mark (Demian Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Madison Taylor Baez), whose lives were forever changed a decade earlier “when she was turned into a vampire,” according to the logline.
Frozen at age 12, Eleanor lives a “closed-in life–able to go out only at night–while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.”
