Showtime Picks Up Pilot For ‘Let The Right One In’ Series

The vampire series Let the Right One In finally sank its fangs into Showtime.

The show–based on the 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and its 2008 Swedish film adaptation–was originally developed by Tomorrow Studios in 2015, but bounced around until ultimately landing with Showtime, as reported by Deadline.

Showtime now has green lit the pilot and a 10-episode order that will start production in New York City in early 2022. The series comes from showrunner and screenwriter Andrew Hinderaker and director Seith Mann, who will helm the pilot and several other episodes.

Let the Right One In–which stars Demian Bichir, Anika Noni Rose, Grace Gummer, Madison Taylor Baez, Kevin Carroll, Ian Foreman and Jacob Buster–follows Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez) “whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire,” according to the official synopsis.

Locked into age 12–perhaps forever–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.”

Bichir acts as a producer of the series, with Hinderaker, Mann, Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements serving as executive producers for Tomorrow Studios.

No debut date on Showtime has been set at this time, so keep reading Horror News Network for the latest on Let the Right One In.
