School is out.

Vampire Academy–a different take on vampire lore–this week took a stake through the heart as Peacock cancelled the show after one season, according to a report on Deadline.

The short-lived 10-episode series–from showrunners Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre (and based on the Richelle Mead YA novels)–takes place in “a world of privilege and glamour, where two young women’s friendship transcends their different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter royal vampire society,” according to the logline.

The storyline is set in St. Vladimir’s Academy, a secret school where royal vampires are educated and half-human teenagers are trained to protect them from the Strigoi, who want to destroy them.

The first season’s cast featured Sisi Stringer, Daniela Nieves, Kieron Moore, Andre Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Mia Mckenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta Kaiser and Andrew Line.

The series–directed by Billie Woodruff, Luis Prieto, Jesse Warn, Erica Dunton and Geoff Shotz–was produced by Emily Cummins, Don Murphy, Susan Montford, Deepak Nayar and Jillian DeFrehn.
