A while back, we showed you guys a trailer for the upcoming BBC series, Dracula. Both writers, Mark Gattis and Steven Moffat, from Sherlock and Doctor Who fame have come together to retell the classic Bram Stoker tale of Dracula. Now, we have learned that Dracula will indeed be coming to Netflix in January.
The series will of course debut on BBC One first and then come stateside via Netflix sometime in Jan. There is no solid date as to when it will hit Netflix, but BBC One will begin it’s three-night event starting Jan. 1, with the following 2 episodes dropping Jan. 2 and 3.
The series tells the story of the world’s most famous vampire as he travels from Transylvania to London and everything that happens in between. It apparently then goes beyond what we are familiar with in the book and has Dracula tango with Van Helsing’s descendants.
Claes Bang (The Square) stars as our new Dracula and is only teased at the end of the trailer. He is giving us super Christopher Lee vibes from what we see here. Everything else in the trailer is a blend of eclectic bits of the genre that we are completely onboard with.
What do you guys think? Excited to see Sherlock writers in charge of ole’ Dracula? Let us know in the comments section.
