Take a bite out of the first official teaser trailer for Netflix and The BBC’s Dracula, which was developed by the creators of the network’s hit Sherlock show. The three-part series stars Claes Bang in the titular role and just finished filming this past August.
With this only being the first teaser, we can expect the premiere to be at least a couple months away yet, but that much has yet to be revealed. For now, however, you can catch a glimpse at what this series has in store for us by watching the above teaser.
Written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, with episodes directed by Jonny Campbell, Damon Thomas, and Paul McGuigan, the series is inspired by Bram Stoker’s classic novel and will re-introduce the world to Dracula, the vampire who made evil sexy. In Transylvania in 1897, the blood drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. Claes Bang (The Girl in the Spider's Web, The Square) plays the titular role of Dracula.
The series additionally stars John Heffernan (The Crown), Joanna Scanlan (Hold the Sunset), Dolly Wells (Can You Ever Forgive Me), Lujza Richter (Phantom Thread), Sacha Dhawan (The Boy with the Top Knot), Jonathan Aris (Sherlock), Morfydd Clark (Patrick Melrose), Nathan Stewart-Jarrett (Misfits), Catherine Schell (Doctor Who), Youssef Kerkour (Home), and Clive Russell (Game of Thrones).
The cast also includes Lyndsey Marshal (The League of Gentlemen), Chanel Cresswell (The Bay), Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game), Lydia West (Years & Years), Paul Brennen (Wild Bill), Sarah Niles (Catastrophe), Sofia Oxenham (Poldark), John McCrea (God’s Own Country), Phil Dunster (Humans), and Millicent Wong.
