Peacock Releases Vampire Academy Trailer

Peacock just dropped a trailer for a new young adult series, Vampire Academy, set to premiere on September 15.

The trailer shows what appears to be another alternate universe-type story with another private school for those with a supernatural nature, St. Vladimir’s. Rose (Sisi Stringer) is a vampire hybrid training to protect vampire royalty. Lissa Dragomir (Daniela Nieves) is a Royal Moroi vampire. Rose and Lissa develop a friendship as they each are being trained for their respective roles in vampire society.

 “I want to do my sworn duty. I want to protect my best friend from danger and I want a life to call my own,” Rose says. We also see her and her friend undergoing training for their respective transitions into their adult roles. The word “Rebellion” flashes across the screen at one point as the action scenes flicker to suggest a great battle. The series looks as if it will be action-packed with fight scenes and some soapy romance.

Vampire Academy is a young adult romance/adventure series from Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntryre. The series is the latest of a string of young adult-geared supernatural romance series based on a series of novels by Richelle Mead. Kieron Moore, Andre Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Mia Mckenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta, and Andrew Liner. Plec and MacIntyre serve as showrunners, writers, and executive producers. In addition, Plec also served as a director. Serving as executive producers are Emily Cummins, Don Murphy, Susan Montford, Deepak Nayar, and Jillian DeFrehn. Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, produces Vampire Academy.

Plec is no stranger to vampires since she served as co-creator on the CW’s The Vampire Diaries. Variety reported that Vampire Academy serves as the flagship production for Peacock’s partnership with Plec. Variety quotes Plec stating back in May 2021, “When I signed my new deal with Universal Television, they asked what project I had always been dying to make and my immediate answer was Vampire Academy.”

Vampire Academy debuts on Peacock on September 15. The season includes 10 one-hour episodes.
