A new show from the makers of BBC’s hit series, Sherlock, will be based on a favorite character of popular fiction. A new adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Today the first teaser of the upcoming TV mini-series was posted to the BBC’s social media. Being released later this year, Dracula will air on BBC in the United Kingdom and worldwide on Netflix, but no official release date has been revealed.
The series is written and co-produced by Stephen Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Who has previously worked together on Doctor Who. It stars Claes Bang as the blood-sucking count Dracula, Jonathan Aris, who is known to Sherlock fans as Anderson, and more. Co-producer and writer Mark Gatiss will also star in an undisclosed role.

In the teaser, fans get a first look at Dracula and some other characters. As it is only a teaser, we get nothing more but a few short glimpses. However, the editing of the teaser already promises a moody, Victorian-inspired atmosphere. With the tag line “Try to stay calm,” the creators have probably achieved the exact opposite reaction from the fans who are eagerly awaiting the series premiere.
