Vampire lovers have another series to look forward to: bestselling author V.E. Schwab’s short story First Kill is getting a Netflix adaptation. First Kill was published in the anthology Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite that was released last month. Schwab will be a writer for the eight episode series and will also be an executive producer. The showrunner will be Empire’s Felicia D. Henderson, who will also be serving as a writer and executive producer. Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss will be producing the show as well, through their company Belletrist Productions.

First Kill follows teenage vampire Juliette and  teen vampire hunter Caillope, as each attempt to kill each other and take their place among their prestigious families. However, things get difficult when both girls realize the other isn’t as easy to kill as they thought, and to make things even more complicated, they start to fall for each other.

Stay tuned for further details, including casting and release dates!

Sarah joined Nerds and Beyond in 2019 to write about her many nerdy passions. With a Masters degree in Marine Biology, many question her decision to move to the desert (aka Las Vegas), but she is normally too preoccupied with teaching them about sea turtles to notice their concern. She refuses to fit in a box and lives her life on her own terms, sometimes in spite of societal norms. She loves to travel any chance she gets, which usually involves seeing her favorite band, Louden Swain. When at home, she enjoys binge-watching tv shows on her "to watch" list, working on craft projects, trying new recipes, and planning more travel.
