Romance, friendship, death, sex, and scandal — Vampire Academy is coming.
Based on the young adult paranormal romance novels by international bestselling author Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy is set in a world of privilege and glamour, where two young women’s friendship transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter royal vampire society. The series combines the elegance of aristocratic romance and the supernatural thrills of the vampire genre as it introduces viewers to St. Vladmir’s Academy, a secret boarding school where vampire royals are educated and half-human teens train to protect them from the savage “Strigoi” vampires who would like to see them destroyed.
