We have to admit, that The Vampire Academy movies weren’t our favorite. I know, I know – shocker. But the story is a good story and it would have always worked better as a TV show and that has been something we have always said.
If we’re wrong, we can say we’re wrong. But we are thinking that we weren’t the only ones that thought this, being as it was announced today that Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre, are adapting the books for television.
The series has landed at Peacock.
The streamer has ordered the ten-episode series in straight-to-series deal, which falls under Plec’s deal with Universal Television.
“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,” said Plec.
Plec has long wanted to adapt the series. She manifested it back on 2015 as seen in the tweet above.
“Julie Plec created one of the biggest fan-favorite universes with The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off series The Originals and Legacies, and we are excited to deliver this passionate audience a brand new story on Peacock,” added Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “Julie is known for binge-able, enthralling dramas and we know Vampire Academy will keep Peacock viewers right on the edge of their seats.”
“From The Vampire Diaries to The Originals, Julie has mastered captivating audiences with memorable characters, compelling storylines and delicious escapism,” said Erin Underhill, President, Universal TV. “Vampire Academy delivers them all. We are very excited to see Julie’s ambitious and creative vision of this distinct world come to life, and can’t wait to share the series with Peacock viewers. I have no doubt fans will love what she’s cooked up.”
