And, the streaming network announced the release date!
While the world waits hopelessly for a new season of Moffat and Gatiss's acclaimed Sherlock series, the duo has at least brought us another unique take on a classic Victorian character: Dracula.
Based just on the glimpses provided by the trailer, he seems like everything a ideal Dracula should be, and hopefully more.
The show, produced by Hartswood Films, who also made Sherlock, will air on BBC One on New Year's Day before going to Netflix for a global premiere.
Jonny Campbell (Westworld), Damon Thomas (Killing Eve) and Paul McGuigan (Sherlock) direct the collection. The guys over Cinemassacre, a YouTube channel, put together a video showing which of the Dracula movies were most faithful to the original story. Based on the trailers, the series is every bit the gothic horror it should be - deliciously lavish, wickedly amusing, compellingly grotesque, and horrifically frightening. Count Dracula is played by Claes Bang.
The series will follow the vampire "from his origins in Eastern Europe to his battles with Van Helsing's descendant and beyond". We'll get to see major points of Dracula's life, which will likely include the battle with Van Helsing. It appears to be a little more violent and bloody, which can make the series even scarier if the blood and gore are used properly.
Dracula is inspired by Bram Stroker's classic novel and was written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Broken nails, gruesome wounds, dark screams in the night - this looks and sounds like a real horror series.
