If you believed that we got all the vampire series we could out of Julie Plec you were sorely mistaken… and I don`t know if that`s a good thing tbh!
While I am sure we can all agree that „Vampire Academy” getting a series is a fantastic news, I for one am not convinced that Julie Plec was a good choice for the production team.
Sure… she gave us „TVD” and „The Originals”, however when you look at all the things that came out about how she treated certain actors and co-workers while on those shows it should give you pause.
Are we getting the best we can out of an adaptation with drama on the set? Debatable…
Silver lining – it`s been announced that the project will be a shared effort with Marguerite MacIntyre. Our favourite Mistic Falls sheriff has been involved in the production over on the other „TVD” spinn-off, „Legacies”, so I believe we are in for something that will feel quite familiar.
As it has just been announced that „Vampire Academy” is getting an addaptation, we have not been teased with any casting posibilities and have not been given any specific timeframe of when filming might start.All we can go on for now is the literature the series will be based on; Vampire Academy is a series of books by Richelle Mead that has span over 6 novels.
The univers is a mix-and-match of various ideas from previous creations that managed to morph into an interesting concept – props to the authos on this one.
In 2014 the first novel was adapted in a movie, however it did not fare as well as expected.
Updates will surely follow 😉
