Dracula is a Gothic novel launched in 1897, written by Bram Stoker, and which would become one of the greatest symbols of pop culture.
Starred by Count Drácula, the character starred in several other books, plays, films and series over more than a century, and we never seem to tire of getting to know the new versions of his story. The most recent is a series launched by Netflix, in partnership with the BBC, whose premiere was held on Saturday, January 4, 2020.
Check out the production trailer below:
From the same creators of Sherlock, the production is born acclaimed with Claes Bang in the leading role, embodying a seductive (and much more frightening) version of the popular villain of fiction.
The story is set in the year 1897, the same as the publication of the literary work, and has Transylvania in its setting. Count Dracula is bloodthirsty, and his plan includes a major threat against Victorian London.
In all, three episodes make up the first season of the miniseries. It may seem little, but they are quite long, reaching an hour and a half in duration each.
In addition to Sherlock’s Paul McGuigan, the episodes are directed by Jonny Campbell and Damon Thomas, known respectively for their work on Westworld and Killing Eve.
There is still no information about a possible second season.
