Vampire Academy is set to premiere on Peacock in 2022. Based on Richelle Mead’s book series of the same name, the upcoming TV series counts Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre as its showrunners, and they also serve as writers and executive producers. As Vampire Academies premiere edges closer following its initial announcement in May 2021, more details promise to emerge. Additionally, the cast of Vampire Academy made their appearance at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con and had a lot to say about the exciting new Peacock series.
Vampire’s Academy’s TV incarnation isn’t the series’ first adaptation to the screen. In 2014, Netflix released a feature film of the same title, starring the likes of Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, and Olga Kurylenko. The network later canceled a potential sequel to the movie after it failed to perform as expected. Eight years later, Vampire Academy returns to live-action with a new cast and production team.
The release of Vampire Academy season 1 will consist of 10 one-hour episodes on Peacock. The 2022 San Diego Comic-Con released a lot of details about the new series, such as the release date, a teaser trailer, and some story details. Here’s everything we know about Vampire Academy if or now.
Vampire Academy Cast & Characters
Vampire Academy‘s announced cast sees Mortal Kombat‘s Sisi Stringer portrays the series’ main character, Rose Hathaway, a half-vampire, half-human known as a Dhampir. Daniela Nieves will play Lissa Dragomir, a Moroi Vampire, and Rose’s best friend. Kieron Moore will fill the role of Rose’s love interest, Dimitri Belikov. Finally, André Dae Kim (from the Locke & Key cast) will be playing Lissa’s own love interest, Christain Ozera.

Vampire Academy Story Details
Vampire Academy follows protagonist Rose Hathaway, a vampire/human hybrid who trains at St. Vladimir’s Academy to become a guardian of her best friend, Lissa Dragomir — the last member of her royal family. In the process, Rose falls in love with her instructor Dimitri Belikov. According to Peacock, the Vampire Academy series “combines the elegance of aristocratic romance and the supernatural thrills of the vampire genre” in a “sexy drama.” The Netflix movie only adapted material from the first novel, and season 1 of Peacock’s Vampire Academy promises to do the same. The official plot synopsis of Vampire Academy describes two friends of different social statuses who attempt to complete their training to join the rest of the vampire world. While one is a powerful royal, the other is a half-vampire Guardian that is sworn to protect their society from Strigoi. However, the relationship grows complicated as royal in-fighting threatens to tear the fabric of their world apart.
Vampire Academy Release Date Prediction
At the San Diego Comic-Con, an official release date for Vampire Academy was finally revealed. Vampire Academy will premiere on Peacock on September 15th, 2022. Showrunners Plec and McIntyre kept the details of the new series tightly under wraps for quite a long time. Still, vampire aficionados can finally breathe easy knowing that the Vampire Academy debut is only a couple of short months away, giving people plenty of time to catch up on the book series.
The Vampire Academy Teaser Trailer Has Dropped
The first footage for the much-anticipated vampire show Vampire Academy dropped during the Winter Olympics, giving people a couple of seconds to see what’s to come from the new series. It wasn’t until the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con that viewers were given a more in-depth look at the cast and storyline of Vampire Academy. The trailer reveals that Lissa must take on new responsibilities as she prepares to become the head of the prolific Dragomir family. In the meantime, Rose is training to become a Guardian and declares that she will stop at nothing to protect her best friend. Although Lissa has some doubts about her new role, Rose makes sure she knows that she’s there for her until the bitter end. The trailer also gives a first glimpse of the antagonistic creatures, known as the Strigoi.
Is Vampire Academy Connected To Vampire Diaries?
Vampire Academy‘s title will have many wondering whether it coincides with the popular CW show, The Vampire Diaries. While they may appear similar at first glance, Peacock’s Vampire Academy is completely unrelated and based on its own set of six YA novels of the same name by author Richelle Mead. Although no narrative connection exists between the two shows, they both share the involvement of Plec, who created and wrote The Vampire Diariesas well as its two spinoffs, The Originals, and Legacies.
