Getting into the Halloween spirit, The BBC has released a teaser trailer for their upcoming, three-part Dracula miniseries. Prepare to feel uncomfortable in all manner of ways.
Written by Sherlock creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat, the Dracula miniseries takes place in 1897; the year Bram Stoker’s classic novel was published. We don’t know much about the actual plot, but, according to the description, the series “follows Dracula from his origins in Eastern Europe to his battles with Van Helsing’s descendent and beyond”.
The iconic count is being played by Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square) and I approve of his sinister susurrations already.
Dracula won’t actually be available to watch on Halloween, but will probably be released by The BBC before the end of 2019 in the UK (y’know, in time for Christmas), with international distribution by Netflix to follow in 2020. There is no official release date, as yet.
