Showtime is sinking its teeth into a series adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s 2004 vampire novel Let the Right One In, which has previously been adapted twice for the big screen. The series is set to premiere in October, and the first teaser trailer has arrived!
Demián Bichir (The Nun) and Madison Taylor Baez (Selenra: The Series) star in Let the Right One In as Mark and his daughter Eleanor, whose lives were changed 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.
Anika Noni Rose (Body Cam), Grace Gummer (American Horror Story), Kevin Carroll (The Walking Dead), Ian Foreman (Merry Wish-Mas), Jacob Buster (Colony), and Nick Stahl (Fear the Walking Dead) also star in the series. Andrew Hinderaker (Penny Dreadful) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Also executive producing is Seith Mann (Homeland), who directed multiple episodes, including the pilot.
Showtime subscribers can catch the premiere of Let the Right One In streaming and on demand from October 7th ahead of its on-air debut on October 9th. In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer below!
