Last January, Peacock issued a straight-to-series order for Dead Day, a comic book adaptation coming to us from Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and Kevin Williamson (Scream). However, Variety reports that Peacock has opted not to move forward with the project after all.

Plec and Williamson were intended to serve as writers, executive producers, and co-showrunners on Dead Day, which was based on the bestselling comic book series created by Ryan Parrott. The comics were published by AterShock Comics in 2020.

Dead Day follows “an ensemble of characters as they navigate the annual ‘dead day,’ when for one night the dead come back to complete unfinished business, be that to celebrate a night back on earth or to torment the living.”

Variety notes that the studio is planning to shop the series to other outlets.
