Based on the young adult book series of the same name, horror-drama Vampire Academy has been cancelled after just one season. The show debuted on Peacock in September of last year.
According to reports “execs at Peacock were happy with [the show] creatively but [it] just didn’t find the requisite audience to justify further seasons.”
Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and Marguerite MacIntyre served as showrunners, writers, and executive producers on Vampire Academy. Here’s the official synopsis for the series:
“In a world of privilege and glamour, two young women’s friendship transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter vampire society. One as a powerful Royal, the other a half-vampire Guardian trained to protect against the savage ‘Strigoi’ who threaten to tear their society apart. That is, if Royal infighting doesn’t do the job first. ”
Directors on Vampire Academy’s first season included Bille Woodruff, Luis Prieto, Jesse Warn, Erica Dunton, Geoff Shotz, and Julie Plec. Sisi Stringer, Daniela Nieves, Kieron Moore, Andre Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta Kaiser, and Andrew Liner starred.
