Dracula is coming and he wants revenge.
We’ve still got a few weeks to go before the new series debuts on NBC, but we’ve seen the first two episodes and we’re already dying for more.
Dracula stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the infamous vampire who has just arrived in 19th century London after being freed from the tomb where he’s been imprisoned.
But of course he can’t just walk in and introduce himself as Dracula so instead he’s posing as Alexander Grayson, an American entrepreneur who wants to bring electricity to London. In the pilot, he invites the who’s who of society to a party to show off just how promising the technology can be, but that’s hardly the only reason he’s there.
Not only does he want revenge on those who cursed him with immortality to begin with, he wants to avenge his wife’s death. But the night of his big party, he meets a woman named Mina Murray (Jessica De Gouw), who just happens to look exactly like his dead wife.
Will she distract him from his mission? Will his enemies figure out what he’s really doing in London? Check out the photo gallery from the pilot and then hit the comments and let us know if you’ll be checking out the show!
Dracula premieres Friday, Oct. 25 at 10/9c on NBC.
