Netflix and BBC’s Dracula has made announced more additions to the cast of their three-part series. Check out all the details here!

Wake up, vampire fans! According to a report from Variety, there is more news about the upcoming Dracula series. Not only has the show cast more actors in the series but they’ve set up a few directors as well.

It was announced late last year that Sherlock creators, Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat will be writing and producing the mini-series. Additionally, in early 2019, Claes Bang was announced to play the iconic role of Dracula.

The new additions to the cast include Jonathan Aris (Black Mirror: Bandersnatch), Sacha Dhawan, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Catherine Schell, Youssef Kerkour, and Clive Russell. Who they’ll play on the show has yet to be announced.

With production already started, the directors of the three-part series have been announced as well. Johnny Campbell will be directing the premiere episode, Damon Thomas is set to direct episode 2, and Paul McGuigan will helm episode 3.

While the series will eventually be on Netflix so the US can view the show, it will air first on BBC One. It will then be released internationally.

There is next to nothing known about the plot but Gatsis and Moffat have said they will be giving it a similar treatment to what they’ve done to Sherlock. It looks like Dracula is coming to the 21st century. It will definitely be interesting to see how they make the story more modern.

When the show will air is also a bit of a mystery. It should air sometime in late 2019 or 2020. We’ll be sure to let you know about the show’s release date when we find out more information. We should find out more in the next few months.
