First look at NBC’s Dracula, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

While we wait and see what NBC does to "Hannibal" (the show has not been picked up for a second season yet…what are you waiting for, NBC?), the network has revealed the first images from another genre-themed series that we've been telling you about for the past year: the Jonathan Rhys Meyers-starring "Dracula".

The series, which bypassed the traditional pilot stage, takes place in the 1890's and finds Dracula (“The Tudors’” Jonathan Rhys Meyers) living a double life in London as an American businessman interested in bringing modern science to Victorian society. But his true plan — to exact revenge on those who burdened him centuries ago — is derailed when he falls in love with Mina (“Arrow”‘s Jessica DeGouw), who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Van Helsing (Thomas Kretschmann) is a brilliant professor obsessed with revenge and power. He may be a greater threat to the public than the titular count. Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie also star.

"Dracula" will be taking the 10pm Friday night slot on NBC this fall. Check out the first batch of pics below.
