An adaptation of Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy novels is heading to streaming TV. Here’s how you can enroll with the Peacock service to catch all the supernatural (and romantic) action.
Hailing from from executive producers Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries, The Originals) and Marguerite MacIntyre (The Originals), Vampire Academy promises a story of friendship, romance and danger. In a world of privilege and glamour, the friendship between two young women — Rosemarie “Rose” Hathaway and Vasilisa “Lissa” Dragomir (played by Sisi Stringe and Daniela Nieves) — transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter vampire society.
Lissa is a powerful Royal, while Rose is a half-vampire guardian trained to protect against the savage Strigoi who threaten to tear their society apart. (More character/cast details can be found below, along with a trailer.)
How to Watch Vampire Academy on Peacock Streaming
Vampire Academy will stream exclusively on Peacock beginning Thursday, Sept. 15, with the first four episodes of 10; new episodes will drop weekly every Thursday.
