The visionaries behind the hit series Vampire Diaries are moving from one undead property to another. Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec are adapting the AfterShock comic Dead Day by Ryan Parrott and Evgeniy Bornyakov for the streaming service Peacock. The synopsis of the project is as follows:
Based on the AfterShock comic book series created by Ryan Parrott, the show follows “an ensemble of characters as they navigate the annual ‘dead day,’ when for one night the dead come back to complete unfinished business — be that to celebrate a night back on earth or to torment the living.”
Williamson and Plec are no strangers to TV, let alone the genre. Aside from creating Vampire Diaries and its spinoff The Originals, Williamson is responsible for the likes of the Scream franchise and Dawson’s Creek. Fans of the duo should be definitely looking out for this show as it’s very much in their wheelhouse.
