Another Vampire Show Coming to TV

TNT is set to produce an adaptation of the best-selling novel, Let the Right One In.

If you thought the vampire craze was over, you were wrong! It's recently been revealed that TNT has ordered a pilot episode for the adaptation of Let the Right One In, a best-selling novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist. And, interestingly enough, this isn't the first time the material has gone from book to screen …or even the second time!

Published back in 2004, the vampire fiction novel was inspiration for the 2008 Swedish-language film, Let the Right One In, directed by Tomas Alfredson. Then, in 2010, an English-language version was produced, starring Chloë Grace Moretz. Let Me In received critical acclaim, specifically for Moretz's portrayal of a vampire child, but failed to earn a large profit.

And now the novel will have new life at TNT!

A deal has officially been finalized, in which Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds, Teen Wolf) will executive produce. Davis also penned the script, which falls in line with the first film adaptation.

With elements of horror, revenge, and romance, Let the Right One In should join the ranks of other hit vampire series, such as True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. However, LTROI will soon be the only show of its kind to choose from, as True Blood ended in 2014, and Diaries will conclude after its 2016-2017 season.

No word yet on who will star in the new series, or when we can expect a debut, but it has been noted that this is a further attempt by TNT to revamp its programming. This is just one of three new pilots in the works for the network, with an additional four new shows set to premiere in the upcoming months and throughout the rest of 2017. Next on the schedule is Good Behavior, a thriller-drama starring Michelle Dockery from Downton Abbey fame.

Are you looking forward to a new vampire show hitting the air? Or do you think it's high time for Hollywood to get more creative?
