Vampire Academy‘s cancellation has actually been resolved by among the executives in charge. The series, which is a brand-new adjustment of the unique series of the exact same name by Richelle Mead, was developed by The Vampire Diaries co-creator Julie Plec and star Marguerite MacIn tire. The series, which premiered on Peacock in September 2022, ran for 10 episodes and was consequently cancelled in January.
Recently, THR took a seat with NBCUniversal’s television and streaming chairman of home entertainment materialSusan Rovner During the discussion, she described the factor for the cancellation of numerous series, consisting of Vampire Academy, Plec and Kevin Williamson’s in-development series Dead Day, and the thriller One Of Us isLying She stated that a person of Peacock’s huge lessons was to attract adult audiences initially which it was “too soon to put those shows up on the platform,” though there might be area for a teen program like Vampire Academy someplace down the roadway in a couple of years. Read her complete quote below:
I have a history with Julie and Kevin from my Warner days. Both One of Us Is Lying and Vampire Academy, the takeaway was that it was prematurely to put those programs up on the platform. What we understood is we need to get the moms and dads prior to we get the teenagers. And I’m hoping that once we get the moms and dads with programs like Poker Face and reveals like Traitors, that we will have the ability to do a program like Vampire Academy a couple of years from now. The timing wasn’t right. We didn’t have the ability yet to support generating a young person audience.
Does Vampire Academy Have a Future Elsewhere?
Plec has actually had a difficultseason In addition to Vampire Academy and Dead Day being canceled at Peacock, her CW series Legacies ( the 2nd spinoff of The Vampire Diaries following The Originals) was axed along with numerous scripted CW series in 2015. However, she just recently ensured fans that she was “knocking on doors” and looking for a brand-new house for Vampire Academy.
To answer your question, yes we will absolutely be knocking on doors to find a new home for it. I just can’t fathom a show people like with so much story left to tell not having a chance to do so.

However, discovering a brand-new network for the YA series may be a difficulty. Streaming services are typically the platforms that save canceled network programs (like Netflix’s renewals of You and Manifest), so canceled streaming series do not always have a clear path to resurrection. However, this has actually taken place in the past, consisting of Netflix’s One Day at a Time reboot being gotten by Pop TELEVISION, so there is constantly an opportunity.
Unfortunately, Vampire Academy has actually discovered itself without a platform at an extremely hard time for streaming. Services like HBO Max and Paramount+ have actually been cleaning up home and most likely aren’t aiming to induce any brand-new originals that were currently ditched when. The more than likely house would be Netflix, which has a strong teenager base thanks to titles like the To All the Boys trilogy, however the series would need to show itself worth its budget plan, which may just occur with an online fan project to show the audience is undoubtedly there need to they select it up.
