The legendary horror figure Dracula is getting a refresh come 2020 in the form of a new series from Netflix. Developed by the creators (Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat) of the widely-popular Sherlock show that starred Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, Dracula will be loosely inspired by Bram Stoker’s novel of the same name. The premise will be both “faithful” and “faith-less” to Stoker’s story according to Gatiss and Moffat. Taking the lead role will be 52-year-old Danish actor Claes Bang who is best known for his performance in the 2017 film The Square.

The plot will be an origin tale as it will also include the telling of Dracula’s battles with Van Helsing’s descendant. Netflix describes the show as how, “The Count Dracula legend transforms with new tales that flesh out the vampire’s gory crimes — and bring his vulnerability into the light.” Dracula will premiere on January 1, 2020, with the next episodes to come out on the second and third of the same month. The title will also air on BBC One.

In other entertainment news, a Power Rangers reboot is reportedly in the works.
