The Vampire Academy series is based on the eponymous series of popular novels by Rachel Mead. She published the first of them in 2007. The story follows two friends Rose (Cece Stringer) and Lisa (Daniela Neeves, who graduate from an elite educational institution to join the Royal Society of Vampires. From the first teaser of the project, it becomes clear that their path to the heights of mastery will not be strewn with roses.
The script of the series was written by Julie Plec and Marguerite McIntyre, experienced in the subject of night hunters. The first managed to work on "The Vampire Diaries", and the second on "The Ancients". They themselves describe their new project this way: "In fact, this is a story about the beginning of the revolution," explained Plec. "In the midst of all these lavish balls and royal intrigues, we will tell a story like The Hunger Games, which was a surprise for us when we started doing it. It includes everything at once: both the Bridgertons and The Hunger Games.
The premiere of the series will take place on September 15th.
