Vampires are here to stay on Netflix as yet another series is set to land on the platform full of the blood-sucking supernatural creatures’ lore. This time, however, instead of a prestige drama from the mind of Midnight Mass‘ Mike Flanagan, the streamer will be treating subscribers to a young adult fantasy titled, First Kill.

The series is a sapphic teen drama from YA author V.E. Schwab and scream queen Emma Roberts. Schwab will be as creator, writer, and executive producer. Roberts will be producing the series with her best friend, Karah Priess, under their media company Belletrist Productions which is quoted as having “an eye toward celebrating book lovers.”

Felicia D. Henderson (The Punisher) is slated to take the reins of the series as showrunner and will also be credited as a writer and executive producer on the project.

Here’s what more we know about the upcoming Netflix original!

First Kill release date

Netflix has officially confirmed that the series will launch on Friday, June 10, 2022, so we’re not too far away from the release date!

First Kill cast

Sarah Catherine Hook (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, NOS4A2, Impeachment: American Crime Story) as Juliette Fairmont, a shy teen vamp who refuses to turn herself into a monster. She has the support of her family but legacy and love don’t always mix.

Imani Lewis (Hightown, The Equalizer, Eighth Grade) as Calliope “Cal” Burns, a monster hunter who is fearless, determined, and more vulnerable than she’ll ever let on. Her sense of duty wars with the secret love she harbors in her heart.

The Fairmonts (vampires)

  • Elizabeth Mitchell as Margot
  • Will Swenson as Sebastian
  • Gracie Dzienny as Elinor
  • Dylan McNamara as Oliver

The Burns family (monster hunters)

  • Aubin Wise as Talia
  • Jason R. Moore as Jack
  • Dominic Goodman as Apollo
  • Phillip Mullings Jr. as Theo

Guest stars

  • MK xyz as Tess
  • Jonas Dylan Allen as Ben Wheeler

Is First Kill based on a book?

While the series isn’t based on a book, its source material is Schwab’s own short story of the same name published in the YA anthology, Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite. Her involvement in this live-action adaptation should be welcome news to fans as it’s not often that author’s get to have such control over an adaptation’s direction and development.

First Kill episode count

There will be a total of eight episodes in the first season and it looks like each one will be about 60 minutes in length, give or take.

First Kill synopsis

Here is the official synopsis, courtesy of Netflix:

When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope (Imani Lewis). But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.

We’ll keep you posted on more First Kill news as it comes in. Stay tuned to Gizmo Blaze!
