Fantasy lovers who miss the drama and bloodsucking fun of shows like True Blood and The Vampire Diaries have reason to celebrate, because a new vampire-centered TV show is set to hit Netflix next month, and just in time for Pride month, the series will feature a queer romance at its front.
What happens when you're a teen vampire, but you fall in love with a vampire hunter? That's the conflict that drives First Kill, the newest original series from Netflix, which will premiere on June 10 with eight brand-new episodes.
Based on V. E. Schwab's story of the same name from the short story collection Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite, the show follows Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook), a shy high schooler (and a vampire) who meets and quickly falls for new student Calliope (Imani Lewis), who unfortunately comes from a line of monster hunters. As Calliope feels the pressure from her family to hunt and Juliette fends off her urges to feed, the couple will determine whether their love is strong enough to overcome these obstacles.
