First Kill, the Netflix series is really scary

May 6, 202243 min

The series V Wars (2019) was a failure and it was cancelled after one season, despite everything, Netflix still believes in this market and wants to attract subscribers with programs where vampires are put forward.

Recently, the platform proposed the French series Vampires (2020), then the thriller Night Teeth (2021). Productions that have not caused a huge craze, but who cares. Vampires will still be present in 2022 with the series First Kill.

This series is based on a novel by Victoria Schwab. We will follow a young vampire named Juliette. While she has to kill for the first time to take her place in her family of vampires, she sets her heart on Calliope, a new girl who has just arrived in town. The first complication for Juliette is that Calliope is actually a vampire hunter. The second is that she will fall in love with her…

We can easily imagine a mix between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Twilight. The whole with a bit of Romeo and Juliet since the two families will be enemies. While waiting for a trailer which should be released soon, we can already discover (via EW) the first images (below) to get an idea:

The casting is strong and, we will find Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis in the main roles. Two actresses little known, but who could gain popularity thanks to First Kill. Alongside them will be Elizabeth Mitchell, Gracie Dzienny, Jason R. Moore, Will Swenson, Dylan McNamara and Dominic Goodman. The first season will consist of eight episodes. We suspect that if successful Netflix could order more for other seasons. But we’ll have to wait until June 10, when the show airs on the platform, to see if subscribers are hooked.
