Despite our best efforts, we just never warmed up to NBC’s adaptation of “Dracula” starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and apparently neither did the network’s decision-makers because it was announced earlier today that it will not be returning for a second season.
Along with Meyers, the show’s other cast members, all of whom fared a bit better in their roles, included Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Jonathan Harker, Jessica De Gouw as Mina Murray/Ilona, Thomas Kretschmann as Abraham Van Helsing, Katie McGrath as Lucy Westenra, Nonso Anozie as R.M. Renfield, Victoria Smurfit as Lady Jayne Wetherby, Ben Miles as Mr. Browning, and Robert Bathurst as Lord Thomas Davenport.
With the announcement that “Constantine” received a series order just a few days ago, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it fill Drac’s coffin… er… time slot. Stay tuned for an announcement of NBC’s full schedule soon.
