September 23, 2021 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Showtime’s series adaptation of the modern vampire classic Let the Right One In is officially a go, getting a series order. Bloody Disgusting reports that Showtime has officially ordered a series adaptation of the 2004 horror novel by Swedish writer John Ajvide Lindqvist, which he adapted into the screenplay for the 2008 film — itself adapted into 2010 American film by Matt Reeves.

The site reports that the series will run 10 episodes and will star Demián Bichir, Anika Noni Rose, Grace Gummer, Madison Taylor Baez, Kevin Carroll, Ian Foreman and Jacob Buster. Andrew Hinderaker will serve as showrunner for the series, with Seith Mann directing. It is described as follows:

“The series version centers on Mark (Bichir) and his daughter Eleanor (Baez), whose lives were changed forever 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire. Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.”
