Zombies and ghouls to the left, sexy vampires are back and the world can thank the BBC. This year, it comes from Sherlock masterminds (come on, you know you love it) Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, who have made a decision to crack open the dusty ol' coffin and let our palest king rise once again, with Claes Bang (The Square) as the titular Dracula you know and love.

Moffatt and Gatiss are known for their hit Benedict Cumberbatch-led series Sherlock.

The BBC has released the first trailer for its new adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Hartswood Films are producing, with co-creators Moffat and Gatiss penning the scripts. Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square, The Girl in the Spider's Web) assumes the role of Count Dracula, telling the tale of his origins in Eastern Europe, his move to England in search of fresh prey, and his battles with the legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing.

Ferrari also made some changes to the side profile where the front section of the door is now more tapered to optimise airflow. Ferrari 488 GT3 Evo is the third generation of the race vehicle and follows the initial release in the year 2016.

What we do know is that, much like Sherlock, the show will consist of three feature-length episodes, so it will definitely be something that we can sink our teeth into. Other stars of the miniseries include John Heffernan, Joanna Scanlan, Sacha Dhawan, Dolly Wells, Jonathan Aris, and Nathan Steward-Jarrett.

Dracula is expected to premiere on the BBC this winter and on Netflix outside the UK.

Wenger and Director of BBC Content Charlotte Moore Dracula commissioned the series, which is written and created by Moffat and Gatiss.
