The vampire series is based on the short story by Victoria “V. E.” Schwab, and is going to be an eight-episode, one-hour series. The Punisher‘s Felicia D. Henderson is writing and serving as showrunner.
The short story was published in Imprint’s Vampires Never Get Old: Tales with Fresh Bite by Natalie C. Parker and Zoraida Córdova, a collection of short stories about vampires.
Here’s a plot summary: “In First Kill, when it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette to make her first kill so she can take her place among a powerful vampire family, she sets her sights on a new girl in town named Calliope. But much to Juliette’s surprise, Calliope is a vampire hunter, from a family of celebrated slayers. Both find that the other won’t be so easy to kill and, unfortunately, way too easy to fall for.”
Emma and boyfriend Garrett Hedlund celebrated the upcoming arrival of their baby boy with a socially distanced baby shower! Guests in attendance included Kristen Stewart, Camila Morrone, among other famous friends.
If you missed it, one of Emma‘s close friends and former co-stars just welcomed her first child.
