Hot on the heels of the success of Heartstopper, Netflix is getting ready to unleash its next tale of queer adolescent romance with a supernatural twist in First Kill.
When it’s time for teenage vampire Juliette (Sarah Catherine Hook) 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 (Imani Lewis). 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.
Felicia D. Henderson (THE PUNISHER, EMPIRE, GOSSIP GIRL, SOUL FOOD) serves as showrunner, executive producer, and writer of FIRST KILL, which is based on the short story by New York Times best-selling author Victoria “V. E.” Schwab, who is also a writer and executive producer for the series. Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss serve as executive producers through Belletrist Productions. FIRST KILL also stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Aubin Wise, Gracie Dzienny, Dominic Goodman, Phillip Mullings, Jr., and Jason R. Moore.
The show is set to premiere on June 10th. Get the latest updates on the show HERE.
