The hot men of The Vampire Diaries and True Blood better watch out, because there's a hot new vampire coming to TV on Friday, Oct. 25!
Jonathan Rhys Meyers is set to sink his teeth into the role of the iconic and titular Victorian monster in NBC's new drama Dracula, but this isn't your grandfather's (or Bram Stoker's) classic vamp. He's sexy. He's seductive. He's out for revenge.
We've got your exclusive first look at Dracula's new promo, which shows off just how irresistible Meyer's Dracula is to the ladies...
Surrounded by thousands of ladies in red, Dracula is like a kid in a candy store...until he bares his teeth and becomes a vampire at an all-you-can-eat buffet. Same thing.
The series, which received a 10-episode order, finds the bloodsucker posing as an American businessman relocating to London in 1890 to wreak havoc on the society that ruined his life centuries ago. Of course, his plans for revenge change when he falls for a woman, Mina (Arrow's Jessica De Gouw), who looks exactly like his dead wife. And yes, genre geeks, you can expect to see Drac face off with Van Helsing!
Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Katie McGrath, Nonso Anozie, Victoria Smurfit and Thomas Kretschmann all star alongside Rhys Meyers in the series.
Dracula premieres Friday, Oct. 25, at 10 p.m. on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
