Often when news breaks about a beloved but niche fantasy show being cancelled, Netflix is to blame. Weirdly that’s not the case this time, as a different streaming giant is breaking hearts by cancelling the nascent show Vampire Academy.
People are understandably very upset.
Also this miffed fan:
For the uninitiated, Vampire Academy was about two young women from different social classes who need to finish vampire school to enter vampire high society. It’s basically a mashup of a Jane Eyre novel and Twilight – based on novels by Richelle Mead. The short-lived show comes courtesy of showrunners Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre.
Even the shows actors are bummed. Here’s the actress who plays Silver in the show weighing in on the news.
