Viewers Are Already Calling For Second Series Of Netflix's New Vampire Drama Series
| Last updated
It's only been a hot minute since season one of the new vampire series First Kill dropped on Netflix, and already fans are calling for a second season. You can check out the trailer below:
The show, which has been described as a combination of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Romeo and Juliet, centres on a vampire and a slayer falling in love - and unsurprisingly it doesn't take long for things to get real messy.
Per the official synopsis: "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."
All eight episodes of season one hit Netflix on Friday 10 June, and it's since earned a 90% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Now fans have binge-watched the whole thing they're calling on the streamer for a second outing.
"If you're a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or The Vampire Diaries, you would enjoy the series First Kill on Netflix," wrote one on Twitter.
"I would enjoy seeing a second season if it is renewed, the cast is great and it's an engaging storyline."
A second said: "Keep watching the series, hashtags, mention Netflix. Let’s make sure they know we want our #FirstKill second season announcement."
As well as a great cast and gripping storyline, many people appreciate a lesbian couple being front and centre of a vampire show.
"We need to have a second season of First Kill, we have to show Netflix that it's worth investing in LGBTQIA+ series," said one viewer.
Another wrote: "Having two lesbian ladies at the core of a Netflix show is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. In conclusion, an experience like First Kill may not come along again, therefore WE NEED RENEWAL."
The viewers aren't the only ones to praise the show's representation - in fact, Imani Lewis, who portrays the vampire slayer half of the on-screen couple, said it's one of the first things that attracted her to the project.
When asked about this in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, she said: "I think how much representation is in the project. I think it's incredibly important...
"I think those distinctive groups of people, whether that be the LGBTQ community, the Black community, interracial couples, the adolescent community.

"It represents so many groups of people, the representation in itself I think is something very different and necessary."
The 23-year-old star continued: "But outside of that, the story itself! Everything about it was just so different to me, but so cool and modern.
"I just love playing independent strong female characters that are diligent and know who they want to be in the world."
