Vampire Academy Season 1

So we are watching Vampire Academy season 1. The Vampire Academy series on Peacock was canceled. After just a single season, this series was canceled. Now this is not an unusual action for streaming services. They love to create shows that people love, that are genuinely good and cancel them after a single season. Normally this is done in order to avoid paying writers bonuses but there seems to be a particular cancellation bias toward female led shows. 

So when I found out that Vampire Academy joined the long list of streaming show casualties I had to find out why. Now this show was on my to watch list anyway but I knew that if it was anywhere as bad as the movie then they were right to cancel it. However it turns out that Peacock done fucked up. The Vampire Academy show was actually awesome and an amazing adaptation of the book and we deserved more.

So overall Vampire Academy season 1 actually ventures pretty far from the events of the source material, at least if you go book by book but it doesn’t feel like it. The film version is extremely faithful to the book, events wise. But the tone and execution couldn’t have been more wrong. So the film was terrible. The show kind of goes its own way as far as the events of the story go, but it very much feels like the source material. The plot is still true to the characters and it feels like it could fit right in with the series. It actually feels like the first season brings in lots of elements of all of the books allowing for a more complete story.
