The Twilight franchise forever changed the face of vampires in pop culture. Years after the release of Breaking Dawn Part 2, the saga of Edward and Bella continues to be successful worldwide. Netflix takes advantage of this popularity to release First Death, its “original Twilight”. Recently, the platform released the first images of the series.
First Death – First Kill, in the original title – is the creation of Felicia D. Henderson (Empire), based on the eponymous short story written by Victoria Schwab.
Emma Roberts, famous for playing several different characters in the horror series American Horror Story, is the executive producer.
See below the first photos of Primeira Morte, released by Netflix. Also check out some details about the plot and cast of the upcoming series.
Family-themed, First Death is Netflix’s Twilight
The photos released by Netflix prove the teen content of Primeira Morte. The series’ aesthetic is already compared to Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, another success of the platform.
Fans can look forward to plenty of drama, plot twists, action sequences, romance and, of course, sharp teeth.
The teen series First Death follows the story of a young vampire who chooses an unusual prey for her first murder.
“Falling in love is risky for teenagers Juliette and Calliope: one is a vampire, the other is a vampire hunter – and both are ready for the First Death,” states the series’ official synopsis.
In the plot, the young vampire Juliette prepares to claim her first victim and secure a prominent position in her powerful clan.
Calliope, the new girl in town, catches Juliette’s eye. But to the protagonist’s surprise, the young woman turns out to be a vampire hunter, member of a famous family of supernatural investigators.
As the description indicates, the two characters end up falling in love – which causes moments of great emotion and unpredictable twists.
The cast of First Death is led by Sarah Catherine Hook and Imani Lewis as Juliette and Calliope, respectively.
Sarah Catherine Hook is famous for her performance as Debbie Glatzel in the horror film The Conjuring 3: The Devil’s Order.
Imani Lewis, meanwhile, is known for playing Aniyah in the acclaimed Eighth Grade dramedy.
Also joining the cast of First Death are Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), Aubin Wise (Atlanta), Gracie Dzienny (Bumblebee), Dominic Goodman (He’s Awesome), Phillip Mullings Jr. (Chad) and Jason R. Moore (The Punisher).
First Death premieres on Netflix on June 10, 2022. See below for the first images of the series.
