A new “Dracula” series may make it to television in the coming months!

According to Variety, “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock” creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are teaming up with Sue Vertue’s Hartswood Films to produce the new TV show. At present, talks are already underway between the creators, the production company and the BBC to air the series in the United Kingdom. As of late, it is still unclear whether or not “Dracula” will also be released in the United States.

TV Line reported that “Dracula” is a vampire story based on novel by Bram Stoker. It revolves around a blood-sucking character from Transylvania who moves to England in search of new victims. The publication also revealed that Moffat and Gatiss’ “Dracula” are still in its very stages. This means that no script has been written yet for the show. The casting for the series will most likely be announced in the coming months if BBC will give it a green light. What is only known is that “Dracula” could follow a similar format with that of “Sherlock.” Each of the short seasons aired feature-length episodes.

Moffat executive-produced six seasons of “Doctor Who.” He worked with Gatiss to create the “Sherlock” revival starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. As of late, it is still unclear whether or not “Sherlock” will be renewed for season 5.

Earlier this year, Independent claimed that Moffat already hinted on the possibility of Season 4 being the last for “Sherlock.” However, the exec still remained optimistic for what is to come. “If this is the last time – and I’m not planning on it to be, but it might be – it is possible that we could end it. We couldn’t have ended it on any previous series because they always ended on walloping, great cliffhangers. I would be moderately surprised if this was the last time we every made this show. But it absolutely could be,” he said.

Cumberbatch, on the other hand, slammed the cancelation rumors during his interview with the Associated Press. “We love doing the show and all I’ll say about it is that we’re all very busy… But we’ll see, we’ll never say never and when it’s right, and if it’s right, we’ll do more,” he said.
