You like vampires? Sure, they may have fallen out of fashion in the past handful or so years, but with sparkles and standard romances now taking a step to the side, it gives rumor for a more classic take on the legendary monsters. According to a new report from THR, Hulu is planning to put a new series in development based on the bestselling 11-book Vampire Chronicles series.

Last year, Anonymous and Paramount TV optioned the Anne Rice-written novel series, and this is a big first step in getting this show actually made. It’s worth noting that this does not guarantee a series. As with most things in Hollywood, nothing is a sure thing, and this is no exception. There has been many a series that have been developed in one place, only to slowly die a tragic death. But, as stated above, this is a good first step.

Anne Rice’s novels are no stranger to adaptations. Back in 1994, her 1976 novel Interview With the Vampire hit the big screen, with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and a young Kirsten Dunst leading a cast that also included Antonio Banderas and Thandie Newton.

Long-time fans of the book series should be happy to hear this news, and while I can’t say I’m a fan of the books (I haven’t gotten around to reading them), I did enjoy the 1994 film.
