The team behind Sherlock is at it again! This time British showrunning superstars Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are bringing Bram Stoker’s Dracula back from the proverbial dead. The new British series stars the very tall and very brooding Danish actor Claes Bang as the bloodsucking immortal, and puts a sexy spin on the vampire’s thirst for blood.
Much like the blockbuster series Sherlock, each season of Dracula is made up of three 90-minute-long episodes, and it debuted on the BBC first. However, unlike Sherlock, which Americans had to wait almost a year to arrive stateside, Dracula will be premiering on Netflix mere hours after the first series concludes on the BBC.
Here’s everything you need to know about how to watch BBC’s Dracula on Netflix in the United States.
WHERE TO WATCH TO THE NEW DRACULA SHOW? WHERE CAN I WATCH THE BBC DRACULA?
The BBC’s new version of Dracula is going to be available in the United States as an exclusive Netflix Original. That means you can watch the new Dracula on Netflix.
It will not be available on Hulu or Prime Video, and it is not expected to hit PBS, either. So fire up that Netflix account if you want a taste of Dracula‘s bloody action!
WHEN DOES DRACULA AIR ON NETFLIX? WHAT IS THE BBC’S DRACULA‘S NETFLIX RELEASE DATE?
Fear not, my anxious children of the night, the arrival of your dark vampiric lord, Dracula, is nigh! The BBC’s Dracula is set to premiere on Netflix on Saturday, January 4, 2020.
Also, unlike the UK, which had a three-day rollout for each 90-minute episode, all three episodes of Dracula Season 1 will hit Netflix on Saturday, January 4, 2020. So you can binge to your black heart’s content!
WHAT TIME WILL DRACULA BE ON NETFLIX?
Much like its leading man, the BBC’s Dracula is set to come to “life” on Netflix in the wee, small hours of the morning. Like all Netflix shows, Dracula will be live on the streaming site at 12 AM PT, or 3 AM ET. You know, the perfect time to crawl out of a coffin and seduce some feckless British virgin who’s stumbled onto your castle’s front door. (I’m talking about Jonathan Harker, of course.)
