The CW resurrecting Dark Shadows

September 15th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like we’re getting another new take on the Dark shadows series  courtesy of The CW.

The series, which aired from 1966 to 1971 told the story of the Collins family living in their Collinswood, Maine estate who is led by Barnabas Collins – a vampire – into weekly adventures with the weird and paranormal.

The series has two movies, a brief 90s reboot and a 2012 movie starring Johnny Depp as Barnabus.

But now, adding to the ever-expanding mythology, we have Dark Shadows: Reincarnation, “a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blueblood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.”

When will we see the new series? At a guess I’d say next year.

Are you excited for this? Let me know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
