The famed Collins family are being brought back to life over at The CW!
Courtesy of Deadline, The CW and Warner Bros. Television are developing a new Dark Shadows series titled Dark Shadows: Reincarnation. Revenge’s Mark B. Perry has been tapped to pen an hour-long pilot offering of this reimagined new take on an old favourite.
The current blurb for Dark Shadows: Reincarnation reads:
The reimagined show will be a modern-day continuation of the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collings 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 blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.
It seems that the current plan is to very much develop the show with the original Dark Shadows series – which ran from 1966 to 1971 – in mind, drawing in fans of that genre fave while also appealing to a new audience. In addition to that classic show, Tim Burton also served up a Dark Shadows Johnny Depp-headlined movie back in 2012.
As ever, expect more on Dark Shadows: Reincarnation as we get it.
