Dracula star Claes Bang mulls season 2 possibilities

Posted Filed under

There’s still no official news from the BBC on whether Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss’ series will return for more episodes…

Steven Moffat and Mark Gattis’ new spin on Dracula arrived with a “Bang” as the new year began …Claes Bang, that is, who took great delight in playing the character for the BBC, but is Dracula ever really dead and buried? Bang hopes not, and in a new interview with Collider he’s been chatting about the possibility of his Dracula rising from the grave for a potential second series.

“That’s absolutely something that I think is being discussed, but I don’t think there’s any news, at all,” he said. “I haven’t heard anything. I would be super happy to do one more [season]. I’d love to go back with all of those people, and do more. It was were really fulfilling and lovely, and really, really cool to do.”

He continued, “I have actually tried to find out if something was happening, but I don’t think they have started the discussions yet. I think what’s going on is that Netflix and the BBC are evaluating how it’s done, and all of that. So, unfortunately, I can’t tell you anything because I don’t know, at this point. I would actually love to know, and I would love to do one more, but there’s no news in that department yet.

“I suppose we discussed if we would like to do it, but it’s not been discussed like that, no. We have had a bit of fun with, now that he can actually stand in the sun, the opening shot of the second series would be Dracula, on a beach in Mexico, with one of those tin foil things that you hold up to your face, to get the sun all over you.”

We’ll bring you any further developments as they’re announced.
