·2 min read

If you’ve been craving a vampire drama to quench your thirst since “The Vampire Diaries” left Netflix, look no further.

Created by TVD producer Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre, who wrote “The Vampire Diaries” spinoffs “The Originals” and “Legacies,” “Vampire Academy” promises all the romance of TVD with even more hierarchy and teen angst. Think “Harry Potter” combined with “The Crown” but with a blood-sucking twist.

Here’s how to watch the YA adaptation when it premieres Thursday, Sept. 15.
