Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat s Dracula is a drama-horror show based on Bram Stoker s eponymous book from 1897.
An emotionally distant lawyer named Jonathan Harker (John Heffernan) is sent to Count Dracula s (Claes Bang) castle in Transylvania to help with the acquisition of some land.
The events that unfold after his arrival alter the trajectory of his life. While the show s genesis can be traced back to the book s basic framework, it gradually departs from the novel in the story s unfolding intricacies.
The program leaves a spooky impression, so perhaps there will be more seasons. The following are the details.
Dracula Season 2 Renewal Status
Mark Gatiss (who, as of right now, has no confirmation on Dracula for Season 2 and hence no release date) told Radio Times last year, We will update you as soon as we get anything new on it.
Frank Renfield (who plays Renfield) let me know that Season 2 of Dracula was in the works.
He has previously said that murdering a vampire is a difficult process. He then said, Do you get what I m getting at? They are experts at resurrecting people.
When questioned about Dracula Season 2, creator Steven Moffat said, That would be to give away how it ends, would t it? His next words were, So you’ll have to wait and see.
After then, speculation about the show s potential end began circulating online.
Claes Bang, who portrayed Count Dracula in the first season, said that production on Dracula Season 2 has not been made at the moment.
I would love to say something about that, Claes Bang told Digital Spy, but I can t because I think, no, it s with Netflix and the BBC. There has t been a choice to skip it if you ask me. However, a choice to undertake one has not been taken as of yet.
My one good comment is that I would welcome the opportunity to perform another.
I really miss talking to them again. According to Claes Bang, it was one of the best things I have ever been on.
Since Dracula is a timeless adversary, there is no restriction on the time period or location in which a horror story starring the vampire might take place.
Since Dracula has been at least since the 15th century, it is plausible that a prequel may depict his exploits even farther back in time, such as when he was still known as Vlad the Impaler.
In contrast, Dracula 3: The Dark Compass made a dramatic time leap by bringing the vampire to modern-day London.
What s more, the Count might have been miraculously resurrected undead to continue his terrible ways against anyone, anywhere, despite how Dracula ended.

Dracula Season 2 Plot
The plot for Dracula s first season ended on a high note. Dracula and Zoe s deaths together in acceptance of death provided a satisfying resolution for the audience.
The character of Zoe succumbs to cancer, and Dracula is killed when he consumes her malignant blood to conquer his fear. The fantastical character of the story suggests that they may still be alive.
The writers of the program have a reputation for originality. They will find a way to rewrite the book even though they have already utilized all the good bits.
It s possible that Dracula may be shown to have survived the poison in the second season, which will focus on his personal development and ultimate redemptive arc.
With the potential for new information to emerge about his background, his past may potentially rise to the surface.
