Brides of Dracula was the sequel to the infamous original Dracula film and first came to life on the silver-screen in 1960. The foxy ladies were brought back to life in 2004's Van Helsing and now they are going to rise once more for a new NBC series.

Deadline has revealed that Dracula's Brides may be brought back to life in a soapy-drama based in contemporary New York City.

In the classic tale, they are ultimately killed by Dr. Van Helsing. The gothic TV series would see them survive instead and try to keep their unusual family together in the modern era.

If you are not familiar with the story of three characters, their names are Marishka, Aleera, and Verona. These three powerful vampire 'sisters' found their home alongside Dracula in his infamous castle in Transylvania. The sisters of the night are famous for using their beauty to seduce and bewitch men before preying on them. The girls even manage to put Dracula under their spell, but he swiftly comes to his senses and kills them.

The show will be written by Glee's Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and produced by Arrow's Greg Berlanti. I have a feeling that this show has landed in good hands as Berlanti has executively produced heaps of really successful shows including Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. He's also producing the highly anticipated Pan movie and amazingly he has found time to start working on this show. The writer Aguirre-Sacasa is the chief creative officer for Archie Comics and wrote the screenplay for 2004's Carrie reboot.

Sadly, no further details have been dropped just yet. I cannot wait to see how this story will develop and how the leading ladies will fit into modern New York City.
