Why Was Peacock’s ‘Vampire Academy’ Cancelled?

In January 2023, Peacock announced that Vampire Academy would be cancelled after one season.

Prior to the news, executive producer Julie Plec confirmed at the 2022 New York Comic Con that they’ve definitely planned ahead for a second season. After the cancellation was announced, she took to Twitter and shared a pretty promising message to fans.

“Yes, we will absolutely be knocking on doors to find a new home for it,” Julie wrote. “I just can’t fathom a show people like with so much story left to tell not having a chance to do so.”

Sadly, after months of searching for a new home, Julie and co-showrunner Marguerite Maclntyre announced in May 2023, that they were unsuccessful.

“I have been wanting to say this for a very long time. Again, thank you for all your love for the show. Thanks for the incredible support. Thanks for you sticking with us through a lot of thin lately,” she began on a Twitter thread.

“I don’t have good news,” she continued. “I don’t see any avenue forward. I feel like now is the time to say I’m sorry about that, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. We went a little silent because there wasn’t a lot we could say. We pitched our hearts out, and we tried, and we took it as far as we could.”
