NBC’s decided against a second season of the dramatic series Dracula starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Could this mean vampire shows and movies have in fact run their course? Or was the Friday timeslot to blame? Whatever the reason, Dracula won’t be getting a second season.

Dracula‘s final episodes drew higher viewer numbers than the series had been pulling in, but the 3.1 million who tuned in for the finale weren’t enough to make the network decide to give the show another season.

NBC previously revealed that Believe and Crisis also won’t be back for second seasons.

The Plot of Dracula:

Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century and the mysterious Dracula (Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.
