If you love a supernatural drama, Peacock is ready to bring you your new obsession. The streamer announced today it will adapt Dead Day into a TV series.

The AfterShock Comics series by Ryan Parrott follows an ensemble of characters as they navigate the annual “dead day,” when for one night the dead come back to complete unfinished business… be that to celebrate a night back on earth or to torment the living.

Bringing Parrott’s comic to screen will be a pair of big names in the supernatural TV space. Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson will serve as showrunners on Dead Day. The pair previously helmed popular series The Vampire Diaries. Plec and Williamson will write for and executive produce the series.

“We have been looking for a project to do together and Dead Day has all the ingredients we love as storytellers: love, death, thrills, and tears. And we know Susan Rovner and her team at Peacock is the perfect fit for this project,” said Plec and Williamson in a statement. 

Original comic author Parrott will serve as a consulting producer on the series.

“We realized because of Dead Day’s unique, universally appealing concept that this AfterShock Comic would capture the audience’s imagination worldwide. And none of this would be possible without this recognition from our amazing partners: Julie Plec, Kevin Williamson, Universal Television, Peacock and Ryan Parrott, the creator of Dead Day,” said AfterShock Media’s Lee and Jon Kramer.

Williamson recently executive produced the fifth Scream movie. Plec is currently working on another supernatural series for Peacock, an adaptation of the YA series Vampire Academy.

AfterShock Comics recently announced Dead Day would continue in a second volume.
