The CW Working On DARK SHADOWS Reboot


The CW is said to be working on an adaption of supernatural drama Dark Shadows that first ran in the late 60s.

The original “Dark Shadows” aired on ABC from 1966 to 1971 for over 1,200 episodes. The series featured a wide variety of supernatural storylines and creatures but is perhaps best remembered for the vampire character Barnabas Collins, who was played by Jonathan Frid. 

The new version titled Dark Shadows: Reincarnation is centred around  the strange, terrifying, and sexy saga of the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine — a mysterious, influential, publicity-shy group hiding a ghastly secret: For the past 400 years, they’ve lived under a curse that bedevils their blueblood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.
