“It’s a story about two young women who have been friends since the sandbox,” Julie shared during an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “As they grow up and get closer to entering real society, what society dictates about what their roles are supposed to be threatens to put a wedge in the success of their friendship.”

Sisi Stringer will play Rose Hathaway, a vampire-human hybrid knows as a Dhampir, and Daniela Nieves is Lissa Dragomir, a Royal Moroi vampire.

Julie added of the series feel, “We talk in the writers’ room about how we really want to make sure that episodically we hit the friendship and the romance and the palace fun, but we also really want to have our kind of Game of Thrones palace intrigue. I thought, ‘This is modern-day Bridgerton with vampires.’ Who’s not going to want to see that?”

Alongside Sisi and Daniela, the series will also star Kieron Moore, André Dae Kim, J. August Richards, Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, Jonetta Kaiser, and Andrew Liner.

Here’s who they’ll play:

- Andrew Liner will play the charming, loyal and popular Mason Ashford, Rose’s main competition in the quest to become the number one Guardian-in-training. Though their relationship is casual on her side, he is hopeful she will finally look at him and see him as something more.

- J. August Richards will play Victor Dashkov, a Moroi noble vampire with a heart of gold who’s highly regarded for his role as advisor and political strategist to Moroi dignitaries. He’s a fierce loyalist who uses his intelligence and influence to protect that which he values most: the well-being of his husband and two adopted daughters, as well as the betterment of his Moroi community.

- Kieron Moore will play Dimitri Belikov, the model of a Dhampir guardian: lethal, disciplined, discreet, and totally committed to his role as bodyguard to the ruling Moroi, the “good,” mortal vampires of his world.

- Andre Dae Kim will play Christian Ozera, a Royal Moroi vampire who is also the pariah of the school and royal court, due to his parents’ unforgivable societal sins.
- Anita-Joy Uwajeh will play Tatiana Vogel, a Moroi vampire and political underdog who slowly takes the royal court by storm.

- Mia McKenna-Bruce will play Mia Karp, a witty, cutting and non-Royal student who has a long-term plan to social climb her way into the ranks of royalty – -though it is complicated by her instant chemistry with Meredith, a Guardian-in-training.

- Rhian Blundell will play Meredith, a smart, strong-willed Dhampir who has little patience for Rose’s volatility or Mia’s elitism.

- Jonetta Kaiser will play the quiet, careful and decidedly odd Sonya Karp, who sits out on the fringe of Moroi society and s taken by surprise when a Dhampir Guardian named Mikhail shows interest in her.
