Honestly, this would have been pretty entertaining.
For those who didn't know, The Collins family was set to make a big return on The CW... Dark Shadows: Resurrections, a revival of the 1966 classic vampire show. Despite it being such an iconic brand and potential hit, the plug was pulled before it even began.
TV Line reports, “Dark Shadows: Resurrections never made it to the pilot stage and at this point is no longer in development at The CW.”
“The re-imagined show was set to be a modern-day continuation of 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 blue blood with every imaginable supernatural creature and horror.”
The hour-long gothic horror drama pilot episode was written by Mark B. Perry (Revenge)
Created by Dan Curtis, Dark Shadows aired between 1966 and 1971, starring Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins.
