Sherlock” team is not done yet to make another mind disturbing series. According to Variety, the hit detective BBC series’ writers and producers will once again reunite for Bram Stoker vampire classic. Sherlock’s very own Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are set to pen the series while Sue Vertue’s Hartswood Films serve as the producer.

Meanwhile, talks about the said show are yet to begin due to Gatiss and Moffat’s current individual projects. The only thing for sure now is the underway partnership with BBC network, which is not surprising at all after the successful end of “Sherlock” in January.

New BBC series ‘Dracula’ to have the same format as ‘Sherlock.'

As revealed by the earlier source, the new adaptation of “Dracula” will have the same format as the benedict cumberbatch-led series. The miniseries run is set to have the usual feature-length episodes. While people are obviously curious if Cumberbatch will join, the scripts are not on the table yet, so, to assume his participation would be way off for now.

There are other international partners expected to join the new project, like BBC Worldwide. The network’s commercial arm has been selling “Sherlock” globally and remained as one of the biggest titles in the past years.

Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat's stellar tandem

Since “Sherlock” ended, “Dracula” will be the first ever project of Moffat and Gatiss.

According to both veteran scribes, they have no plans of working on the new season of Arthur Conan Doyle’s book based series. However, they have not ruled out the possibilities in the future.

Meanwhile, Gatiss is known for his role in “Sherlock” as Mycroft, the eldest among the Holmes. Aside from it, he also played a role in HBO series entitled “Game of Thrones.” The 50-year-old has previously talked about his interests in classic horror films including 1958’s “Dracula,” which stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

On the other hand, Moffat has previously worked on BBC’s “Doctor Who.” He was able to write and executive produce for over six seasons before his exit.

As of now, no details were confirmed if “Dracula” will have the same modern day British day setting like “Sherlock.” After all, Stoker’s 1897 novel has the titular role moving from Transylvania to England in his search for new blood.

Furthermore, this is not the first time the said Gothic series has been adapted. “Downton Abbey” producers have also worked on it for NBC network in 2013, which only ran for one season.
