Cult Series ‘Dark Shadows’ May Be Getting A Reboot On The CW

A big fan of the original show, which he watched as a child when he came home from school, the showrunner has been after the adaptation rights for Dark Shadows for the last two years. This latest version will 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 new team intends to get back to the roots of the original series, …
