Let the Right One In Teaser: Mark is on a Mission to Keep Eleanor Alive

The teaser has so far been received well by the audience, with one viewer writing, “HUGE fan of the Swedish OG and the American remake is good too. This looks great as well. I’ll watch anything with Demian Bichir. I can’t wait.” and another commenting, “God I waited for this for so long.”

The Series is a Little Different from the Previous Adaptations

The story of the series is going to deviate from the 2004 source novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and the two previous film adaptations. The book and films revolved around an ancient vampire with the body of a young girl seeking companionship and forming friendship with a young boy. 

While the series will focus on a girl who turned into a vampire only 10 years ago and will explore her relationship with her father. The official synopsis of the show reads, “Locked in at age 12, perhaps forever, Eleanor lives a closed-in life, able to go out only at night, while her father does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.”

Let the Right One In Cast

The series will star Oscar nominee Demián Bichir as Mark and Madison Taylor Baez, known for Selena: The Series, as Eleanor. Other cast members will include Tony Award winner Anika Noni Rose, Mr. Robot actress Grace Gummer, Snowfall fame Kevin Carroll, Merry Wish-Mas star Ian Foreman and Colony actor Jacob Buster.

Award-winning playwright, writer, and producer Andrew Hinderaker has written the pilot episode and will serve as the showrunner and the executive producer. Seith Mann, known for his work in Homeland, has directed some of the episodes, including the pilot.
