The creepy and intriguing world surrounding the Collins family of Collinsport, Maine is coming back to television screens!
The CW has put in production a sequel to the original American gothic soap “Dark Shadows” that ran from 1966 to 1971 on ABC. “Dark Shadows: Reincarnation” will be a modern-day continuation of the original story which centered around the Collins family and the strange and supernatural occurrences in their town.
The CW sequel’s pilot is being written by self-proclaimed superfan Mark B. Perry (Ghost Whisper, Revenge). Perry will also executive produce along with Amasia Entertainment's Michael Helfant, Bradley Gallo and Tracy Mercer, as well as Tracy and Cathy Curtis, the daughters of series creator Dan Curtis.
The soap had a large cult following that still exists to this day. Over the years several revivals have been made. NBC aired a short-lived season in 1991, and award-winning director Tim Burton directed the film version in 2012 that starred Johnny Depp as the popular Barnabas Collins.
