The TV adaptation of the Vampire Academy book series was released on Peacock on September 15, 2022 and the 1st season ended on October 27, 2022. Although little time has passed since the premiere of the season finale, people are already wondering if there will be Vampire Academy Season 2 and if so, when the next season will be released. That’s why we’re here to get you covered about everything you need to know about Vampire Academy Season 2. Without further ado, let’s dive in!
Vampire Academy Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, there’s no official announcement from Peacock about Vampire Academy Season 2 yet, but there’s no need to worry, because there are several signs that point to a continuation of the series. As it’s known, the series is based on the novel series of the same name by Richelle Mead. Fortunately, there are six novels in the book series, which means that there are still many stories to be told in the series.
Julie Plec, one of the executive producers of the series, confirmed at New York Comic Con 2022 that they’ve definitely planned ahead and know which characters have multi-season story arcs. Not only her, but also one of the stars of the series gave us the hint that Vampire Academy will be expanded. Vampire Academy star Jazzy De Lisser, who plays the role of Sasha Tanner in the series, told Express that she hopes for a 2nd season.
It’s impossible to say exactly when Vampire Academy Season 2 will be released. However, if we want to speculate, we can say that the possible next season of the series will probably appear after September 2023, when it’ll be renewed.

Is Vampire Academy Inappropriate?
The MPAA has rated Vampire Academy PG -13 for violence, gory images, sexual content and language. The series consists of mild sex and nudity scenes and moderate violence and blood scenes. So it’s not completely inappropriate, but parental guidance is recommended for viewers under the age of 13.
Was Vampire Academy a Flop?
Yes, the 2014 film version of Vampire Academy was a flop. Directed by Mark Waters, the director of the once popular teen movie Mean Girls, the story of the first book in the novel series was filmed. Unfortunately, the film adaptation of Vampire Academy, starring Sarah Hyland and Zoey Deutch, was a flop at the box office. The film was a commercial failure, grossing only $15.4 million worldwide on a $30 million budget, making it a box office failure. Due to the poor box office performance, the theatrical release in the United Kingdom was postponed, and the film was released as a direct-to-video by Entertainment One on July 14, 2014.
Many fans of the book series disliked the film for various reasons. It was suspected that the film condensed too much material into one part, which lessened the impact of the story. Also, fans felt that the movie was more like a quirky high school soap like Mean Girls and failed to show the serious material of the book. In addition to criticism of the story and acting, the film was also criticized for its cast. The actors’ acting made the film look like a parody of vampire movies. In addition, people also disliked the film’s cinematography despite its high budget.
However, the TV series adaptation of Vampire Academy is more promising than the big screen adaptation. It seems that the series is much more successful than the movie in many aspects such as acting, narration and cinematography. That’s why fans are already eagerly waiting for the 2nd season.
