UK Television: CBBC's Young Dracula Series 3 Officially Announced

Back in March, word came that the CBBC had given the green light for a third season of the popular series Young Dracula.

Now, it's official.

On 21st April, 2001, the BBC Press Office issued a press release detailing future children's television programming.  Included in the release is a bit more information about the third series of Young Dracula.

From the release:

The diverse range of commissions, The 4 O'Clock Club, Young Dracula, Sadie J and Tracy Beaker Returns feature a tantalising mix of vampires, feisty teens, squabbling siblings and care home antics.

By popular demand
Young Dracula is swooping back to CBBC. We pick up the story four years on and Vlad and the Count have fled from Stokely. Pursued by slayers and radical vampires alike, The Count and Vlad keep a low profile and "hide in plain sight" by buying a school. The Count is determined that Vlad fulfils his destiny to lead the vampire race, but this is threatened by The Count's own tendency to create mayhem and disaster on a daily basis and by the re-emergence of the anarchic Ingrid, who brings a trail of destruction in her wake.

An irreverent, gothic comedy,
Young Dracula shines a mischievous light on family relationships and what it is to be a teenager trying to make his way in the world. The third 13x30 minute series will be filmed around Liverpool and promises some exciting new characters as well as the return of familiar favourites. The series is produced by Lis Steele and executive produced by Josephine Ward.

With filming scheduled to begin in May 2011 it shouldn't be too much longer before we see Young Dracula back on our screens!
