What was the show about?

Rated TV mature for violence and sexual content, the occasional cursing, the series was based on a vampire lovestory. Teenage demographic is the kind of setting that runs in the background of the show. Set in highschool, the show has two girls trying to find their place. One is a teenage vampire who sets her eyes on a new girl for her first kill. The other is a vampire hunter from the family of celebrated slayers.

Both of them go through a rollercoaster of a sexual tension. Initially thirsty for one another’s blood, the two leads fall in love with each other at the end of the first series. Even though it had a good line of tropes, the show really didn’t progress so well.
