Jonathan Rhys Meyers

JONATHAN Rhys Meyers is to shoot the second series of hit TV show Dracula.

The Irish heartthrob confirmed that a new season of the show, which he also co-produces, had been commissioned.  Rhys Meyer unveiled the news at a party thrown by actress Goldie Hawn in London.

Dracula features a strong Irish cast with Katie McGrath from Bray and Dublin native Victoria Smurfit, who now resides in Los Angeles. Smurfit plays the fashion forward vampire slayer, Lady Jayne Wetherby.

Meyers is also set to play the late punk singer Joe Strummer in a film about The Clash, with filming due to get underway later this year.

What Fans Expect to See in ‘Dracula’ TV Series Season 2

Amid concerns that their favourite TV show “Dracula” may get cancelled, fans hope that the series returns for season 2. Many have their wish list for what they would like to see in the popular show starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Van Helsing – Vampire Hunter

Fans were eagerly waiting for what was seen as an eventuality, the falling out between Van Helsing and Dracula. Fans did get to see what happens towards the end of season 1 and the bitter rivalry between the two, fans expect, should intensify in season 2.

Van Helsing has always been seen as a vampire hunter, and fans want to see how the new series could develop the character in this new role in season 2. The plot could get intense with Dracula, Van Helsing and the Order of the Dragon fighting each other to the death.

Advertise to Get Attention

Some of the fans complain that the series was not advertised enough. Some fans say that they only started watching the show from mid season, as they accidently stumbled on to the show and have become huge fans of it.

However, the question of spending more money on advertising depends a lot on expected revenues that the show will generate. The producers may not be able to take too much risk if they feel that the response from the audience is not strong enough.

The Bite of the Vampire

While some fans would like to see more blood and gore in the season 2 of “Dracula” TV series, others feel that the element of seduction of young women should be taken up a notch. There are, however, no complaints with regard to the performance of Jonathan Rhys Meyers and the other cast members in the show.

Renfield – The Surprise Favourite

Perhaps even the producers of “Dracula” could not have foreseen the tremendous popularity of the character. The portrayal of the character marks a refreshing departure from what fans have seen in the past, and fans want to see the character return.

Timing is Everything

Some of the fans complain that airing the show late night on a Friday would certainly not help in getting more people to watch the show. Many fans have to make the difficult decision of going out on a Friday night or staying at home to watch the show.

Fans of the “Dracula” series are concerned that NBC still has not given a go ahead for a second season. Fearing that their most loved show on TV may never return, fans have decided to petition NBC for a second season.

 ”Dracula” had a brilliant start, with a cast like Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the lead actor coupled with an intricate and fresh plot the show had everything going for it. But then the numbers of the viewership came in.

The producers of the show may not have liked the relatively lower viewership and the consequent revenues the show generated but that did start to change after the fifth episode. More and more people started to join in to enjoy the show, but will that be enough?

Many of the viewers blame the timing and inadequate promotion of the show as the main cause for the lower numbers for the show. They are hoping that NBC could address these issues in the next season.

There are a few sites online which are asking for fans to sign a petition to request NBC to consider renewing “Dracula” for a second season. One of the popular petitions with one of the largest number of petitioners was started by Ms Catherine Flynn from Portsmouth, Virginia.

With an ambitious goal of 15 thousand signatures the petition has already covered a lot of ground and has over 10 thousand signatures as of Feb. 3, 2014. Fans are hopeful that this gesture may tilt the scales in their favour when NBC decides on the question of renewal of “Dracula.”

The long and passionate appeal of Ms Flynn may give NBC a lot to think about. Perhaps the biggest take away from the petition is for the cast of “Dracula.” Fans have heaped a lot of praise not only on the brilliant performance of Jonathan Rhys Meyers but also on the other cast members.

Will this translate into more actual viewers of the show? Fans seem to think so and Ms Flynn contends that more and more people “stumbled on” to the show and found it to be very entertaining. Perhaps that partly explains why the show gained some momentum after the fifth episode.

“Dracula” fans who wish to stand together with the other petitioners may do so by clicking here and join the others in Change.org. Will this base of the hardcore fans of the show be able to spread the message and get the show renewed for a second season? Or will NBC leave them disappointed?

Dracula star Nonso Anozie has said that he is eager for his character to evolve in season two.

The English actor told Digital Spy that he is unsure if the Jonathan Rhys Meyers drama will be renewed.

“NBC keep their cards close to their chest,” he said. “But we talk to [the writers] all the time; we talk via email quite a lot.

“We talk to the producers quite a lot as well, about possibilities of the future and what can happen to our characters. We have to just wait and see.”

Anozie plays Renfield on Dracula, though his “cool, calm and collected” take on the role differs from previous takes on the deranged villain.

“There is potential for him to go anywhere,” the actor said. “I love playing Renfield as cool, calm and collected, but I would love to play darker and more crazy – if that was to happen that would be amazing too.”

Renfield’s own agenda away from Dracula (Rhys Meyers) could be explored in more detail if the show returns, Anozie added.

“I think Renfield has got a lot of different plans, whether we actually see them is another thing,” he said. “But I think there is an ultimate plan.

“I think somewhere in the back of his mind he knows there will be a time where his services will no longer be needed. He may need to have an exit plan.”

Dracula: Season One is available on DVD and Blu-ray from Monday, February 10.
