There are more fantasy and fictional programs for the fall season of 2013 than there was for the fall 2012 season. With the increase of fantasy programming in the last few years, television fantasy fans should have a larger selection and a higher quality of programming to choose from.
NBC has a vampire drama slash romance brewing for the fall season. Dracula starts October 25 on Fridays at 10:00 pm. While this is a remake of the vampire of Bram Stoker’s nightmares, it has a new twist.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays a vengeful Dracula that goes to London to find those that have wronged him. While there, he poses as a scientist trying to teach modern society about the virtues of then modern science. In the process of seeking revenge, Dracula meets Mina Murray, played by Jessica De Gouw, and becomes obsessed with her. He thinks she is the reincarnation of his long lost love. The first season is scheduled for ten shows.
ABC is keeping the American Avengers alive with the Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In this action series, Agent Phil Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, comes back from the death he suffered at the hands of Loki. Completely alive, Agent Coulson puts together a team of super agents that are qualified to take down the Earth’s super villains. It stars Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Chloe Bennet and Elizabeth Henstridge.
Another fantasy series that ABC is offering is Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. This series is based on Alice in Wonderland, with Sophie Lowe playing the part of Alice. The twist is that Alice is placed in an insane asylum for her stories about the rabbit hole and she falls in love with a genie named Cyrus. It premiers October 10 at 8:00 pm.
