When ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ was at the peak of its popularity, there were many who couldn’t pick a favorite between Buffy the protagonist and Willow her best-friend. Willow happened to be one the first few LGBT+ characters on a major hit show and some ‘Buffy-Willow’ fan-fiction was inevitable. And then there were a whole host of fans who firmly believed Buffy belonged with the Vampire Spike. Well, Netflix’s 2022 Vampire show ‘First Kill’ is giving viewers just the kind of show that perfectly mixes all elements of the ‘Buffy-Willow-Spike’ romance – a story about a lady-monster-hunter falling for a pretty Vampire! The quintessential forbidden love story fans can never get enough of.
Netflix dropped the official trailer on YouTube and kind of gave away a LOT of the story already. Falling in love is tricky for teens Juliette and Calliope: One’s a vampire, the other’s a vampire hunter — and both are ready to make their first kill. – reads the description. Imani Lewis looks every bit a badass monster-hunter Calliope, while Sarah Catherine Hook has a more of a Bella Swan aesthetic, instead of a young teen vampire. But the two actors look like a promising pair and the trailer promises to give viewers an action-packed show.
First Kill Season 1 premieres June 10 on Netflix.
