Not enough bloodthirsty vampires in your life?

The creators of BBC's "Sherlock" -- Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss -- are working on a new Dracula miniseries starring Danish actor Claes Bang as the Count.

Today, they shared the first photo of the actor in character, with fangs, blood-red eyes, and some gruesome-looking nails. He looks like he just enjoyed a bit of snack and is going back for seconds.

Bang previously played a bleached-blond bad guy in "The Girl in the Spider's Web and costarred in Best Foreign Language Film Oscar nominee "The Square."

Among the rest of the cast:  John Heffernan, Dolly Wells, Catherine Schell, and Clive Russell.

"Dracula" will be told in three feature-length parts. Jonny Campbell ("Westworld") is directing  the first chapter, Damon Thomas ("Killing Eve") directs the second, and Paul McGuigan ("Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool") directs the third.

The story will unfold in its original Victorian setting, unlike "Sherlock," which was updated to take place in the preset day.

“I am thrilled to be taking on the role of Dracula, especially when the script is in the hands of the incredible talents of Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and the team responsible for 'Sherlock',” Bang said in an earlier statement. "I'm so excited that I get to dig in to this iconic and super-interesting character. Yes he’s evil, but there’s also so much more to him, he’s charismatic, intelligent, witty and sexy. I realize that there’s a lot to live up to with all the amazing people that have played him over the years, but I feel so privileged, to be taking on this incredible character.”

"Dracula" will debut on Netflix, but air on BBC One in the U.K. and Ireland.
