The exciting new trailer for Warwick Thornton‘s South Australian filmed vampire series Firebite has been released today – check it out below!

Filmed at the SAFC’s Adelaide Studios and in Coober Pedy in the South Australian Outback, the eight-episode series takes a new spin on the vampire genre, following two First Nations hunters Tyson (Rob Collins, Cleverman, Extraction) and Shanika (South Australian actor Shantae Barnes-Cowan), on their quest to battle the last colony of vampires in the middle of the South Australian desert. The series also stars Yael Stone (Orange Is the New Black) and Callan Mulvey (Avengers: End Game), amongst others.

Firebite is created, directed and written by Thornton (Samson and Delilah, Sweet Country) alongside Brendan Fletcher (Mad Bastards), with Tony Krawitz (The Tall Man, Dead Europe) joining as director. The series is produced by South Australian producer Paul Ranford (Stateless, True History of the Kelly Gang) alongside Dena Curtis (Elements, Grace Beside Me), who is co-producing. Firebite is an AMC Studios original production with See-Saw Films.

Firebite premieres in Australia and the US on AMC+ on 16 December, 2021. Australian viewers can watch via the AMC+ streaming bundle on Apple TV and Amazon Prime.
