'First Kill' Fan Review: 'So relatable' say viewers who are keeping fingers crossed for a second season
Netflix has been a game changer in terms of intriguing twists to beloved genres. This time they are back with a new series called 'First Kill' in the vampire romance genre that is already gaining a serious fanbase. Two girls from absolutely different backgrounds are pitted against each other, only to fall in love.
The new series is something that depicts a teenage romance between a vampire and a monster hunter. 'First Kill' is adapted by V E Schwab from her short story of the same name, with Felicia D Henderson serving as showrunner. Fans are all into this as they are crushing over the protagonists.
The show released on the 10th of June with a plot so good that it instantly gained an instant fanbase that is hoping for a second season. But will they get it is still up to Netflix, who have a history of unceremoniously dumping shows with strong female leads (The OA, Anne of Green Gables).
The upcoming show is about the forbidden love between a vampire and a monster hunter. Juliette (Hook), a young vampiress is getting ready to make her first kill while Calliope (Lewis), from a family of slayers, gets ready to stake her first vampire. A fan tweeted with "Watched all of First Kill today and I’ve never watched a show that gave me so much yet nothing. Rooting for S2 #First Kill" while another added, "If the kissing booth can get 3 movies then first kill can get a 2nd season #First Kill"

Some fans also celebrated the fact that they cast Elizabeth Mitchell in the movie and were keen to see the character she has played. The original synopsis reads, "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." What do you think will happen when the girls who are in love have to face the reality of their missions and goals to get a place in their families.
One fan added, "#First kill really went the extra mile and put Elizabeth Mitchell in there.. The gays keep winning #HappyPride"
Some fans also took to Twitter to write about how the two protagonists in the film were 'so relatable'. One wrote, "Juliette and Cal’s first ever interaction is so relatable! Like ughhhh Juliette is so me around my crush. Awkward and embarrassing #FirstKill" while another added, "I was okay with #FirstKill at first but kinda bummed that they’re immediately canon but holy shit the angst in season 2 is gonna be so good! Love me some lovers to enemies trope"
