Poll: Which Paranormal Series Should Hit Screens Next?

by Amy Wilkins, Harlequin Digital

Next week sees the premiere of the new TV series The Vampire Diaries. Based on the books by L.J. Smith, it’s about a teenage girl with hot two vampire brothers – one good, one evil – fighting over her soul and those of her friends, family and neighbours. Everyone’s already well aware of the hit TV show True Blood based on Charlaine Harris‘s Sookie Stackhouse series, and the hugely popular Twilight movies. With more TV and movie rights to popular paranormal book series (like P.C. and Kristin Cast’s YA House of Night series) being snapped up, obviously paranormal has hit Hollywood in a big way just like publishing!

So Harlequin Paranormal Romance Blog wants to know what other books are you dying (ooops, totally unintentional pun there!) to see made into a series for TV or movies? Vote below! And don’t forget to tell us why in the comments or if your choice isn’t already in the poll…

  1. I would love to see the Black Dagger Brotherhood brought to life, but it would probably disappoint me because it would never do justice to the books.
    The paranormal series that I think would make a great weekly tv show that didn’t make the poll list is Charlaine Harris’ “Harper Connelly” series about the woman who was struck by lightning and can locate dead bodies – great mystery and paranormal mix in my opinion. I like this series by Charlaine Harris nearly as much as her Sookie Stackhouse books.

  2. Kresly Cole’s books are both fun and emotionally satisfying. Bring it on!

  3. I would like to see the Demonica books by Larissa Ione turned into a series. It would be good for people who like the paranormal and medical dramas.

    Also LA Banks Crimson moon books.

    I would like to see Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy made into movies like Twilight. I would also like to see some kind of movie or HBO series of Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series. Those books are awesome but I say HBO because they are risque.

  6. I say “Bring ‘Em All On!”

    Romance movies used to be strictly female-targeted Lifetime flicks for a Saturday morning.

    But Romance overall, and several sub-genres in particular – Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, Romantic Suspense, and Action/Adventure Romance – have evolved into the most mainstream and popular of media. The response to New Moon & True Blood at ComicCon this year clearly shows the market potential of Romantic Fiction.

    Series like those listed above are exciting, well-written and fantastically visual while still touching on the common human experience.

    IMHO it’s about time Hollywood Execs took note of the popularity of the genre, abundance of solid stories, and built-in market for romantic fiction by investing in some well-adapted, well-produced movies based on books like every one of those listed above.

    Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed Series!!! Very original and suspenseful. The guys are very unique and so incredibly sexy. Their counterpart breedmates utterly complete them in so many ways. I love the characters; Lara has developed them so very well. Just an excellent series that builds upon each book-just can’t get enough!

  8. I would LOVE to see J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger series made into some movies or HBO series. Those books kick ass. Or even made for TV movies as long as they have the support they would need. Great actors and awesome sets would be essential.

    Larissa Ione’s Demonica series would really make an awesome series. Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, with medical drama all wrapped up in one. Perfect. :)

  9. Gena’s series LOTU is fantastic. I’ve read the others and have enjoyed them but in her’s there’s so much more. The whole pandora’s box and having to hunt for items and crazy love. Hot men!! I think this would make a great show. It’s not just mushy. It’s action packed too. I would so watch it!!!!!

  11. Definitely Gena’s Lords of the Underworld, I love reading them and I think they would make a good series of movies.

  12. I think that Sherriiyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series is emminently suitable for a TV series – - Lots of action, lots of characters (with a stable core), interesting places – good solid storylines.

  13. hard shoice. I know the are making the anita blake seris into a shoe\w already so wither maggie or gena

  14. If were talking YA tv series then you could go with Melissa De La Cruz (blue bloods), Rachel Cain (morganville vampire) or Ellen Schreiber (Vampire Kisses) . As far as us adults goes I would love to see Gena Showalter or J.R. Ward’s brought to screen. There’s always Christine Feehan’s Dark series or P. C. Cast’s House of Night series as well. So many choices………

  15. Nicole J.K.

    It was hard to choose but i would really like to see j.r. ward and laurell hamilton’s work be seen on the big screen or t.v. everyone books are so good it would be nice to see them go manga too!

  16. @Kate M. I actually left House of Night off for a reason since I know a movie company has already bought the rights to (hopefully) make it a film.

    Hadn’t heard that Anita Blake series was already in the works so thanks @renee :)

  17. I would like to see Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter series made into movies or a tv show.

  18. Nothing beats the Lords of the Underworld. They were so good when I finished the set. I went to reading about mythology, which I never had an interest in before. i adore Gena, she’s awesome!

  19. DEMONICA NOVELS! HANDS DOWN!!! would be a wicked HBO series!
