A bloody new trailer for NBC’s Dracula series was released to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con, and it looks like the blood will be flowing in buckets once this one arrives in the fall.

The sexy, bloody trailer is the best setup yet to show what fans can look forward to — and this one lands right in the sweet spot of a Victorian-era True Blood. It’s graphic, and it shows off quite a bit of vampy lovemaking and gruesome death.

Set in the 1890s, the series stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Dracula, though he’s assumed the identity of an American businessman to keep his bloodsucking a secret. The cast is rounded out by Arrow alum Jessica DeGouw as Dracula’s love interest, and Thomas Kretschmann as a new twist on Van Helsing.

Check out the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be watching when this one arrives in the fall:
