I Woke Up a Vampire is the latest kids show dominating family households across the world, but fans are frustrated by confirmation that Netflix will delay the release of episode 9 and instead split the show into two seasons. Here is everything to know about the series.
I Woke Up a Vampire episode 9 to be re-released as season 2
Season 1 of I Woke Up a Vampire actually includes 16 episodes that aired between May and September on the Family Channel, a Canadian specialty network from WildBrain – with episode 9 being released all the way back in July 2023.
Despite I Woke Up a Vampire season 1 having a total of 16 episodes and episode 9 being in its library, Netflix has decided to delay the release of episodes 9-16 in favor of splitting the launch across two individual seasons.
The reason why Netflix is delaying the release of episode 9 and labeling it as season 2 hasn’t specifically been revealed. However, the streaming giant looks to maintain both interest and viewership in a series for as long as physically (or digitally) possible in order to generate more revenue.
It’s the same reason why some of Netflix’s major shows such as Stranger Things and The Witcher release over multiple parts instead of in one big premiere – although that doesn’t mean this still isn’t incredibly frustrating for fans.
Editor for the series Rob Chandler recently confirmed on his personal website that the remaining episodes would be released as ‘season 2’ on Netflix and that the final set of episodes will arrive before the end of 2023:
“A super cool project I cut just dropped on NETFLIX worldwide “I WOKE UP A VAMPIRE” a big exciting scripted teen show, 2 Seasons back to back.”
The episode synopses for the remaining chapters of I Woke Up a Vampire, episodes 9 through 16, are as follows:
