Co-stars Medalion Rahimi (Stella) and Dakota Shapiro (David) are still on board to appear in the shows pilot episode. What’s the latest? Well, executive producer Rob Thomas just shared an update.

While chatting with Deadline, Thomas revealed that a new pilot will begin filming this fall:

The writer, Heather Mitchell, is doing a rewrite on the script right now, we have gotten through the notes process. We are going to shoot the pilot this fall. There were scenes that we thought we could do a better job on, so it’s going through a 40% rewrite. It’s not a total rewrite.

The pilot episode will be directed by Catherine Hardwicke, which is executive produced by Rob Thomas, Heather Mitchell, Dan Etheridge, Mike Karz, and Bill Bindley. Rebecca Franko and Juliana Janes are producing.

Synopsis: “Welcome to sunny seaside Santa Carla, home to a beautiful boardwalk, all the cotton candy you can eat…and a secret underworld of vampires. After the sudden death of their father, two brothers move to Santa Carla with their mother, who hopes to start anew in the town where she grew up. But the brothers find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the seductive world of Santa Carla’s eternally beautiful and youthful undead.
