The BBC have now confirmed it officially:
By popular demand Young Dracula is swooping back to CBBC. We pick up the story four years on and Vlad and the Count have fled from Stokely. Pursued by slayers and radical vampires alike, The Count and Vlad keep a low profile and "hide in plain sight" by buying a school. The Count is determined that Vlad fulfils his destiny to lead the vampire race, but this is threatened by The Count's own tendency to create mayhem and disaster on a daily basis and by the re-emergence of the anarchic Ingrid, who brings a trail of destruction in her wake.
An irreverent, gothic comedy, Young Dracula shines a mischievous light on family relationships and what it is to be a teenager trying to make his way in the world. The third 13x30 minute series will be filmed around Liverpool and promises some exciting new characters as well as the return of familiar favourites. The series is produced by Lis Steele and executive produced by Josephine Ward.
Georgia Lock will return in the lead role of the feisty 13 year old making her way in a male-dominated world.
There are some new characters coming in to the show and casting director Kerrie Mailey is currently looking for suggestions for the following:
Taylor, male, aged 14
(Especially looking for ethnic suggestions for this role)
Meet Taylor Bell - a drop dead gorgeous surfer dude. Taylor’s got the looks of
Justin Bieber and the clumsiness of a young Frank Spencer.
Ashlii, female, aged 14
(Again especially looking for ethnic suggestions)
Essex born Ashlii is part fairy princess, part pit-bull. When Ashlii grows up she’s going to be Amy Childs (from The Only Way is Essex). Stylish, switched on, gorgeous and a supreme social networker (her smart phone is NEVER off).

Said director Gary Ross of the casting decision, "Its so exciting to find an amazing young actress like the one we just met. Prim is an emotionally demanding role and in many ways she is the cornerstone of the story. Willow Shields will make an amazing Prim and we're very lucky to have her."
