Despite season one of Dracula ending on a rather deadly note for its title character, it seems a second could still be on the cards.

The BBC series' star Claes Bang, as well as creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, have teased the possibility of season two (despite nothing being given the green light as of yet), as well as some ideas should it happen.

"I hope it's not the end!" the actor told Radio Times. "I have to say, I so want to do a second series – just because I want to – but also because I want to see how Steven and Mark will bring him and Agatha back to life.

"So just to sort of find out how they're going to do that... I don't know [if it's over], but I hope not."

Moffat noted: "I mean, it's a show about resurrection. That's literally what the main superpower of the main character is.

"Dracula started the show dead and then died again in episode two and came back. And then died again. Sister Agatha died and came back. I mean, everyone's dying on that show. So, we'll see."

"Apparently if you pour blood onto Dracula's ashes he comes back," Gatiss added. "Who knows? Dracula tends to come back, that's what vampires do – but we have no idea [if the show will return]."

While we don't know exactly where a second season of Dracula could go story-wise, Bang did say: "Mark has said to me that now he can stand in the light the only idea they have for him is on a beach in Mexico with a tin – you know that thing where you get a sun tan?

"That's the only idea they have at the moment – that's what he said to me. That would be very lovely to film, yes. I'm not sure whether that was a joke when he said it!"

Gatiss also admitted he would like to reprise his character Renfield, explaining: "I did have fun playing Renfield. We actually sort of merged Harker and Renfield.

"So Jonathan ends up eating flies. And then the idea of Dracula having a lawyer who'd spring him came about, and it was like, 'Actually that could be Renfield!'.

"And then it just became fun to do. We thought about other stuff, and maybe more if we do more… but who knows?"

Dracula aired on BBC One.
