Dark Shadows was a US TV Soap Opera with a supernatural theme, set in the Maine fishing town of Collinsport and around the wealthy Collins family who founded it. It featured the vampire Barnabas Collins and the werewolf turned immortal Quentin Collins. It was revived as a short lived TV series in the 1990s, and another pilot was made for an unproduced series in the 2000s. In 2012 Tim Burton directed a feature film of Dark Shadows with Johnny Depp in the role of Barnabas Collins.

Since 2006 the British company Big Finish have produced audio dramas for Dark Shadows, with many of the original soap's surviving cast reprising their roles.
