Upset at his lack of commitment, Angelique who is a witch kills Barnabas' parents. She then gets an angry mob to bury Barnabas alive in a coffin in the woods; forgotten for nearly years. Now in the s, construction workers accidentally unearth Barnabas' coffin, freeing him. He returns to Collinswood the family manor , finding it in a state of disrepair and inhabited with the dysfunctional remnants of his descendants and their loyal helpers. Barnabas entices Loomis into being his main helper and after convincing Elizabeth of who he is, is allowed to stay with the family as long as his nature remains a secret.
They concoct a cover story of him being a distant relative from England, returned to help rebuild the family fishery which has fallen into disrepair. It turns out that the reason for the Collins family's decline is that Angelique has built a rival company called Angelbay which she has used to summarily destroy the Collins family legacy.
Now Barnabas must deal with his family, confront Angelique, and restore the family's reputation. There's a lot more going on as well, including the fact that Barnabas is a vampire and has been feeding on a few of the locals, Victoria might be the reincarnation of Josette, Julia has some of her own plans for Barnabas, and Carolyn's issues might be more than that of a normal teenage girl's.

Phyllis Wicke. Victoria Winters arrives at Collinwood, a Gothic mansion on a cliff overlooking the ocean near the small Maine seaport town of Collinsport. She is the recently hired governess to troubled year-old David Collins.
David's gruff father, Roger, distrusts her, but his mysterious widowed sister Elizabeth is more hospitable. The simple and trouble-making groundskeeper, Willie Loomis, nephew of Collinwood housekeeper Mrs. Johnson, is convinced of an old Collins family legend of buried treasure and breaks into the Collins family crypt, accidentally releasing vampire Barnabas Collins from his tomb.
Barnabas introduces himself as a distant relative from England and begins to romance Victoria. At the same time, the town of Collinsport is beset by a series of deadly attacks. After being bitten a second time by Barnabas, Daphne Collins dies and rises a vampire.
She attacks first David, and then her boyfriend Joe Haskell who is bitten and falls under her spell. Professor Michael Woodard enlists Sheriff Patterson and the police to help him stop Daphne before she claims another victim.
Meanwhile, Dr. Julia Hoffman discovers Barnabas's secret when he casts no reflection in a mirror. She offers to cure him of his curse. Roger is revealed to be having an affair with local artist and tarot reader Maggie Evans. Julia Hoffman begins her experiments to cure Barnabas of his vampirism. Meanwhile, Professor Woodard attempts to uncover the identity of the vampire and begins to suspect Barnabas, but Julia will do anything to keep him from finding out. Victoria begins to fall for Barnabas.

Later, the ghost of Sarah Collins tells David that a newer evil exists. Julia and Sheriff Patterson respond to a call by Professor Woodard and discover that he is now a vampire; they are forced to kill him.
