Carmilla is a Canadian web series, created by Jordan Hall and Ellen Simpson, based on the 1871 novella of the same name by Sheridan Le Fanu. It premiered on the KindaTV (previously Vervegirl) YouTube channel on August 19th, 2014.

The series takes place at the fictional Silas University in Styria, Austria, where more strange things happen than normal. The series is told from the perspective of Laura, a freshman student who is investigating the disappearance of her roommate, when she is suddenly assigned a mysterious new roommate named Carmilla.

The series is a multi-platform digital media experience with many outlets on social media sites, where fans can follow the characters' stories when they are not on-screen. Currently boasting over 10 million views, the first season consists of 36 three to seven minute episodes. A Christmas special was aired on December 24, 2014. On December 9, 2014, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on June 2nd, 2015. The series is executively produced by the tampon brand U by Kotex.

Carmilla has been highly praised for its near all-female cast and representation of various queer characters.
