What We Do In The Shadows, which takes its inspiration from the cult New Zealand comedy of the same name, returns for its second season on Wednesday, April 15th on FX.
Created by Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi, the show focuses on a group of four vampire roommates who live in Staten Island and find new and interesting way to screw up their lives over and over again.
“Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of Shadows fans by adapting the cult classic for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions in a statement back when the show was first renewed last year. “We also want to thank the rest of the creative team, including Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush, and the incredible cast and crew for delivering such a fun and original series, and we look forward to working with them all on season two.”
From the FX Website:
What We Do in the Shadows, based on the feature film by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, returns for its second season, documenting the nightly exploits of vampire roommates Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry), and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) as they navigate the modern world of Staten Island with the help of their human familiar, Guillermo (Harvey Guillén).
Over the course of the season, the vampires will try to find their way in a world of human Super Bowl parties, internet trolls, an energy vampire who gets a promotion and becomes drunk on power and of course, all the ghosts, witches, necromancers, zombies and shadowy cloaked assassins who roam freely in the Tri-State area. Is Guillermo destined to be a vampire or a vampire hunter? Or maybe just a familiar for the rest of his life?
Clement created the series. Clement, Waititi, and Paul Simms are Executive Producers with Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush and Stefani Robinson. What We Do in the Shadows is produced by FX Productions and stars Kayvan Novak, Harvey Guillén, Natasia Demetriou, Matt Berry and Mark Proksch.
