Some good news: FX has renewed the vampire comedy “What We Do in the Shadows” for a second season.
So far this year, the series — which is based on the 2015 film of the same name — ranks in the Top 5 among 34 cable comedy series. Its first five episodes have averaged an audience of 2.81 million viewers across all platforms.
“[Executive producers] Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of ‘Shadows’ fans by adapting the cult classic [movie] for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans,” FX Original Programming president Nick Grad said in a statement.
In this week’s episode, Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry) and Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) appear before an international vampire tribunal to answer for the death of Baron Afanas (Doug Jones). The show promises “an extraordinary lineup of guest vampires” for the occasion.
Does that mean we might see Clement’s Vladislav or Waititi ‘s character Viago?
Season 2 will debut sometime in 2020.
