FX Renews ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ For Season 3
FX has renewed the critically acclaimed vampire comedy ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘ for a 3rd Season the US network has announced.
Based on the feature film by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ documents 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).
The renewal is pretty understandable, as the 2nd Season, which is currently airing in the US, has seen a 25% jump in total viewership from Season 1. It is currently averaging 3.2 million total viewers across all linear and non-linear platforms through the first six episodes.
“We’re incredibly happy that critics and audiences are all in on Shadows,” Grad said. “Week in and week out, the producers, writers and our amazing cast continue to make one of the funniest and best comedy series on TV.”
It’s not just viewers at home, but critics who have been praising the series. ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ ranks among the most critically acclaimed series on TV, with the second season scoring a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and a Metacritic score of 80 for universal acclaim.
Season 2, which is due to land on BBC Two in the UK later this year, sees the vampires 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, Waititi and Paul Simms are Executive Producers with Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush and Stefani Robinson. The series is produced by FX Productions.
‘What We Do In The Shadows‘ airs on BBC Two in the UK.
