BBC Two Sets June UK Premiere Date For ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ Season 2
BBC Two has set a June premiere date for Season 2 of critically acclaimed vampire comedy ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘ it has been 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).
After an unexpected visit from their dark lord and leader, Baron Afanas, the vampires are reminded of what they were initially tasked with upon their arrival in Staten Island over a hundred years ago – total and complete domination of the New World. But what exactly is the best way to go about achieving said domination? The vérité camera crew follows along as the vampires set out to answer this query.
Season two 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?
In the opening episode, titled “Resurrection”, Nadja and Laszlo’s new familiar poses problems for an increasingly anxious Guillermo. Meanwhile, the vampires enlist the services of a local necromancer.
