FX has released a new teaser trailer for Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s highly anticipated upcoming What We Do In The Shadows comedy series. The teaser features a group of vampires celebrating a birthday, and the way it plays out is pretty amusing.
The series is based on the incredibly funny mokumentary film of the same, but this series follows a group of vampires living together in Staten Island and the other boroughs. We won’t see any of the characters from the movie, but it looks like it will be a great show!
Here’s a synopsis that was released for the series:
“Much like the movie, the series follows three vampires who live together: Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the former two are husband and wife. Also living with them is a fourth vampire named Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), who’s an “energy vampire.” Instead of blood, he sucks the energy out of his victims by boring them to death with mundane anecdotes and bad jokes. The office is his feeding ground, but his powers also work on his vampire roomies.”
The series is also said to focus on the vampires receiving notice that “an ancient leader vampire named the Baron is coming to pay them a visit from abroad, purportedly to see how conquering America is going.”
The series also stars Harvey Guillen (The Internship), Doug Jones (The Shape of Water), Beanie Feldstein (Lady Bird), and Jake McDorman.
What We Do in the Shadows premieres in March of this year!
