WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS to End with Season 6

It appears one vampire coven’s time in Staten Island is coming to an end. Via Vulture, we’ve learned that next year’s sixth season of the undead comedy series What We Do in the Shadows will be its last. At the end of season four, FX renewed the series for a further two seasons, to the joy of many of the show’s most hardcore fans. But after 2024, it will be time to say farewell to Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), and their human familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillén).

A spin-off of Taika Waititi’s 2014 film of the same name, the show grew beyond its predecessor into a legit cult phenomenon of its own. It earned some 21 Emmy Nominations, winning for Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes in 2022. However, none so far for its incredible and hilarious cast, who deserve all the accolades. So why end now? Showrunner Paul Simms said the biggest question the series needed to answer before the finale was what would happen with Guillermo. However, Guillermo got his wish to become a vampire in season five only to change his mind becoming human again. It seems that completes his arc.

What We Do in the Shadows is one of the best vampire series ever on TV, not to mention one of the best comedies ever made for TV. So we are very sad to see it go. However, we can’t deny six seasons is a good run. Most other great vampire shows like Buffy and True Blood only saw diminishing returns after their fifth or sixth seasons. So maybe now is a good time to bow out for our immortal friends. But if there is any show that is deserving of the “six seasons and a movie” push, we think it’s What We Do in the Shadows. Let’s raise a glass of AB Negative to our undead friends.
