There are roughly :checks notes: 400 million TV shows and films we are looking forward to in 2019, so we don’t say this lightly: it would be impossible for us to be any more excited for FX’s What We Do in the Shadows series. The 2014 comedy–written, directed, and starring Taika Waititi and Flight of the Conchords’ Jemaine Clement–about real vampires living in the modern world might be an even better premise for a sitcom. Plus Waititi and Clement have returned to write for the show, with Waititi directing some episodes. So yeah, we’re pretty hyped. If this all sounds like we’re possibly over-selling just how good the series could be, we’d argue we’re under-selling it, especially after seeing the latest teaser FX has fired up for it.This new promo opens with a sinister image, the kind we’d expect from a traditional vampire tale. Of course, What We Do in the Shadows is not your normal monster story.Told you.This is just the latest great teaser FX has released for the show, which stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Harvey Guillen, Natasia Demetriou, and Mark Proksch. If you’ve never seen the movie (for shame!), these promos perfectly capture the absurd humor of centuries old vampires dealing with the pitfalls of modern society, all told with the distinct comedic sensibilities of Waititi and Clement.Like we said, the movie is absolute perfection. Normally that would have us worried about a TV series living up to those expectations, but we couldn’t be more excited to hang with these immortal, hilarious beings again.
