Focused on a new group of house-sharing vamps, this time holed up in Staten Island, who have been “living” together for hundreds of years, What We Do in the Shadows follows the four immortals and their human familiar as they deal with day-to-day life and reckon with the appearance of their ancient leader Baron Afanas.
The core cast is really exciting, as we get to meet Matt Berry as the roughish British vampire Laszlo; Kayvan Novak as the group’s leader, a great Ottoman warrior known as Nandor the Relentless; and Natasia Demetriou as Nadja, a seductive and whip-smart woman who happens to be Laszlo’s wife. They’re joined by a new type of monster in a day-walking Energy Vampire played by Mark Proksch, and Nandor’s familiar Guillermo brought to life by Harvey Guillén. When the group’s old leader appears, they’re faced with their biggest challenge yet… world domination!
This first trailer promises a whole bunch of surreal laughs, just like the film that inspired it, and we cannot wait to see more when the show hits FX on March 27 at 10PM ET/PT. Until then we’ll just have to rewatch the brilliant original which is currently streaming on Kanopy which you can access for free with your library card!
