The second season of FX’s “What We Do in the Shadows” has arguably been even better than the first, expanding upon the world in hilarious and wonderfully absurd ways, and we’re excited to report tonight that the vampire mockumentary series – which is of course a spinoff of the same-titled movie – has been renewed by FX for an upcoming third season!
Season two, meanwhile, will wrap up on June 10th.
Viewership is up for the second season, Deadline reports, which would explain why FX has eagerly ordered up another batch of episodes. Deadline explains, “FX said that the second season, which is averaging 3.2M total viewers across linear and digital platforms, including FX on Hulu, through its first six episodes, was up 25% on season one.”
Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillén and Mark Proksch star in “What We Do in the Shadows,” based on Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi‘s 2014 film.
The series follows the lives of four vampires living together in Staten Island, New York. The second season has seen vampire Nandor’s human familiar Guillermo struggling with the realization that he’s a born vampire killer, part of the legendary Van Helsing family of slayers, while “energy vampire” Colin Robinson has been growing stronger than ever before.
