During the Television Critics Association summer press tour earlier today, FX Networks announced that What We Do in the Shadows has been renewed for a fourth season, and to accompany the big news, they also dropped the official trailer for the upcoming third season.
“Fans can’t seem to get enough of What We Do in the Shadows and FX is ready to feed that appetite by setting up the series for a fourth season. Our thanks to the extraordinary job by the creative team, cast, and crew who keep making a great show better each season.,” said FX Entertainment original programming chief Nick Grad in a statement.
The new season will pick up shortly after the shocking events of the season two finale, which saw Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) all discover that their seemingly mild-mannered human familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) is actually an extremely gifted vampire hunter and a descendent of the legendary Van Helsing.
What We Do in the Shadows season three premieres on September 2 with back-to-back episodes. In the first of the two installments, "Guillermo's fate hangs in the balance as the vampires receive a promotion.," while the synopsis for the latter episode reads, "A forbidden artifact is used to help Nandor court a health club employee."
What We Do in the Shadows follows four vampires who’ve “lived” together for hundreds of years. In Season 3, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms and supernatural curiosities galore.
