FX's 'What We Do in the Shadows' Renewed for Second Season
Published May 07, 2019While the first season of What We Do in the Shadows still has four episodes left to air, the mockumentary series has now been picked up for a second season.
Based on Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement's 2014 film of the same name, the TV adaptation follows the day-to-day lives of three vampires living together in Staten Island. The show's second season is slated to debut in 2020.
"Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of Shadows fans by adapting the cult classic for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans," FX president of original programming Nick Grad said in a statement.
He continued: "We also want to thank the rest of the creative team, including Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush, and the incredible cast and crew for delivering such a fun and original series, and we look forward to working with them all on season two."
The first season of What We Do in the Shadows will conclude May 29. You can watch a preview for the season's seventh episode, which airs tomorrow (May 8), below.
