'What We Do In The Shadows': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything else about the hilarious vampire series
Set in New York City, 'What We Do In the Shadows' lasting ten episodes narrates the story of three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years
'What We Do in the Shadows’ which released in 2014 was one of the funniest horror mocumentaries to come out of New Zealand. Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, who created and co-starred in the film, are now back with an extended version of the bizarre and ridiculous story about a group of vampires.
The FX show is set to capitalize on the fact that the Kiwi film became a cult classic all over the world. From the set of teasers and trailers that have been released so far, it is pretty evident that the series will enjoy as much success as the movie, if not more.

Set in New York City, 'What We Do In the Shadows' lasting ten episodes narrates the story of three vampires who have been roommates for hundreds and hundreds of years. Like most roommates, they have a bunch of problems, including general hygiene, cleanliness and house rules. It doesn’t help that immortality is a part of that equation.
While a crew filming their lives set up shop in their home, the vampire roommates try to be as accommodating as they can, while also focusing on their one goal — “total and complete domination of the New World.”
