Plot

Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s 2014 mockumentary ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ spawned a television series of the same name in 2019. Unlike the film, the series is based not in New Zealand, but in Staten Island, New York. And while Waititi and Clement have both reprised their roles in the show as cameos, the FX series is based on the shenanigans of a different group of four vampire flatmates. 

Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry), and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), and Nandor’s human servant Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) drive the story. While the series is mostly unconnected misadventures, a central theme in the show has been Guillermo’s character arc. At the end of season 1, he discovered that he was a descendant of Van Helsing, the legendary vampire hunter. 

Season 2 has followed this arc, as we have seen Guillermo turning out to be a more than adept vampire slayer. Although he isn’t a vampire hunter per se, his skills and unfortunate circumstances have led to scores of vampire deaths at his hands at this point. Season 2 has not finished yet, but it is only a matter of time before his masters notice his prodigious skills, no matter how dimwitted they are. Nandor has already begun to suspect. 

Season 3, no doubt will carry this arc ahead. The only question is: Will the vampires be able to make peace with the fact that their servant Guillermo is their genetic mortal enemy?
