FX Renews ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ For Third Season

The shadows will hold even more thrills, chills and zany adventures next season on FX.

The popular comedic vampire series What We Do In The Shadows–a spinoff from the 2014 movie of the same name–has been re-upped for a third season on FX, according to Deadline.

The major reason for the renewal? People glued to their TV sets, naturally. Reports say viewership rose over the course of the second season–which will wrap up June 10–and FX jumped at the chance to continue the series.

In fact, Deadline reports, FX said the show’s second season “…which is averaging 3.2 million viewers across linear and digital platforms–including FX on Hulu–through its first six episodes, was up 25 percent on Season 1.”

The series stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen and Mark Proksch and features four vampires who have lived  for hundreds of years in the “forgotten” borough of Staten Island in New York City.  The cast of unique characters includes Nandor the Relentless, who hails from the era of the Ottoman Empire; British vampire Lazlo; Nadja, his lover; Guillermo, Nandor’s human familiar who craves to be a vampire; and Colin, an “energy vampire” who feasts on human boredom and annoyance.

One of the highlights of the second season was the guest appearance of Star Wars legend Mark Hamill (as reported in Horror News Network), who played a vengeful vampire searching for Lazlo.  Other guest stars this season included: Benedict Wong, Haley Joel Osment, and Craig Robinson among others.

Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Entertainment, praised the series. “Week in and week out,” he said, “the producers, writers and our amazing cast continue to make one of the funniest and best comedy series on TV.”
