‘Wellington Paranormal’ Gets July Premiere Date

It will be a summer of scares for 2021 both in theaters and on television as CBR has reported Wellington Paranormal, the spin-off of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s series What We Do in the Shadows, will premiere on Sunday, July 11 at 9 PM, EST.

Coming in a wave of return-to-air date announcements this week, the first two episodes will premiere back-to-back. Wellington Paranormal actually finished its third season on New Zealand television but The CW’s airings will be the show’s first appearance in the United States.

The series’ episodes will debut on The CW then be available to stream on HBO Max the day after they air.

What We Do in the Shadows as a franchise began as a 2014 mockumentary style horror/comedy film written and directed by Clement and Waititi. Although the film had modest box office return, it received very positive reviews and gave life to the both the TV series of the same title as well as Wellington Paranormal.

The spin-off follows the adventures of Officers O’Leary (Karen O’Leary) and Minogue (Mike Minogue), hard-working members of the Wellington constabulary’s paranormal unit who, under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka (Maaka Pohatu), investigate supernatural occurrences that arise in the capital of New Zealand on a surprisingly regular basis.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
