The premiere of the What We Do in the Shadows TV series is getting closer every day. As such, FX is releasing hilarious promo after hilarious promo for the vampire flatmate comedy. Fortunately for fans of the hysterical horror mockumentary, today was no exception. The most recent teaser featured a very modern dilemma for the ancient creatures of darkness, specifically: don’t headphones get in the way of drinking blood?
What We Do in the Shadows will follow a similar plot to the film of the same name. In it, three vampire roommates must deal not only with their unholy curse, but with the trials of living in the modern world and with each other. These are different vampires from the ones we saw in the hit 2014 mockumentary, but their struggles and the comedy that comes along with it are very familiar. (Familiar! Get it? Hoo boy, I am lonely.) Today’s teaser, is just another example of the dry, situational comedy that fans can expect from the horror comedy series. What We Do in the Shadows debuts on FX on March 27th, 2019.
Until then, we’ve got a lot of content for anyone excited about the series. For example, you could check out my coverage of the What We Do in the Shadows panel at New York Comic Con last year. Producers Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement spoke, and what they had to say was predictably hilarious.
