What We Do in the Shadows season 4 ordered before season 3 begins

The third season of What We Do in the Shadows won’t start airing on FX until September 2nd, but the network is so happy to stay in the What We Do in the Shadows business that they’ve already ordered a fourth season of the show! What We Do in the Shadows season 4 will debut in 2022.

FX’s Nick Grad had this to say about the early renewal:

Fans can’t seem to get enough of What We Do in the Shadows, and FX is ready to feed that appetite by setting up the series for a fourth season. Our thanks to the extraordinary job by the creative team, cast and crew who keep making a great show better each season.”

A spin-off from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s horror-comedy mockumentary film of the same title, What We Do in the Shadows centers on

three vampires who live together: Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the former two are husband and wife. Also living with them is a fourth vampire named Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), who’s an “energy vampire.” Instead of blood, he sucks the energy out of his victims by boring them to death with mundane anecdotes and bad jokes. The office is his feeding ground, but his powers also work on his vampire roomies.

Here’s the synopsis for season 3:

After the shocking season two finale, we find the housemates in a panic about what to do with Guillermo after discovering that he is a vampire killer. This season, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms and supernatural curiosities galore. Plus, Colin Robinson is turning 100. And Nandor, faced with his own eternal-life crisis, tries to inject his life with more meaning.

What We Do in the Shadows stars Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, and Mark Proksch.

Clement and Waititi are executive producers on the show, along with Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, Stefani Robinson, and showrunner Paul Simms.

I’m behind on this show, but I intend to catch up on it because it sounds like it’s a lot of fun.
