What We Do in the Shadows season 5 trailer: vampire comedy returns in July

A trailer has been released for What We Do in the Shadows season 5! New episodes reach FX and Hulu in July


The FX vampire comedy series What We Do in the Shadows returns to the airwaves for season 5 on July 13th – and with that date now less than a month away, a trailer for the new season has arrived online! You can check it out in the embed above.

Episodes of What We Do in the Shadows season 5 will be available to watch on the Hulu streaming service the day after they air on FX.

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 official synopsis for season 5: Nandor feels his familiar (and sometimes friend) Guillermo slipping away as he seems to be spending much more time with Laszlo, whose skills as a gentleman scientist are put to the test as he tries to solve the mystery of the strange and very secret changes Guillermo is going through. adja, suffering the effects of a previously-undiagnosed supernatural hex, reconnects with her family — or at least, a family — from the Old Country, Colin pursues the path of so many energy vampires before him by running for political office and The Guide tries to figure out where she fits in as the relative newcomer to this tightly-knit group who’ve known each other for centuries.

What We Do in the Shadows is executive produced by Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement, Paul Simms, Scott Rudin, Eli Bush, and Garrett Basch.

If you’re a super fan of What We Do in the Shadows, you’ll be glad to hear that you won’t have to worry about the fate of the show after season 5, because FX has already ordered a sixth season.
