What We Do In The Shadows Will Be Back For A Third Season

Still Living In The Shadows

One of Tripwire’s favourite TV shows, What We Do In The Shadows, is currently running its second season and The Hollywood Reporter has just announced it will be getting a third season. Here’s a few details from them…

The Disney-owned cable network has renewed its vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows for a third season. The pickup comes midway through a second season that has performed strongly for FX, with multi-platform ratings up substantially over the show’s first season in spring 2019.

“We’re incredibly happy that critics and audiences are all in on Shadows,” said Nick Grad, president original programming at FX. “Week in and week out, the producers, writers and our amazing cast continue to make one of the funniest and best comedy series on TV.”

Season two has averaged 462,000 viewers for initial airings, essentially even with the 467,000 viewers who watched first-season episodes the night they aired. That initial figure, however, represents only about 15 percent of the show’s full audience, as delayed and multi-platform viewing brings the total to 3.2 million, according to FX. That’s a 25 percent increase over season one.

What We Do in the Shadows is based on the 2014 feature film of the same name by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (who have reprised their roles from the movie in the show). The FX Productions comedy stars Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Matt Berry, Mark Proksch and Harvey Guillén.

Clement and Waititi executive produce with showrunner Paul Simms, Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush and Stefani Robinson.
