What We Do In The Shadows walks again

Second series for Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry and Natasia Demetriou's vampire comedy

Vampire comedy series What We Do In The Shadows has been renewed for a second series.

Based on Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement's 2014 movie, the show comes to BBC Two on May 19. But already the FX channel, which commissioned the series in the US, has ordered a second run.

The mockumentary stars Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry and Natasia Demetriou as vampires sharing a house in Staten Island, New York

Novak plays Nandor the Relentless, a vampire who was once a soldier of the Ottoman Empire who regards himself as the leader of the group; Berry is Laszlo Cravensworth, an English nobleman vampire bitten by Demetiou’s Romani vampire Nadja, who is now his wife – although she is also seeing a human she believes is the reincarnation of her last lover, whom she accidentally decapitated

They share a house with  Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) Nandor's ‘familiar’, or servant, desperate to become a vampire, and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) an ‘energy vampire’ able to go out in the daytime.

Guest stars have included comics Anthony Atamanuik, Arj Barker and Nick Kroll 

Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks, said: ‘Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and [executive producer] Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of Shadows fans by adapting the cult classic for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans.’

Episode seven of the ten-part first series airs in the US tonight, and when the show launches on BBC Two later this month it will be as part of a double comedy bill with Romesh Ranganathan’s topical entertainment show The Ranganation.
