What We Do In The Shadows gets a third series

FX renews vampire comedy with Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak and Natasia Demetriou

Vampire house-share comedy  What We Do In The Shadows is to return for a third series.

America’s FX network has renewed the show midway through airing the second season, which is averaging a 25 per cent larger audience than the first.

The show, about four vampires who have ‘lived’ together for centuries on Staten Island, New York,  airs on BBC Two in the UK, and just last month the broadcaster snapped up the rights to the second series. 

It stars Brits Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak and Natasia Demetriou alongside Harvey Guillén and Mark Proksch and is based on Jermaine Clement and Taika Waititi’s 2014 feature film.

The second season also featured a guest spot from Star Wars’ Mark Hamill

Nick Grad, president of original programming for  FX Entertainment said: ‘We’re incredibly happy that critics and audiences are all in on Shadows. 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.’

Series one is still available in the UK on BBC iPlayer.
