The vampires are coming for New York.
In the full trailer for What We Do in the Shadows, the 10-episode FX series based on the film of the same name, four vampires must overcome their differences to unite under a single goal: domination of the New World. After all, that's what they agreed to do when they arrived in Staten Island over a hundred years ago.
The series will follow Nandor the Relentless, "a great warrior and conqueror from the Ottoman Empire, who has taken the helm of the group despite many of his Old World tactics resulting in what some might politely refer to as bupkis"; Laszlo, "a bit of a rogue and a dandy and a fop"; Nadja, "the seductress, the temptress, the vampiric Bonnie to Laszlo’s Clyde"; Nandor's familiar Guillermo, "who wants nothing more than to be made a real vampire"; and Colin Robinson, "an energy vampire and day-walker of sorts." Robinson, of course, is a heretofore unseen type of vampire, who can go outside during the day and feasts on energy instead of blood.
According to the series description,
After an unexpected visit from their dark lord and leader, “Baron Afanas,” the vampires are reminded of what they were initially tasked with upon their arrival in Staten Island over a hundred years ago – total and complete domination of the New World. But what exactly is the best way to go about achieving said domination? Our vérité camera crew follows along as the vampires set out to answer this query.
Arriving Wednesday, March 27 at 10 pm ET/PT on FX, What We Do in the Shadows stars Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Matt Berry, Harvey Guillen and Doug Jones. Taika Waititi will direct the series and co-produce alongside Jemaine Clement, Scott Rudin, Paul Simms and Garrett Basch.
