Prepare yourselves for another outrageous and comical adventure as “What We Do in the Shadows” takes absurdity and silliness to new heights in its upcoming season. The mischievous vampires of Staten Island find themselves grappling with a fresh array of problems that promise to entertain and delight viewers.
In the nail-biting cliffhanger ending of season four, Guillermo (played by Harvey Guillén) bravely approached his friend Derek and requested to be turned into a vampire. However, as expected in this wickedly funny world, things didn’t exactly go according to plan. To witness the hilarious outcome, you’ll have to watch it unfold for yourself.
Let’s delve into the current predicaments of our beloved characters. Guillermo de la Cruz, after being strung along by his master Nandor the Relentless for over a decade, finds himself struggling with the aftermath of his unsuccessful transformation attempt. Meanwhile, Colin Robinson, the energy vampire extraordinaire portrayed by Mark Proksch, surprises everyone by throwing himself into the political arena.
Laszlo Cravensworth, portrayed by the incomparable Matt Berry, takes it upon himself to enhance Guillermo’s vampiric abilities, resulting in a flurry of unexpected and side-splitting consequences. The ever-reliable Guide (Kirsten Schaal) and the delightfully unpredictable Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) continue to add their own brand of chaos and hilarity to the mix.
With such a rich tapestry of characters and storylines, “What We Do in the Shadows” has a high bar to meet, but the teaser trailer suggests that fans are in for a treat with the new season. Of particular intrigue is the unlikely friendship blossoming between Guillermo and Laszlo. Could this be the season where Nandor finally realizes his deeper feelings for Guillermo? Perhaps, just maybe, dreams do come true for die-hard vampire fans.
Mark your calendars for July 13 when “What We Do in the Shadows” premieres on FX. If you can’t catch it on television, don’t fret; the show will also be available to stream on Hulu. Get ready to immerse yourself in a world where hilarity, absurdity, and supernatural shenanigans collide, promising an unforgettable and laughter-filled experience.
