In a statement, FX’s Original Programming president Nick Grad said:

“[Executive producers] Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of Shadows fans by adapting the cult classic [movie] for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans.  We also want to thank the rest of the creative team, including Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush, and the incredible cast and crew for delivering such a fun and original series, and we look forward to working with them all on season two.”

This mockumentary follows the mundane exploits of Nandor (played by Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry) and Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), three ancient vampires living in modern-day New York City.  The series also stars Harvey Guillén as Guillermo, Nandor’s familiar, and Mark Proksch as Colin Robinson, an annoying energy vampire that lives with the others and pays for their lifestyle.

‘What We Do in the Shadows’ is based on Clement and Waititi’s 2014 theatrical film if the same name.  The FX series ranks in the top five of comedy series on cable, regularly drawing an average of 2.8 million viewers.  Clement directed three of the first five episodes, while Waititi helmed the pilot and tomorrow night’s episode, “The Trial” and the Season 1 finale, “Ancestry” which airs on May 29.

“The Trial” promises “an extraordinary lineup of guest vampires” as Nandor, Laszlo, and Nadja appear before an international vampire tribunal who gather to judge them for the death of Baron Afanas (Doug Jones).
