What is What We Do in the Shadows about?

While Jemaine Clement had already found international success with his comedy band and TV show Flight of the Conchords, What We Do in the Shadows is responsible for putting Taika Waititi on the map. The breakout New Zealand comedy is a mockumentary/comedy about a Vampire share house in Wellington, New Zealand. Its irreverent humour latched onto vampire lore and dragged it into the mundane 21st century.

The TV adaption of What We Do in the Shadows is a close reflection of the movie, except it follows the exploits of three vampires in Staten Island: Nandor the Relentless, Nadja, and Laszlo Cravensworth, as well as their energy-sucking roommate Colin Robinson, and Nandor’s familiar (human vampire servant), Guillermo.

What We Do in the Shadows succeeds where so many U.S. comedy adaptation have failed thanks to creator Jemaine Clements’ oversight, the brilliant performances of its three leads, and its expansion of the film’s lore and universe. The TV series treads fairly similar ground at certain points, but it’s by no means a scene-for-scene remake (like the first season of The Office).

There’s also an outrageous number of cameos from some of Hollywood’s most famous vampires.

Should you watch the movie before watching the TV show?

Not necessarily. There are very few direct connections between the TV show and the movies, bar some fun cameos towards the end of season 1. Still, the movie is a comedy-horror all-timer, and you’d be remiss to pass it up. The What We Do in the Shadows film is also available via Binge and Foxtel.

How long is What We Do in the Shadows?

There are currently two seasons of What We Do in the Shadows and 20 episodes in total. Each episode is roughly 22 to 30 minutes long, so it’s a short, sharp show to sink your teeth into.

Now that you know, here are your next steps.
