WATCH: What We Do In The Shadows spin-off series Wellington Paranormal gets first teaser

June 30th, 2018 by Marc Comments

The universe of What We Do In The Shadows has officially begun expanding… and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.

The first teaser has dropped for Wellington Paranormal, a new series created by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement which is a spin-off from What We Do In The Shadows.

The movie became an overnight cult classic, following vampire housemates (Clement, Waititi and Jonathan Brugh) trying to survive among the mere mortals of Wellington.

Wellington Paranormal will follow police officers Mike Minogue and Karen O’Leary as they hunt out ghosts, werewolves and demonic possessions. The pair is under the watchful eye of Sergeant Maaka Pohatu, who performs in Modern Māori Quartet during the day. Cori Gonzalez-Macuer’s Nick from the original film is also set to feature in the TV show. Clement and Waititi are also expected to reprise their roles as vampires Vladislav and Viago.

The new series will consist of six 30-minute episodes. They will air on TVNZ 2 in New Zealand and begins on 11th July. Hopefully it will make its way to the UK shortly after.

If that’s not enough, FX has ordered the first season of What We Do in the Shadows, a half-hour comedy series based on the movie with the 10-episode first season set for Spring 2019.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
