‘What We Do in the Shadows’ Confirmed to End on Season 6

In an unfortunate development for fans, the critically appreciated comedy-horror series What We Do in the Shadows is set to conclude with its upcoming sixth season. A blend of humor and chills, the show broke the news first on Vulture, leaving its audience saddened and reminiscent of its glorious start back in 2019.

Employing a mockumentary style What We Do in the Shadows offers an insightful yet hilarious glimpse into the night-time life of four vampires cohabitating for centuries in Staten Island. The series is an adaptation of its namesake film released in 2014, created by comedy connoisseurs Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi.

From the ensemble, we have the self-proclaimed leader Nandor the Relentless, a once-formidable warrior from the Ottoman Empire. Next in line is the charming Laszlo, a British vampire who enjoys causing mischief and seeing Nandor flop. Interestingly, it’s not only human blood that Colin Robinson, an energy vampire, and day-walker thirsts for, he also drains human energy.

The show made its debut on FX back in March 2019 under Jemaine Clement’s creative direction. The lead roles are held by Kayvan Novak as Nandor the Relentless, Matt Berry as Leslie “Laszlo” Cravensworth, Natasia Demetriou as Nadja of Antipaxos, Harvey Guillén as Guillermo de la Cruz, Mark Proksch as Colin Robinson, and Kristen Schaal as The Guide.

Talking about its success and viewer reception, season five of What We Do in the Shadows has earned rave reviews. The show enjoys a strong mark of 97% on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes, a testament to its substantial writing and performance quality.

During its run, the series has bagged numerous awards and nominations, including 21 Emmy Awards nods for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2020 and 2022. As we bid adieu to What We Do in the Shadows in its upcoming sixth season, we can expect nothing less than a spectacular grand finale.

The announcement of the sixth season’s release date is eagerly awaited. In the meantime, we recommend you catch up and browse through HITPLAY’s curated movie/tv show collections, where you can find many other critically acclaimed shows to watch.
