Well this doesn’t suck: FX has renewed What We Do in the Shadows for a second season.
Airing Wednesdays at 10/9c, Season 1 of the acclaimed vampire comedy has four episodes remaining (landing the finale on May 29). Season 2 will debut in 2020; an episode count is not yet available.
“[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,” FX Original Programming president Nick Grad said in a statement.
In 2019 to date, What We Do in the Shadows ranks in the Top 5 among 34 cable comedy series, including in the Adults 18-49 demo and in total viewers. Across all platforms and airings, its first five episodes have averaged an audience of 2.81 million viewers.
This Wednesday’s episode promises “an extraordinary lineup of guest vampires” as Nandor (played by Kayvan Novak), Laszlo (Matt Berry) and Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) appear before an international vampire tribunal who gather to judge them for the death of Baron Afanas.
Are you fang-ful to get a second season of WWDITS?
this show is interesting. cant put my finger on it… do I like it? lol
Same here!!! Lol
Great news!! I loved the movie, and I’m starting to think I love the show and its vampire characters even more!
I really enjoy the crazy nonsense of this show.
I agree, so glad it has been renewed.
So much fun! The actors are great. This is great news
Really really tried to like it. Really…..
I have the same ambivalence that others do here, but I would rather have this show on than off. Give it some time to improve. I appreciate what they’re trying to do, but it never goes beyond a nod of the head in amusement than actual laughter. Still, as always, I travel hopefully.
Finally, they renewed something I really like! Who would have thunk it?
That was my first thought! It had to grow on me at first, but by episode 3 I was loving it. My favorite character is Nadia. I love her asides and narration so much! And – Poor Guillermo! LOL!
Really? Why? I had to force myself thru the 5 episodes I watched. Never saw the movie & I’m definitely NOT in the 18-49 demo so maybe that’s it.
You watched 5 episodes of a show you don’t like? I guess your claim of being in a demo with nothing to do tracks…
I’m 67 and love it!
Nandor and Guillermo are the reason I watch this show. Love them
Same here. What a pair, lol
Yes. Love those two. Also love my girl, Nadja.
It’s an insanely great comedy if you examine the intertextuality is draws upon. Take for example the scene where Nandor & Toby (werewolf) duel. It’s hilarious how it subverts the paradigm of the traditional American western that romanticizes one-on-one duels. It had me rolling when Nandor threw that chew toy off the balcony.
I record it and watched that scene about 4 times I laughed so hard!
Thank you for your expert commentary. Just reading about the chew toy over the balcony had me in stitches again!
Oh yes! Love this show so much ❤️
They improved on the movie. These characters are wonderfully funny. My favourite comedy since Schitt’s Creek finished it’s season.
They renew something stupid like this and when something good is on they cancel it. WTH.
What great thing did FX cancel…?
Sorry Matt. I meant in general. Not FX.
You do realize you can’t “generalize” renewals because a show cancelled/renewed on one channel has nothing to do with the fate of “good or bad” content on other channels..
Also this show rates well, stupid or not… this renewal was a no-brainer really.
It’s a no brainer show. Yeah that has to be it. What some people like to watch now.
95% on Rotten Tomatoes and solid ratings from the audience. Seem a lot of people disagree with your take, Connie. Sorry your favorite show got canceled, but don’t blame it on a critically acclaimed show that the audience loves.
Connie, maybe you shouldn’t come and crap on what others enjoy. I don’t recall doing that to you.
melellot. Don’t remember replying to you.
Well Connie, you just did.
Yeah, that was disappointing. Loved that show.
I love this show. It’s so silly.
I found myself the other day walking around and thinking in Matt Berry’s voice “BAT!” when I hit a queue of people.
This show has really grown on me. The last episode had me laughing all the way through. Then the animal control one was freaking hilarious. Only one episode had me questioning my interest in this. Anyway, I’m glad it got renewed. Hopefully, it can improve on some of its weaker moments and grow.
They did? 🤦♂️
That’s a great surprise! I didn’t know it had that big of an audience.
It has become one of my favorite new shows this year. Good to see it will be coming back.
There is stuff that doesn’t work with this show but there’s lots that works too..the cast is good..love Nandor and Guillermo. I never fail to laugh when they are together. My fav episode to date was when Laszlo was picked up by animal control..the chaos lol
I love it. I think that it’s the funniest thing on television.
Yay! I’m really liking this wired funny show. But I still haven’t seen the movie tho.
Watch the movie!
Is it ever coming to Hulu?
Probably after it finishes airing completely. It took them a minute to add Fargo and other FX shows
I love this crazy little show!
I love this show! It’s just so creative and strange.
I am so glad, the show is more hilarious than the movie was.
