The What We Do In The Shadows TV series will air in March in the US.
The highly anticipated spin-off of the cult comedy movie will air on FX in the US, with the BBC confirming that is has picked up the series for the UK.
The series revolves around a group of vampire housemates who have to navigate the modern world.
It stars Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou and Kayvan Novak, all 3 of whom are known for comedy work in the UK.
The BBC has the rights to the show thanks to a recent deal with FX, which allows it to broadcast shows like What We Do In The Shadows and recently Atlanta.
The official synopsis gives a glimpse as to what the series will revolve around.
“Much like the movie, the series follows three vampires who live together: Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), and Nandor (Kayvan Novak) — the former two are husband and wife. Also living with them is a fourth vampire named Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), who’s an “energy vampire.” Instead of blood, he sucks the energy out of his victims by boring them to death with mundane anecdotes and bad jokes. The office is his feeding ground, but his powers also work on his vampire roomies.
“The main action is put into motion when our central three vampires receive notice that an ancient leader vampire named the Baron is coming to pay them a visit from abroad, purportedly to see how conquering America is going.”
A new trailer accompanied the announcement, alongside some clips of the upcoming episodes.
