Based on the 2014 comedy movie by Clement and Taika Waititi, the mockumentary TV series What We Do in the Shadows has continually blown critics and vampire fans away since its 2019 release. Currently, every installment of the show holds over 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, with the last chapter, season 3, earning 100 percent and teasing us all with that enthralling cliffhanger. Needless to say, the thirst for more content is real, and anticipation is sky-high for news about the What We Do in the Shadows season 4 release date.
In modern-day Staten Island, a documentary crew follows Nadja, Laszlo, Nandor, Colin, and Guillermo, a human who used to live with them but no longer does. As the cameras follow the crew of immortals, we see how the undead roommates are always getting into trouble. In the last season of the show, Colin’s energy vampire past was revealed, and Nandor finally promised to turn Guillermo into a vampire. Fans are now dying to know what comes next for America’s funniest spooks after that shocking ending.
FX has confirmed that there will be a fourth season of What We Do in the Shadows, so we’ve put together all the information you need to watch it. The Digital Fix has done its hunting to find out everything you need to know about the movie, including when it will come out, what it will be about, who will be in it, and more.
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS SEASON 4 RELEASE DATE
Good news for fans of vampires! The fourth season of What We Do in the Shadows will come out on July 12, 2022.
FX first said that the show would be back for a fourth season before season 3 even started airing in 2021. And just recently, the network announced on Twitter that the next chapter will be out in a few months.
With this in mind, it makes sense that fans can expect to see a trailer soon since there will be a lot of marketing for the series as July gets closer. Make sure to check this page often, as we’ll let you know about any changes.
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS SEASON 4 PLOT
Even though we don’t have an official plot summary for What We Do in the Shadows season 4, we already have a pretty good idea of what will happen based on interviews with the cast and crew and the shocking end of season 3.
At the end of season 3, everyone went their own way. Laszlo and Nadja were going to England, while Nandor and Guillermo were going to travel the world. But we were left with a cliffhanger when Laszlo locked Guillermo in his coffin and sent the two of them to England while he stayed in Staten Island.
The big question of Season 3 was where energy vampires come from. The answer came when Laszlo decided to stay in America to care for a baby Colin who had been thought to be dead.
So, Guillermo and Nadja are going to England, Nandor is waiting alone at the train station, and Laszlo and baby Colin are on Staten Island. Nadja is likely to be very angry in Season 4 because Laszlo left her alone. Guillermo will probably be dying to get back to his master, who is probably furious that he can’t find his loyal dog (it looks like Guillermo’s dreams of becoming a vampire have been crushed yet again).
There are also questions about more energy vampires. In the third season, Colin was obsessed with finding out where he came from, but he died before he got a clear answer. But now that baby Colin is here, there are a lot of stories and funny things to look forward to.
In the next part of the series, we’ll meet Guillermo’s family, as well as our main group. In an interview with Deadline, Paul Simms, one of the show’s executive producers, confirmed that we’ll learn more about the relatives of Nandor’s familiar and his Van Helsing vampire hunter roots.
In Season 4, Episode 4, you’ll meet Guillermo’s whole family, which makes him very nervous. “We’ll find out that if he has Van Helsing DNA, the rest of his family does too, even if they don’t know it,” Simms said. “We’ll also find out in Season 4 how Guillermo is trying to make up for the fact that he spent ten years of his life helping vampires and forgot about his family and his responsibilities to them.
Along with these stories, season 4 will also introduce us to more supernatural beings we haven’t seen before. At New York Comic Con, Simms said, “There’s an episode we’re going to shoot in Season 4 that Yana [Gorskaya] is directing, and it’s probably the most ambitious episode we’ve done in terms of showing other supernatural creatures.”
So far, no hints have been given about what these strange beings are. So far, we’ve seen werewolves, sirens, zombies, ghosts, gargoyles, witches, and Babadooks in What We Do in the Shadows. We’re curious to see what other nightmare creatures will be in the spotlight next.
WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS SEASON 4 CAST
Our central Staten Island crew is all coming back for the new season, which shouldn’t be a surprise. Natassia Demetriou will play Nadja again, and Matt Berry will play Nadja’s husband, Laszlo.
Kayvan Novak will play Nandor again, and Harvey Guillén will play Guillermo, who used to be Nandor’s friend but now hunts vampires. Even Mark Proksch is coming back for season 4 of What We Do in the Shadows to play Colin, who has just been born.
The big question raised by Mark Proksch’s return is, “How quickly do energy vampires grow up?” Will we get to see him as an adult again, or will we soon see a baby vampire with Proksch’s voice?
In an interview with Deadline, Proksch hinted that a lot of his work on filming this season “will be done separately on green screen and other effects.” So, as you might expect, we’re interested to see how the actor will play the same part in season 4.
Here is the List of the Confirmed Cast of What We Do in the Shadows Season 4
- Natasia Demetriou (as Nadja)
- Matt Berry (as Lazlo)
- Kayvan Novak (as Nandor)
- Harvey Guillén (as Guillermo)
- Mark Proksch (as Colin)
At the moment, we still don’t know who will play Guillermo’s new family members. There are also no hints about which big stars will appear in the new season.
Mark Hamill from Star Wars, Tilda Swinton from the MCU, and Donal Logue from Blade have all been on What We Do in the Shadows in the past. You can be sure that another A-list actor will stop by the show to have some fun with the dead. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear more about the cast.
WHERE CAN I WATCH WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS SEASON 4?
Since What We Do in the Shadows is made by FX, you’ll likely be able to watch it on Hulu once it comes out in the US. Fans in the UK can expect the new episode to be available on BBC iPlayer, the same way that season 3 was.
But these platforms are just educated guesses for now because they haven’t been confirmed. Make sure to save this page because we’ll be adding to it as we learn more. In the meantime, you can watch all three seasons of What We Do in the Shadows on Hulu in the US. If you live in the UK, you can watch the first two seasons on Disney Plus and the third season on BBC iPlayer.
And that’s everything we know about season 4 of What We Do in the Shadows. Here is our list of the best zombie movies and monster movies of all time if you want to watch more movies about the dead and the strange.
