'What We Do In The Shadows' Season 4 Teaser: The Vamps Return In July

It’s easy to get cynical about the glut of movies being adapted into TV series because of the Age Of Content and the surplus of streamers who need series and, well, “content.” However, if there’s one series that’s really flourished and come into its own as its own thing is FX’s version of “What We Do In The Shadows.” Based on the 2014 film created by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, the series, like the movie, is a mockumentary-style comedy that parodies things like “An Interview With The Vampire” The show also attempts to explore other versions of monster lore within the universe, but there’s an excellent character-driven emotional quality to the series too and just how hilariously petulant and immature all the vampires are.

It’s a big day for ‘Shadows.’ FX has not only released a new teaser trailer for season four coming this summer, but it’s also renewed the series for seasons five and six. The new teaser gives us a glimpse into an exciting party sequence that skews in the realm of a rave.

The series boasts an impressive comedic cast, including Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Mark Proksch, Harvey Guillén, and Kristen Schaal. Stefani Robinson, Paul Simms, and Ayo Edebiri (“Big Mouth”) are part of the show’s writing team working on this season’s episodes. Here’s the season four synopsis:
