Since its debut in 2019, the program has captivated occult enthusiasts with its charm and zany tale, and with season 4 recently concluding on a cliffhanger, let’s just say we’re already itching for more. The mockumentary horror series, set in modern-day Staten Island, follows the lives of vampire roommates Nadja, Laszlo, Nandor, and Colin, as well as their ‘human’ buddy Guillermo.
We witnessed the team dabble in blood-filled nightclubs, arrange a full-fledged wedding, and Guillermo even take matters into his own hands to fulfill his long-held desire to become a vampire.
Will Guillermo ultimately shift into a night creature? What will happen next to the Vampiric gang? And what does the Vampiric Counsel have to say about all of this? We are here to solve all of your pressing questions. We’ve got all you need to know about What We Do in the Shadows season 5 release date, plot, actors, and more.
What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Expected Release Date
So there’s good news and bad news for all you occultists. There has been no official statement concerning the release date of What We Do in the Shadows season 5, but we do know that the next installment is on its way!
FX announced on July 12, 2022, that everyone’s favorite vampire TV show, True Blood, had been renewed for seasons 5 and 6. Season 5 of What We Do in the Shadows has already begun production, despite the fact that season 4 very recently concluded on September 6, 2022.
Because production has already begun, and because there is always a year-long hiatus between seasons, we believe FX will place a wooden stake in a 2023 time slot. More information will most likely be released in early to mid-2023… So keep tuned for more information.
What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Cast
Despite the early renewal, FX has not revealed which characters will return for Season 5, but the Season 4 cast included: Kayvan Novak (Nandor the Relentless), Natasia Demetriou (Nadja of Antipaxos), Matt Berry (Laszlo Cravensworth), Mark Proksch (Colin Robinson), and Harvey Guillén (Guillermo de la Cruz).
There will be plenty more surprise celebrity guests as well. So far, the series has featured cameos from Tilda Swinton, Evan Rachel Wood, Fred Armisen, Craig Robinson, Mark Hamill, Nick Kroll, Kristen Schaal, Wesley Snipes, Danny Trejo, Vanessa Bayer, Benedict Wong, Haley Joel Osment, Cree Summer.
What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Plot
The events of the Season 4 finale are expected to set up another adventure for the Staten Island undead, with future chapters already announced. Recent episodes have mostly focused on Colin, who has progressed from a newborn to an adolescent throughout the course of the season. That growth spurt hampered his nightclub act, as Laszlo has done his best to protect him from becoming dull, casting doubt on his future.
Meanwhile, Nadja’s nightclub is in jeopardy after losing its primary activity, and a decision on whether to close the business could be made soon. The conclusion will also likely address Nandor and Guillermo’s current feud, which involves the former transforming Marwa into a carbon duplicate of the latter’s partner in order to spice up his marriage.
There will be plenty more laughter ahead. In August, co-showrunner Stefani Robinson told The Hollywood Reporter that their pitch sessions often consist of “a bunch of ridiculous concepts and anecdotes.”
“Once we start constructing the season and figuring out the stories we want to tell, those pitches emerge victorious,” she continued, “in the sense that we can build a richer emotional arc around them.” Co-showrunner Paul Simms also quipped that coming up with new and creative tales is a “continuous issue.”
“These characters have been around for hundreds of years — they don’t need to do anything,” he explained. “The most difficult element is identifying jeopardy and stuff they want.” They’ve had essentially no ambitions for the past 200 years.”
