Before New Zealand’s hottest breakout filmmaker became a household name with the release of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, Taika Waititi, along with co-writer and co-director Jemaine Clement, brought the world a film called What We Do in the Shadows. This immensely witty and entertaining horror-comedy mockumentary focused on the lives of a group of vampire roommates trying their best to acclimate in a modern society, despite their affliction and everything that comes along with it.

Last year, FX announced that the film would be adapted for the small screen and would make its 10-episode debut on the television network in 2019. Interestingly enough, this will not be the first spinoff from the original film, as another television series called Wellington Paranormal premiered back in July of last year with Waititi and Clement producing.

Although talks of the pair reuniting for We’re Wolves, a spinoff-sequel to the 2014 cult hit, continue, they remains optimistic that the film is still in the cards. During the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Waititi and Clement offered an update on their plans and setbacks in saying, “We always had plans to make another movie, but other things, Thor, got in the way, of our plans to make a werewolf movie and we keep talking about that.”

This trailer release comes after FX previously revealed several short teasers over the past few months, highlighting some of the show's comedy elements that fall very much in line with the style of the movie. What We Do in the Shadows will premiere on March 27th, 2019 on FX.
