What We Do in the Shadows Season 3 set for November UK debut

Season 3 of the What We Do in the Shadows TV series finally has a confirmed UK air date, with the show set to premiere once more on BBC Two this November.
Based on the mockumentary horror comedy film of the same name, the new series tells the story of three vampire roommates born during different eras, who have to adapt to modern times as they attempt to survive the New World on Staten Island.
The self-appointed leader of the group is Nandor The Relentless (Kayvan Novak), a great warrior and conqueror from the Ottoman Empire, who has taken the helm of the group despite many of his Old World tactics resulting in what some might politely refer to as bupkis. British vampire Laszlo (Matt Berry) is a bit of a rogue and a lover of mischief and a great soirée, but not as much as he loves seeing Nandor fail miserably in every attempt. And then there’s Nadja (Natasia Demetriou): the seductress, the temptress, the vampiric Bonnie to Laszlo’s Clyde. Her wisdom and provocative tales from times past allow us insight into the many ups and downs of living an immortal life.
Also cohabiting in the vampire household is Guillermo (Harvey Guillén), Nandor’s familiar (aka servant/protector during the daylight hours), who wants nothing more than to be made a real vampire just like his master. Also lurking about is Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), an energy vampire and day-walker of sorts – he feasts on humans, but not on their blood.
All of the main cast will be back for the third run, with possible other returning names ranging from Craig Robinson as Claude, the leader of a vampire hunting group, Mark Hamill as Jim, a vamp with a grudge against Laszlo, and Benedict Wong as Wallace, a necromancer from Manchester, to even the star-studded members of the Vampiric Council (which include Tilda Swinton, Danny Trejo and Wesley Snipes). What we do know is that Season will feature gargoyles and will likely be as hilarious as ever.
You can see it in full on 2nd November, when it premieres at 10.05pm BBC Two, with the whole box set then on BBC iPlayer. Here’s a trailer:
