What We Do in the Shadows Season 5: Expected release date, cast, plot and everything we know so far


The American mockumentary comic horror television series What We Do in the Shadows, produced by Jemaine Clement, debuted on FX on March 27, 2019.

The series has aired four seasons and was picked up for a fifth and sixth season before the fourth season’s debut.

At the conclusion of Season 4, Guillermo offers his friend Derek money taken from Nadja’s nightclub as a bribe to reveal his everlasting vampire power. Did it succeed? And how will Guillermo’s family respond to his decision to finally join the undead given their Van Helsing ancestry and animosity of vampires? The Guide and Nadja bid farewell to their vampire nightclub, which Nadja had burned down to get the insurance money. Of course, if she had initially purchased insurance, the plan could have worked out better. But the dramatic Nadja never lacks for desire or aspirations; in Season 5, look for her to discover new realms to conquer.
