One of the finest comedies currently on air is returning for a third season later this year, and if you’re a US reader then you now know when to mark your calendars: September 2nd will see the first two new What We Do in the Shadows episodes in over a year premiere on FX.
Here’s FX on what Season 3 has in store…
“After the shocking season two finale, we find the housemates in a panic about what to do with Guillermo after discovering that he is a vampire killer. This season, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms and supernatural curiosities galore. Plus, Colin Robinson is turning 100. And Nandor, faced with his own eternal-life crisis, tries to inject his life with more meaning. Will he find love or is he destined to be an immortal bachelor with 37 ex-wives?”
Sounds great! But what about viewers in the UK, you ask. Will the BBC, in their infinite wisdom, hold the entire series back until its last episode has aired in the States, just like they did with Season 1 and 2? We don’t have the luxury of an answer sadly, so unfortunately we’ll have to wait until the BBC sees fit to disclose such things. And as we all know, disclosing things when appropriate isn’t exactly the broadcaster’s forte. Ahem. As Disney now owns FX, let’s hope the show migrates over to Disney+ so fans around the world can share the fun at the same time (how novel!) without having to duck spoilers on Twitter for two months.
