Who is the cast of What We Do in the Shadows?
Based on Taika Waititi’s 2014 vampire mockumentary, What We Do in the Shadows follows three ancient vampires. The bloodsuckers live on Staten Island with their trusty familiar, Guillermo. The series stars Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen, Mark Proksch and Kristen Schaal.
“In Season 5, Nandor feels his familiar (and sometimes friend) Guillermo slipping away as he appears to be spending far more time with Laszlo, whose skills as a gentleman scientist are put to the test as he attempts to unravel the mystery of the stranger to solve and very secret changes that Guillermo is going through,” reads the summary. “Nadja, suffering the effects of a previously undiagnosed supernatural curse, reconnects with her family – or at least a family – from the Old Land. Colin is following in the footsteps of so many energy vampires before him by running for political office and The Guide is trying to figure out where she fits in as a relative newcomer to this tight-knit group that has known each other for centuries.”
The series was written and produced by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement. The executive producers are Clement, Waititi, Paul Simms, Stefani Robinson, Sam Johnson, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush. It is produced by FX Productions.
