What We Do In The Shadows Season 3: Release Date, Cast and Plot

What We Do in the Shadows is an American mockumentary comedy horror television series. The show was created by Jemaine Clement. It first premiered on March 27, 2019, on FX Network. The second television series in the franchise was based on the renowned 2014 movie of the same name written by Clement and Taika Waititi. 


The series revolves around the story of four vampire roommates located on Staten Island. After gaining massive success for its previous two seasons. Now fans are excited to know more about What We Do In The Shadows Season 3 with the hope that the series will return with more new seasons in the future.


In the previous season, it ended with a major cliffhanger. Will the series season 3 continue the story where the second season left off? We’ll have to wait and see about that. 


Are we getting What We Do In The Shadows Season 3?


100 percent yes! We’re not only getting a new season but we have a release date for What We Do In The Shadows Season 3. Excited much? We bet you are!


Filming was scheduled to begin in February 2021, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, filming was delayed. According to SyFy, production has since been halted to later in the year.


Fret not! We’re still getting a season 3— showrunner Paul Simms (via Deadline) in February said that the cast and crew have completed table reads for “nine of the ten scripts now,” so filming won’t be delayed for too long.


What We Do In The Shadows Season 3 Release Date


The series season 3 will air on FX on Thursday 2nd September with two new episodes.


Legendary guest star Mark Hamill tweeted to share the great news, adding: “Everyone’s favourite undead roommates will live on for a 3rd season!”


Sadly, we don’t have an official air date for UK fans. Keeping that in mind, we expect that What We Do In The Shadows season three will land on BBC Two in the UK most probably by November-ish 2021. 


What We Do In The Shadows Season 3 cast: Who’s in it? 


We’re expected to see Kavyan Novak (as Nandor the Relentless), Matt Berry (as Laszlo Cravensworth), Natasia Demetriou (as Nadja), Harvey Guillen (as Guillermo De la Cruz) Mark Proksch (as Colin Robinson), Doug Jones (as Baron Afanas), Veronika Slowikowska (as Shanice) return for What We Do In The Shadows season 3.


However, FX has not yet revealed a potential line-up of guest stars who will be appearing on the series’ third season. Hopefully, we get to see Jake McDorman as Jeff Suckler, who was reincarnated as Nadja’s ex-lover Gregor. In season two, he was beheaded by Laszlo and he had to return as a ghost.


Showrunner Paul Simms also teased during the show’s PaleyFest panel in March that there’ll be a secret character joining the show. He added, “And it’s not Nick Kroll (Simon the Devious), but someone we all know and love.”


Hopefully, we will also get to see Simon the Devious (played by Nick Kroll) as well as Mark Hamill (who played Jim the Vampire) return for the third season. 


What We Do In The Shadows Season 3 plot


For those of you who have binge-watched every episode, this sure is a huge reveal, guess what? In Season 3, they’re bringing in the gargoyles. Yikes!


Robinson (via virtual PaleyFest Panel) said that they have “plans for the show to go into completely different directions.”
