What We Do in the Shadows has returned, and the dysfunctional household has gone back to basics for the new season.
Season four was a turning point for the vampires in many ways. Nadja took a considerable risk and opened her dream nightclub, inspired by the movie Blade: Trinity. Meanwhile, Laszlo decided to take care of baby Colin Robinson and wholeheartedly embraced the role of a father. Important decisions were also made by Nandor, who chose to marry his centuries-old concubine, now returned to the world of the living.
As usual, the vampires’ plans did not unfold as expected. The poorly managed nightclub went bankrupt, Colin grew up and forgot about Laszlo, and Nandor’s wife started to irritate him. Additionally, Guillermo, tired of his situation, decided to become a vampire on his terms.
In season 5, the bloodsuckers from Staten Island will try to rebuild their existence from scratch, and attempt to experience human entertainment. A vital storyline will focus on Guillermo as a newly turned vampire and Colin’s electoral campaign, as he seems to have found a new way to drain people of their life force.
