Details on Season 2, Courtesy of FX:
“What We Do in the Shadows documents the nightly exploits of vampire roommates Nandor (Novak), Nadja (Demetriou), Laszlo (Berry) and Colin Robinson (Proksch) as they navigate the modern world of Staten Island with the help of their human familiar, Guillermo (Guillén).
Over the course of the second season, the vampires try to find their way in a world of human Super Bowl parties, internet trolls, an energy vampire who gets a promotion and becomes drunk on power and of course, all the ghosts, witches, necromancers, zombies and shadowy cloaked assassins who roam freely in the Tri-State area. Is Guillermo destined to be a vampire or a vampire hunter? Or maybe just a familiar for the rest of his life?
In the May 27th episode, ‘Collaboration,’ Nandor’s old familiar from the 1970s returns to Staten Island, Guillermo leaves to serve a new master, and Nadja and Lazslo revive their musical act.”
