What We Do in the Shadows: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: Delightfully absurd and ridiculously fun, What We Do in the Shadows expands on the film's vampiric lore and finds fresh perspective in its charming, off-kilter cast to create a mockumentary series worth sinking your teeth into.

Critic Reviews for What We Do in the Shadows Season 1

All Critics (64) | Top Critics (19)

With all the riches of the vampire myth in literature, folklore, art and cinema to plunder, What We Do In The Shadows is visually arresting, smart and witty.

What We Do in the Shadows works. It truly, pardon the pun, doesn't suck.

I've seen the first batch of episodes of this series. And they're all so clever and genuinely amusing.

It seems to me that What We Do in the Shadows has more up its sleeve than just re-creating the vibe of the original.

Top Critic

The four leads are great, the jokes crisp and fast and funny, and the visual effects are employed just as effectively as in the movie, folded seamlessly into the handheld-camera aesthetic so they seem all the more uncanny.

Top Critic

It fits perfectly into FX's off-kilter sense of humor, and actually gets a little funnier with each episode.

Mar 26, 2019 | Full Review…

Instead of tortured, pouting True Blood-style vampires, this lot are like the dork-undead that Nosferatu might have met on holiday, and then regretted exchanging numbers with.

Jun 3, 2019 | Full Review…

FX's breakout comedy is darkly funny and often surprising, but most of all, it's deeply unnerving.

May 29, 2019 | Full Review…

A delirious feast of vampire comedy with nothing to envy its predecessor. [Full Review in Spanish]

May 19, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

All the necessary components are there, but fails to capture the magical chemistry of its source material nor conjure a unique experience of its own.

Audience Reviews for What We Do in the Shadows: Season 1

By far one of the funniest & original series I have viewed in a long time!! My only criticism is that there is simply not enough of it! Supported by a fantastic cast & crew, alongside some incredibly creative writing, this show deserves to linger in the shadows for years to come!!

Great continuation of the film. It explores and expands upon the universe. They can sustain the comedy throughout the entire season and the characters are all interesting and different. The concepts are well executed and the dialogues are hilarious. The actors do a spectacular job. I hope we get plenty more seasons.

so much yes to this

I love it... I was worried it wouldn't live up to the film, but it doesn't disappoint.

Best comedy since The Office

Funny ,crazy and cool. Great characters in such a great comedy.

10 times better than the mockumentary it spawns from. I didnt like the film, it was boring and not very funny. This show is the tits.

One of the funniest shows I've ever watched!!!!!

Great show, just finished the first season. I only wish I could also watch Wellington Paranormal so I'd have the full What We Do in the Shadows experience!

So funny. Watched the entire series in one sitting. Great concept and writing
