In May of 2020, it was announced that FX’s What We Do in the Shadows will be getting a third season. Season 3 started pre-production back in August of this year, as per my tweet, though it ended up being halted for unknown reasons. What We Do in the Shadows season 3 is set to start pre-production again this month, to prepare for a January production start date. According to the IATSE, production on season 3 is set to start on the 25th of January, 2021. It is set to wrap up on the 19th of April in the same year.
What We Do in the Shadows is a mockumentary comedy horror series created by Jemaine Clement that premiered March 27, 2019, on FX. It is based on the 2014 film of the same name, written by Clement and Taika Waititi. You can read the synopsis below:
