What We Do in the Shadows Image

As far as comedies go, the Taika Watiti – who is currently busy directing Thor: Ragnarok for Marvel – film What We Do In The Shadows was one of the best in 2015. The success of that film sparked talks of a possible sequel, which was then confirmed to be true earlier this year when it was announced that it would be followed up by We’re Wolves starring Rhys Darby and Stuart Rutherford. Now the world of What We Do In The Shadows is about to get a little bigger as it has been confirmed that it will also be getting a TV spinoff called Paranormal Event Response Unit. More on the story below.

New Zealand On Air (NZOA) confirmed the news to Radio New Zealand. According to the report, the six-episode spinoff will be funded for $1.4 million and was conceived by Waititi and What We Do In The Shadows co-star Jemaine Clement.

Released in 2014, What We Do In The Shadows followed three vampires who welcomed in a new hipster vampire to their New Zealand apartment and helped him adjust to living the life of the undead. They would encounter various other forms of supernatural beings like werewolves. But instead of following vampires and werewolves, the TV show will center on the two police officers Mike and Karen (Karen O’Leary and Mike Minogue in the movie, respectively) as they protect people “from supernatural phenomena in their own police reality series.”

It’s not clear if the TV series will make its way from New Zealand to other countries. But I could see the show being broadcast on possibly on a cable channel or even Netflix. This wouldn’t be the first time that Waititi or Clement have worked on a television show, as the two have collaborated on the HBO hit comedy Flight of the Conchords.

“We are delighted that Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi are bringing their talents to smaller screens in Paranormal Event Response Unit,” said NZOA’s chief executive Jane Wrightson in a statement.

No word yet on when it will air, but we will keep you up to date on the progress of Paranormal Event Response Unit.
