A newly released teaser trailer for season 3 of FX’s What We Do in the Shadows highlights the vampires being exposed to VR technology.
A newly released teaser for What We Do in the Shadows season 3 exposes the vampires to VR technology. The third season, set to premiere on September 2, continues to explore the life of three vampires, an energy vampire, in addition to a vampire’s former familiar, living on modern day Staten Island. Actor Harvey Guillén, known for portraying Guillermo De la Cruz, has stated that season 3 picks up right after the cliffhanger ending of the series second season.
During the season 2 finale, Guillermo abandoned his post as Nandor’s familiar to return home. Lazlo, Nadja and Nandor fall victim to a trap set by the Vampiric Council at the Nouveau Théâtre des Vampires, forcing Guillermo to step in and reveal his vampire hinting abilities to his former masters. The ending was not only shocking, but also stratifying in terms of seeing Guillermo’s growth as a character throughout the series. Now that the truth has been revealed, it is unclear how the dynamic of the household and the characters’ relationships will be impacted.
In a teaser to promote season 3, What We Do in the Shadows explores what would happen if the Vampires were exposed to VR technology. The teaser, released by FX Networks, features Nandor wearing a VR headset in order to experience walking through a park on a sunny day. Lazlo, Guillermo and Collin Robinson watch as Nandor enjoys the view while walking face first into a wall. Check out the teaser bellow:
From the teaser, it is clear that the house will continue to face challenges while attempting to adapt to the ways of the modern era. The new season also promises to share the vampires facing off against greater mystical threats, such as a mysterious Siren, hellhounds and gargoyles. Absent from the trailer is any reference to the Vampiric Council, how much remains of it after Guillermo’s attack and how they will attempt to bring the housemates to justice for their supposed crimes.
The inclusion of Guillermo in the background is interesting, as it suggests the character may have returned to live in the house. Whether this is in order to further protect the vampires from outside threats, or perhaps to protect the vampires from themselves is unknown. This protection is of course a double edge sword, as the more he protects them, the more the Vampiric Council may blame them for his actions.
Although it is unclear what direction What We Do in the Shadows season 3 will take, the universe the characters inhabit continues to expand. With CW releasing an action adventure show based on the characters from the original film “What We Do in the Shadows,” created by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, called Wellington Paranormal, there are now more opportunities to explore the world beyond Staten Island and vampires. As long as they continue to play to their characters, the new season should have no problem entrancing viewers as they have for the past two.
