Vampire sitcom What We Do in the Shadows is returning to BBC2 for a second series, and we now know exactly when Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou and Matt Berrys bloodsuckers will be back on UK screens.
Created as a spin-off from the film of the same name, What We Do in the Shadows follows a nest of vampires living in Staten Island New York, whose spine-chilling reputations are somewhat undermined by their petty squabbles, pomposity and regular gaffes as depicted by a crew of documentary filmmakers.
Speaking about the second series, star Demetriou told RadioTimes.com, Its from the minds of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, and theres nothing they cant do.
In series two you just get to know more and more about this world that they live in, and their house and their relationships. Lots more sex, lots more blood. Whats not to like?
Check out everything you need to know about the UK airing of What We Do in the Shadows below.
After airing in America on FX a few weeks earlier, series creator Jemaine Clement has revealed that What We Do in the Shadows season 2 will come to BBC2 on Thursday 11th June at 10:00pm.
The series will open with a double bill of episodes featuring a necromancer and some mysterious ghosts

British actors Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak and Natasia Demetriou star in the comedy as vampires Laszlo, Nandor and Nadja, accompanied by boring energy vampire Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) and Nandors familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guilln).
Guest stars this series include The Offices Craig Robinson, The Sixth Senses Haley Joel Osment, Doctor Stranges Benedict Wong and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill among others.
Obviously getting to work with me is a huge pull, I know theres a lot of big A-listers out there desperate to get screentime with me, joked Demetriou.
I think its one of those shows where its like, who doesnt want to play a vampire? Who doesnt want to come and put fangs on, and a funny mad costume, and pretend to be a really over-the-top bloodsucking monster for a couple of days? Its like dress-up.
There is indeed check out what to expect from the hapless creatures of the night in the video above.
The new series reveals new details about the lead vampires past lives, new conflicts in the present day and a dark new path for loyal familiar Guillermo, who discovers he has a family heritage of vampire slaying.
You get to know each character more, and more about their backstory, series star Natasia Demetriou told RadioTimes.com.
You know theyre all about 600 years old so they have these mad backstories, and we get to know more about that.
Witches get involvedtheres a visitor from a galaxy far, far awayand Im sure everyone knows who that is.
The cast of the What We Do in the Shadows movie
While the TV version of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititis 2014 film (which followed vampires in New Zealand instead) has a different cast, it does actually exist in the same universe as the original, with Waititi and Clements characters making a cameo in season one.
Its unclear whether therell be more crossovers between the two vampire houseshares going forward, but it seems the door is always open.
It has been confirmed that more What We Do in the Shadows episodes are set to be made, with season 3 announced before season 2 even began airing in the UK.
Announcing the renewal, FXs original programming President Nick Grad, said, Were incredibly happy that critics and audiences are all in onShadows.
Week in and week out, the producers, writers and our amazing cast continue to make one of the funniest and best comedy series on TV.
Apparently, the series increased its US viewership by 25% while airing the second season in the US and the cast seem keen to keep on going for as long as theyre able.
Definitely it would be amazing to keep on going [for a while], Demetriou said.
I dont see why it couldnt but then the fact that there is a pandemic at the moment probably means it wont be imminently.
