FX has renewed the vampire comedy series “What We Do in the Shadows” for a second season, the network announced on Tuesday.

Currently midway through airing its first season, the renewal news for “What We Do in the Shadows” comes ahead of the show’s Wednesday, May 29 season finale. It is now slated to return in 2020.

“Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi and Paul Simms have more than delivered on the high expectations of Shadows fans by adapting the cult classic for television and building a passionate base of new and returning fans,” Nick Grad, co-president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, said. “We also want to thank the rest of the creative team, including Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush, and the incredible cast and crew for delivering such a fun and original series, and we look forward to working with them all on season two.”

Based on the 2014 movie of the same name from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, “What We Do in the Shadows” is described as “a documentary-style look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of four vampires who’ve ‘lived’ together for hundreds of years. In Staten Island.”

Clement is the creator of the series and executive produces the 10-episode first season of the series alongside Waititi, Paul Simms, Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch and Eli Bush.

Matt Berry, Kayvan Novak, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillén and Mark Proksch star.
