Wellington Paranormal follows the adventures of two incurious police officers from the What We Do In The Shadows feature film, centering around Officers O'Leary (Karen O'Leary) and Minogue (Mike Minogue), who both starred in the film. They are hard-working members of the Wellington constabulary's paranormal unit who, under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka (Maaka Pohatu) investigate supernatural occurrences that arise in the capital of New Zealand on a surprisingly regular basis. The series is set to premiere on The CW first starting Sunday, July 11- with each episode available to stream via the network's digital platforms and on HBO Max the following day (after the episode's debut of The CW). Now here's a look at the extended trailer:
