Only a day after Kayvan Novak (via video), Natasia Demetriou, Matt Berry, and Harvey Guillén (Mark Proksch wasn't able to attend) took over New York Comic Con (NYCC) to talk about all things What We Do in the Shadows, FX has released a promo for this week's episode that finds Nandor (Kayvan Novak) facing a crisis of the midlife variety. Granted, we're not exactly sure what "midlife" is for an immortal vampire but we'll work with what we've got. So for Nandor, it's a goodbye to his vampire lifestyle and hello to healthy, active living! So now we have a few days to count up all the wonderful ways this will go oh, so wrong.
Here's a look at the promo for this week's episode, "The Wellness Center";
And in case you haven't heard, Guillen also hosts the After The Shadows after-show, which now has five episodes online. In the first, Guillen welcomes Kristen Schaal (The Guide) to discuss the season-opener. Following that, Novak and Aida Turturro checked in to discuss their episode & more. From there, production designer Shayne Fox takes viewers behind the scenes of the series. Then, the fivesome's favorite neighbors Anthony Antranik & Marissa Jaret Winokur stopped by. Last week, Doug Jones checked in to discuss The Baron's return- and this week? A look behind the make-up and into the talented mind of Paul Jones, the show's Prosthetic Makeup Designer:
From Guillermo (Guillén)outing himself as a kickass vampire slayer and our vamps' new status as bigwigs within the vampire community to Colin's (Proksch) 100th birthday, wellness cults, Nandor's "eternal life crisis", and a whole ton more, here's a look at the third season's official trailer:
What We Do in the Shadows, based on the feature film by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, documents the nightly exploits of vampire roommates Nandor (Kayvan Novak), Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry) and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) as they navigate the modern world of Staten Island with the help of their human familiar, Guillermo (Harvey Guillén).
After the shocking season two finale, we find the housemates in a panic about what to do with Guillermo after discovering that he is a vampire killer. This season, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms and supernatural curiosities galore. Plus, Colin Robinson is turning 100. And Nandor, faced with his own eternal-life crisis, tries to inject his life with more meaning. Will he find love or is he destined to be an immortal bachelor with 37 ex-wives?
Created by Clement and produced by FX Productions, What We Do in the Shadows stars Kayvan Novak as Nandor, Natasia Demetriou as Nadja, Matt Berry as Laszlo, Mark Proksch as Colin Robinson, and Harvey Guillén as Guillermo. Clement, Waititi, and Paul Simms serve as executive producers, alongside Scott Rudin, Garrett Basch, Eli Bush, and Stefani Robinson.
