Some exciting things from the world of the Undead (in entertainment, that is) to report this week. First up, and the most exciting to me, is that WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is getting a spinoff! Technically WELLINGTON PARANORMAL already exists, and has since 2018, but it’s never aired outside New Zealand before. But the series will start airing on the CW later this coming summer and will then be available on HBOMax afterwards. WELLINGTON PARANORMAL is a spinoff of the WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS movie, it bears mentioning, and not the hit television series we’ve so grown to love airing on FX. Might we get a spinoff series to *that* series at some point in the future? An American version of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL? Sure could be fun!
In other international vampire news, the Irish Horror-Comedy BOYS FROM COUNTY HELL will be available on Shudder starting April 22nd. “Strange events unfold in Six Mile Hill—a sleepy Irish town that claims to have been traveled by the famed author Bram Stoker—when construction on a new road disrupts the alleged grave of Abhartach, a legendary Irish vampire said to have inspired Dracula. Deadly and sinister forces terrorize the work crew led by Francie Moffat and his son Eugene, a free-spirited young man who prefers pints to pickaxes, and they’re forced to fight to survive the night while exposing the true horror that resides in the town’s local myth.”
