Are you curious to know about the fifth season of this American comedy-horror mockumentary fantasy drama? Here, we have all the details regarding What We Do in the Shadows Season 5.
What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Release Date
The series’ first season debuted on March 27, 2019, and ran for more than 3 Seasons till July 2022. Afterward, ahead of the fourth season premiere, the show’s makers renewed the series for two more seasons on June 6, 2022. Since the fourth season concluded recently, it is not possible for them to confirm a release date for season 5 of the show. However, the makers have taken a gap of more than a year for releasing a new season after the renewal, so, we can expect that the new season will be aired in 2023. The new season might also have the same number of episodes as the previous seasons.
What We Do in the Shadows Season 5 Plot
The main plot for the previous seasons has focused on three traditional vampires who interact with normal human beings in a new world along with supernatural creatures. Season 4 premiered back in July 2022, so we cannot predict anything for the next two seasons, which might be picked up by Season 4’s pilot episode, just as the previous seasons have done to link the storylines and restrict any gaps, and the plot continues to expand. The next two seasons would revolve around the plot and the characters would also be expanded along with the universe, along with a few changes to keep the audiences engaged.
