What We Do In the Shadows Spin-Off Wellington Paranormal Gets July 11 Premiere Date

The series is produced by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi and makes its US debut next month.


The What We Do In the Shadows spin-off show Wellington Paranormal has a confirmed US premiere date. The series will premiere on The CW on July 11 and hit HBO Max the following day.

There have been three seasons of Wellington Paranormal to date, but it had not previously aired in the US. Season 1 premiered in New Zealand in 2018, while Season 3 arrived earlier this year.

Wellington Paranormal is produced by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. Like the What We Do In the Shadows movie and subsequent show, it's a mockumentary, and it focuses on officers Minogue (Mike Minogue) and Leary (Karen O’Leary), members of Wellington's paranormal unit who investigate supernatural occurrences in the town under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka (Maaka Pohatu). Minogue and O’Leary previously played the characters in the Shadows movie.

What We Do In the Shadows Season 2 was released last year, and the show has been greenlit for a third season. It was GameSpot's favorite series of 2020--check out why we rated the show so highly.
