During a presentation at San Diego Comic-Con 2022, new plot details are teased for upcoming episodes of What We Do in the Shadows season 4.
Details from upcoming episodes of What We Do in the Shadows season 4 have been teased during a presentation at Comic-Con. The series, which premiered on FX in early 2019, is a spin-off of the 2015 vampire mockumentary film of the same name, co-directed by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. The What We Do in the Shadows series, instead of staying in the original setting of New Zealand, follows four vampires – Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), Laszlo (Matt Berry), Nandor (Kayvan Novak), and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) – who live in a crumbling manor on Staten Island with Nandor’s human familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillén).
What We Do in the Shadows season 4 premiered on FX on July 12, and so far only three episodes of a planned ten have aired. The overarching plot lines of the season have seemed to focus on two major desires. The first is Nandor’s desire for a wife, which leads him to embark on an epic search both in the mundane realm of the Tri-state area and through the use of supernatural methods including a genie summoned from an ancient lamp. The other storyline results from Nadja’s desire to open a vampire nightclub inspired by the film Blade, much to the consternation of the Vampire Council’s caretaker, known as The Guide (Kristen Schaal).
Sunday is the closing day of San Diego Comic-Con 2022, and it has been dominated by panels hosted by FX. In addition to announcing the renewal of Mayans M.C. for season 5, there was a screening of the upcoming What We Do in the Shadows episode “The Night Market” that was followed by a Q&A. During the Q&A, several details for upcoming storylines were officially revealed, including the first appearance of Guillermo’s family, a romantic arc for the character, and a full vampire wedding. Check out the breakdown of what was teased below, via the official What We Do in the Shadows account:
breaking news from #FXSDCC:

4) don’t freak out

Guillermo’s romantic arc is one element that has already been teased for What We Do in the Shadows season 4. In episode 2, it was revealed that he has a mysterious, offscreen partner who hasn’t been discussed before. While the tease of a full vampire wedding would certainly seem to imply that Nandor indeed succeeds in finding a bride, it may very well prove to be Guillermo’s wedding, if that partner happens to be another member of the undead community.
It certainly wouldn’t be above the creators behind What We Do in the Shadows to pull a switcheroo like that. While Guillermo has nursed a longtime crush on Nandor, to the point that it has been speculated that the pair will end up together this season, it would certainly be freeing for him to find love outside of his small vampiric circle. However, given the fact that these characters have an inherent inability to change, his burgeoning love could inevitably be squashed at some point soon.
