What We Do In The Shadows Season 2 Cast, Release Date, And Plot
Last week, Hulu confirmed the release date for What We Do In The Shadows season 2, putting an end to fan’s year-long anticipation. Shortly afterward, it also confirmed the guest appearance of Star Wars actor Mark Hamill on the show’s upcoming season. The network is yet to confirm if recurring cast members from the show’s first season will return for its second innings. But it has, nevertheless, given an ample insight into the new season’s plot.
Shadows closed its season 1 on a cliffhanger when it revealed via a DNA test that Guillermo was a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, a prolific Vampire hunter. Now, sources suggest that the equation between the ever-loyal familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillen) and his Vampire master Nandor (Kavyan Novak) will change for the worse. Guillen has revealed that in What We Do In The Shadows Season 2 Guillermo will have a more action-packed role. This suggests the humble servant will turn against the master he had sworn to obey.
"This season, Guillermo gets to do a lot of action stuff, and I'm very excited about that." – Harvey Guillen

Flipping the spectrum to its infamous side, Mark Proksch’s Colin Robinson will break the headlines with his sexual escapade. Then notorious energy vampire, with scandals of his own, will torment America in the most horrifying way.
For now, we don’t know much about what Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) and Laszlo (Matt Berry) will be doing on the show. But we can expect, for them, a direct conflict with Mark Hamill’s character.
