The police from What We Do In The Shadows are getting their own Paranormal TV show

Wellington Paranormal is a new television show created by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement

It is a spin-off from the excellent 2014 horror comedy film What We Do In The Shadows that followed vampire housemates (Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh) as they try to cope with the complexities of modern life in Wellington.

The new show will follow police unit members Mike Minogue and Karen O’Leary as they hunt out ghosts, werewolves and demonic possessions. The pair are under the watchful eye of Sergeant Maaka Pohatu, who performs in Modern Māori Quartet during the day. Cori Gonzalez-Macuer’s Nick from the original film is also set to feature in the TV show.

It was such a good film and if you remember, the police called into the Vampire house a few times throughout the film and were hypnotized so they wouldn’t see any blood or dead bodies.

The new series will consist of six 30-minute episodes. They will air on TVNZ 2 in in New Zealand in mid-2018. Hopefully it will make its way to the UK shortly after.

Jemaine Clement explained how Wellington is plagued with paranormal activity.

It’s surprising how many demonic possessions there are. There was a very tense situation at the Bucket Fountain – I can tell you it involved a possible Gateway from Hell. We’re very concerned about this kind of stuff.

We had an incident with some zombies which got pretty tense there. So luckily they’re taken care of. A couple of crew members were turned into zombies – I think. It’s hard to tell sometimes.

Also, some very worrying things have happened in Lower Hutt as well. There was a party in Khandallah that got a bit out of hand, too, with some undead member of the Wellington public.

It all sounds splendid.
