Staten Island’s favorite vampires are finally gracing our screens! What We Do in the Shadows officially returns for its fifth season starting Thursday (July 13) on FX and Hulu. This time around we can expect more mischief and tomfoolery as the gang navigates their first trip to the mall and more.

The mockumentary continues to follow the hilarious nightly lives of ancient vampires who have lived together as roommates for centuries. Together along with their loyal familiar Guillermo (Harvey Guillén), the group navigates the modern world and all the complications that come with it. What can we expect this season? Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch) running for office, Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) reconnecting with her roots and Lazlo (Matt Berry) and Guillermo spending more time together — which proves to create jealously from Nandor (Kayvan Novak).
