Sometimes what Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement do in the shadows is a vampire-based comedy series and other times, it is an “action-adventure comedy” series.
Clement told EW of this upcoming television show, but didn’t give too many details so don’t expect a premise or a release date as they “just started writing” it. However, he did state that he wants it to be different from his other work.
“Taika and I are working on a new series right now which we just started writing,” said Clements. “I can’t tell you much about it yet, but what’s fun about it and what makes it exciting for me is it’s something I always wanted to do which is long-form episodes in a sitcom. It’s an action-adventure comedy. It’ll be different from what I’ve usually done. I’ve made three sitcoms now, and I hope this one is still funny but more of an adventure series.”
He did say that he missed working with Waititi on What We Do In the Shadows Season 2 and that it would be nice for the two to collaborate once again. The two have worked together in some capacity on multiple projects including the film and TV versions of What We Do In the Shadows, its spin-off Wellington Paranormal, Eagle vs. Shark, The Breaker Upperers, Flight of the Conchords, and more.
