Mark Hamill shows his dark side in What We Do in the Shadows episode 2.06 promo
Star Wars alum Mark Hamill took to Twitter to reveal the first promo for What We Do in the Shadows‘ upcoming episode 2.06 titled “On the Run,” featuring the first footage of Hamill’s guest-starring role as Laszlo’s vengeful enemy. The new episode is scheduled to air on Wednesday, May 13 on FX. Check out the video below!
Directed by Yana Gorskaya from a script by Stefani Robinson, the new episode’s official synopsis reads: “After a vengeful enemy from the past appears without warning, Laszlo flees his home and goes into hiding to avoid certain death.”
What We Do in the Shadows is based on the 2014 vampire mockumentary film of the same name which follows a group of vampires (Taika Waititi, Clement, Jonathan Brugh, Ben Fransham) who live together in modern-day Wellington, New Zealand as they go through the mundane tasks of everyday life and of rooming with other people, as well as bringing in a vampire (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer) just turned by the group.
Over the course of the second season, the vampires will try to find their way in a world of human Super Bowl parties, internet trolls, an energy vampire who gets a promotion and becomes drunk on power and of course, all the ghosts, witches, necromancers, zombies and shadowy cloaked assassins who roam freely in the Tri-State area. Is Guillermo destined to be a vampire or a vampire hunter? Or maybe just a familiar for the rest of his life?
Season 2 will also be featuring Star Wars alum Mark Hamill and MCU alum Benedict Wong, who are the latest big names that is set to make an appearance in the series with the first season featuring guest-stars that included Dave Bautista, Evan Rachel Wood, Danny Trejo, Wesley Snipes, Paul Rubens, and Tilda Swinton, who all played vampire roles.
The series is written and executive-produced by Waititi and Clement. It stars Matt Berry (The IT Crowd), Kayvan Novak (Early Man), Natasia Demetriou (Year Friends) and Harvey Guillen (The Magicians).
The film earned rave reviews from critics upon release and quickly became an international cult classic, propelling Waititi and Clement even further into the spotlight as actors, writers, and directors. Since its release, the film has had multiple continuations in development, with a sequel set on the group of werewolves seen in the film led by Anton (Rhys Darby, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) still in active development, as well as a procedural comedy series based on the cops seen in the film as they encounter paranormal events around Wellington.
