Stick A Stake In It
When "What We Do In The Shadows: The Series" begins production on its sixth season this week, it’s with the full knowledge of the cast and crew that this will be the much-loved series’ last season.
Based on the 2014 feature film of the same name, by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, the series documents the nightly adventures of vampire roommates Nandor, Nadja, Colin and Laszlo as they make their way through modern-day Staten Island with a little help from their human friend, Guillermo.
Joining Clement and Waititi as Executive Producers are Eli Bush, Paul Simms, Garrett Basch and Sam Johnson. If nothing else, the fact that the show is staying with FX Productions and the same talented people in control, means the series will receive a proper conclusion. It most definitely deserves as much.
No Cracks In The Black Mirror
Charlie Brooker, the creator of Black Mirror, has returned to the airwaves to chill us again, in this return to the show’s anthology format.
In a recent interview, he mentioned that this season is going to stand out from the past seasons. “I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another, and keep surprising people — and myself — or else what’s the point? It should be a series that keeps reinventing itself."
Booker is holding specifics close to the vest, but it’s good that he is changing things up enough to keep Black Mirror reflecting positively.
Bruce Campbell has been tapped to play small-town Police Chief Dandridge, a recurring role in the upcoming Peacock series, Hysteria! The actor, known to fans as The Chin, joins Emmy Award winner Julie Bowen in the horror series, penned by showrunner David A. Goodman.
The series deals with the disappearance of a college quarterback during the Satanic Panic of the late 1980s, while a heavy metal group figures out that it can capitalize on the sudden interest in the occult by billing themselves as a satanic metal band. Until, that is, a bizarre series of events, appearing to be supernatural activity, trigger an “investigation” that leads law enforcement (i.e., Sheriff Dandridge) back to the band.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the first episode. John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein and Matthew Scott Kane will Executive Produce.

Feast your eyes!
Why are we covering Season 4 of True Detective? It's not horror you say? I beg to differ. If you take the first season into consideration, this series can get really dark. And as far as I'm concerned, that's good enough.
Jodie Foster, Kali Reis, Christopher Eccleston, John Hawkes, Finn Bennett and Fiona Shaw all bring their acting chops to the table. This will be the first season without creator Nic Pizzolatto. But seeing as the style he brought to Seasons 1 and 3, was MIA in Season 2, maybe this is a blessing.
Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey return as Executive Producers and are joined by Jodie Foster. Time will tell on this one, folks. Stay tuned.
True Detective Season Four Will Be Sans Nic Pizzolatto. Worried? Not Overly.
