Co-writer/co-director/costar Jemaine Clement has confirmed that a sequel to the vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows is in the planning stages. The first movie, a New Zealand indie which follows a group of vampire roommates as they bicker over chore wheels and feeding off the blood of virgins, amassed a much-deserved cult following in the U.S. after a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring it across the pond.

The sequel would focus on the polite werewolf (not swearwolf) Anton, played by Rhys Darby. In a separate interview with the AV Club, Clement mentioned also pitching a TV series in which the movie’s easily-distracted cops work for an X-Files-like organization. But New Zealand television producers, unlike vampires, have been slow to bite.
