Everyone's favourite bloodsuckers (and Colin Robinson) are back! The trailer for season 5 of what is one of the funniest shows on TV has just landed and it's like Laszlo, Nadja and Nandor have never been away. 

Oh and let's not forgot Gizmo... sorry Guillermo, the familiar and aspiring vampire who just so happens to be related to Van Helsing. The trailer also reveals to us that Kirsten Schaal's Guide is back as well, so expect plenty of meddling with vampire society. 

If What We Do In The Shadows hasn't got its fangs into yet, then where have you been? Adapted from Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement's movie of the same name (and written by them again), this mockumentary series follows three vampires and one energy vampire who all live in one house in Staten Island. Expect cameos from some of the biggest names in Hollywood with the likes of Wesley Snipes and Tilda Swinton having featured before. Fans of recent British TV gems like Toast Of London and Stath Lets Flats will know just how great Matt Berry and Natasia Demetriou are but the rest of the regular cast are equally stellar. Harvey Guillén plays it so dry as Guillermo in particular.

Check out the trailer below, it's fangtastic.
