It follows the lives of four vampires who’ve “lived” together for hundreds of years in the New York borough of Staten Island.

Then there’s Guillermo (Guillén), Nandor’s familiar, who wants nothing more than to be made a real vampire just like his master, Colin Robinson (Proksch), an energy vampire and day-walker of sorts – he feasts on humans, but not on their blood.

The second season also featured a guest spot from Star Wars Mark Hamill as a vampire searching for Laszlo, who owed him money.
