Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, WELLINGTON PARANORMAL follows the adventures of Officers O'Leary and Minogue, hard-working members of the Wellington constabulary's paranormal unit who, under the supervision of Sergeant Maaka, investigate supernatural occurrences that arise in the capital of New Zealand on a surprisingly regular basis. This spinoff of the original mockumentary film WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS had its U.S. premiere on Sunday, July 11, 2021 from 9-10pm ET/PT, as The CW presented two episodes.

The sophomore season of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL made its U.S. debut on Sunday, August 15, 2021 at 9pm ET/PT on The CW. In the season opener, "The Not Ness Monster," Officers Minogue and O'Leary head for the ocean, joined by Sergeant Maaka, when 10 anglers disappear from around Wellington Harbour in mysterious circumstances.

The CW aired the U.S. debut of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL's third season on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 from 9-10pm ET/PT, with back-to-back episodes. Officers Minogue and O'Leary are back on the case...this time hunting down a monstrous invisible force. Minogue and O'Leary find footage of a camper being abducted by a large hairy creature and decide to head for the bush. Sargeant Maaka believes it to be a Sasquatch-type creature from Maori mythology, but the Officers must find out for themselves.

The fourth and final season of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL made its U.S. debut on Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on The CW. When shiny objects begin disappearing all over town, including the "W" from the city's iconic WELLINGTON sign, Officers Minogue and O'Leary go looking for the culprit and happen upon a half-bird, half-human suspect.
The CW aired the series finale of WELLINGTON PARANORMAL on Wednesday, August 31, 2022 from 9-10pm ET/PT, debuting back-to-back episodes:

"Who the Hell?" (9pm): Minogue and O'Leary get to the bottom of a series of mysterious curses; Officer Parker gets a new partner.

"Time Cop: Not The Jean-Claude Van Damme One" (9:30pm): Minogue and O'Leary go back in time to the 1990s, but upon their return discover they have created an apocalyptic new timeline where Sarge never became a cop.
