The cast of Wellington Paranormal has for over four seasons been entertaining viewers in their native New Zealand. As of July 11, American audiences will have the opportunity to see what the buzz has been about down under, when The CW begins airing the first two seasons of this long-running hit back-to-back. From the creative team behind the What We Do In the Shadows franchise, Wellington Paranormal follows the adventures of police officers O'Leary (Karen O'Leary, pictured top right) and Minogue (Mike Minogue, top left) who, in the line of duty, seem to constantly find themselves facing all manner of ghouls and supernatural beings. Think The X-Files meets Cops with lots more of that underlying Scully and Mulder sexual tension. "There's a general vibe we give out, to be honest," joked Minogue during a Zoom call to promote the series. "I mean, I'm a lot like David Duchovny. I get a lot of leading men roles. And Karen gets a lot of Gillian Anderson stuff. Gillian Anderson recently played Margaret Thatcher in The Crown, so I think Karen's been lined up to play Jacinda Ardern in a movie that's coming up.”
