The actor, who portrays vampire Laszlo, previously included a nod to his show Toast of London in Season 3, and Berry spoke with Newsweek about what he hoped to include in What We Do in the Shadows‘ new episodes, which premiere on Tuesday, July 12.
Berry also spoke about Laszlo’s Colin Robinson problem, a storyline that was set up in Season 3 after the energy vampire died at the age of 100 only to be reborn, with Laszlo deciding to raise the child.
What We Do in the Shadows regularly makes reference to the vampire genre, for example, Wesley Snipes reprized his role as Blade and Tilda Swinton played her Only Lovers Left Alive character Eve in the show’s first season.
But Berry wanted to include a wholly different Easter Egg for fans in Season 4, a nod to Star Wars.
For fans who may not be aware of Berry’s involvement in the iconic sci-fi franchise, the actor appears in The Book of Boba Fett, the Disney+ series that came out in January, as a droid named 8D8.
