The first spin-off of the 2014 film What We Do in the Shadows before it became a popular TV series, Wellington Paranormal is a horror-comedy mockumentary that follows dim-witted officers Minogue and O’Leary as they investigate supernatural activity in and around New Zealand’s capital.

Created by Paul Yates and Flight of the Conchords star Jermaine Clement, the deadpan police duo have found themselves responding to complaints about pet-gobbling werewolves, sewer-swelling fatbergs, and Māori sea monsters, while also confronting alien clones and their own general incompetence.

Season 4 sees the welcome return of their long-suffering sergeant (played by Maaka Pohatu) and the promotion of Thomas Sainsbury to the main cast as Constable Parker, when they'll all become embroiled in a hilarious new batch of paranormal problems.

Expect a poltergeist that messes with police maps, a leather jacket that renders its wearer ineffably cool, and some 1990s time travel for good measure. Read on and we’ll explain how to watch Wellington Paranormal online from anywhere.
