Interview with the Vampire Renewed for a Third Season

Today, AMC Networks announced it has renewed the critically acclaimed series Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire for a third season, days before the finale of its second season on AMC and AMC+.

The first series in its Anne Rice Immortal Universe, Interview with the Vampire has attracted a loyal base of passionate fans, has excellent reviews, and has the rare distinction of receiving 98-point scores for its first and second seasons on Rotten Tomatoes.

AMC’s Anne Rice Immortal Universe now includes three series: Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, which is currently in production on its second season, and the recently greenlit Anne Rice’s The Talamasca (working title).

In season three, resentful of the perfunctory portrayal in the trashy bestseller Interview with the Vampire, the Vampire Lestat sets his story straight in a way only the Vampire Lestat can—by starting a band and going on tour. Gabrielle. Nicholas. Magnus. Marius. Those Who Must Be Kept.

They join Louis, Armand, Molloy, Sam, Raglan, Fareed, and others AMC can’t tell you about yet on a sexy pilgrimage across space, time, and trauma. No Auto-Tuning. No Trigger Warnings. All Feels Amplified.

The second season stars Jacob Anderson, Sam Reid, Eric Bogosian, Assad Zaman, Delainey Hayles, and Ben Daniels. It is executive produced by award-winning producer Mark Johnson (who oversees AMC’s Anne Rice Immortal Universe), creator, writer, and showrunner Rolin Jones, Mark Taylor, Christopher Rice, and the late Anne Rice. The season two finale is this Sunday, June 30, on AMC+ and at 9 p.m. on AMC.

“When you buy the rights to 18 Anne Rice novels that have sold more than 150 million copies, in your wildest dreams, you hope there’s a show as good as Interview on the other end,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks.

“What Rolin has done with these stories and characters, working so closely with Mark as the steward of this universe has exceeded the loftiest version of our expectations. We can’t wait to see where this creative team takes the series from here and know we are walking alongside an incredibly loyal and passionate base of fans who feel as strongly about this material as we do.”

Jones said: “Thank you to the brilliant casts and crews of the first two seasons that got us to this day. Thank you to the rabid, beautifully unwell fandom that scaled the castle walls to get us to this day. Thank you to Dan McDermott, Ben Davis for the funds and tools to continue the great work of dramatizing Anne Rice’s extraordinary novels.

“And sincere apologies to the family and friends of actor Sam Reid for the possession that continues to this day. Monsieur L extends his promise to return his body upon cancellation (may that evening never come.)”
