Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire Renewed


AMC Networks has renewed Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire for a third season.

The first series in its Anne Rice Immortal Universe, Interview has received 98-point scores for both its first and second seasons on Rotten Tomatoes. The season two finale is this Sunday, June 30, on AMC+ and at 9 p.m. on AMC.

AMC’s Anne Rice Immortal Universe now includes three series: Anne Rice’s Interview with the VampireAnne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, which is currently in production on its second season; and the recently greenlit Anne Rice’s The Talamasca (w.t.).

“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.”

Creator, writer and showrunner Rolin 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.)”
