AMC Networks Renews ‘Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire’ for a Third Season

Jacob Anderson as Louis De Point Du Lac

Ahead of the series’ second season finale, AMC Networks has announced that it has renewed the critically acclaimed series “Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire” for a third season.

The network describes the events of the third season as follows:

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 we 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 current second season of “Interview with the Vampire” stars Jacob Anderson, along with Sam Reid, Eric Bogosian, Assad Zaman, Delainey Hayles, and Ben Daniels. The series 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, along with Christopher Rice and the late Anne Rice. The highly anticipated 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.”

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.”
