‘Anne Rice’s Interview With the Vampire’ Renewed for Season 3 at AMC

AMC Networks has renewed ‘Anne Rice’s Interview With the Vampire’ for a third season, just days before the Season 2 finale. The show, which is part of AMC’s expanding ‘Anne Rice Immortal Universe,’ has been praised for its faithful adaptation of the beloved novels.

Continued Success

The series, starring Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac and Sam Reid as Lestat, has maintained a 98% score on Rotten Tomatoes. The renewal reflects AMC’s confidence in the show’s ongoing appeal and the strong fanbase it has garnered.

Season 3 Details

The third season’s logline promises a dramatic new direction: “Resentful of the perfunctory portrayal in the trashy best-seller 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.” This new arc will introduce characters like Gabrielle, Nicholas, Magnus, and Marius, alongside familiar faces such as Louis, Armand, and Daniel Molloy.

Creative Team and Future Plans

Rolin Jones continues as the creator, writer, and showrunner, with executive producers including Mark Johnson, Mark Taylor, Christopher Rice, and the late Anne Rice. AMC President Dan McDermott praised the team for exceeding expectations with their adaptation of the novels.

Sam Reid, who plays Lestat, expressed excitement for the upcoming season, particularly the introduction of Lestat’s mother, Gabrielle, and the complex dynamics between her, Louis, and Lestat.

Fans can look forward to the Season 2 finale on June 30 and anticipate more thrilling developments in Season 3.
