It’s been revealed that Interview With The Vampire Season 2 has been renewed by AMC, and I cannot wait to watch the show’s first season when it’s released. This news was revealed by AMC (via ComicBook.com), and it’s really interesting to see that the network has opted to renew the show for another season before the first season has even aired. I’m really hoping that this show ends up being good because I really want to see another great show on AMC.
So, AMC has given Interview With the Vampire a Season 2 before the first season has even premiered. The show is going to be based on Anne Rice’s novel of the same name. The series is slated to debut on AMC on October 2nd. It was already revealed that the show’s second season is going to be set in Europe. Rolin Jones is the series’ showrunner and executive producer. Mark Johnson also executive produces and will be overseeing the larger Anne Rice television franchise at AMC. The series stars Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt, Bailey Bass as Claudia, and Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy.
Interview With The Vampire Season 2 has been renewed by AMC
Here’s what Dan McDermott, president of original programming for AMC Networks and AMC Studios, had to say about the upcoming series and why they’ve renewed it for a second season already:
The scope and breadth of this show, and what Mark and Rolin have delivered, is just stupendous. They have rendered the rich and vibrant world of Anne Rice’s Interview in a wonderful way, and we’re incredibly proud. From the set build, to production design, costumes and more — no detail was overlooked. This stellar cast deliver powerful performances that emotionally connect us to these characters and their humanity. We look forward to sharing the final product of this extraordinary effort with audiences in just a few short days and are thrilled that this story will continue. This is only the beginning of an entire Universe featuring enthralling stories and characters that capture the spirit of Anne Rice’s amazing work.
Will AMC make more shows like this one?
Rolin Jones, the series’ showrunner, then added the following:
Bulgaria. Romania. Paris. (Ah Paris!) San Francisco. New Orleans. Dubai. The writing staff of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire is honored, humbled, and hungry to add more stamps to our vamps’ passport books. All praises be to our fearless network, we shall endeavor not to screw it up.
AMC is taking a lot of inspiration from Anne Rice’s work. They are making this Interview With The Vampire series, and it’s also been revealed that they are making shows based on her other books, The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of Mayfair Witches. It seems as though AMC feels like they’ve hit a goldmine with Rice’s work, and I think they have. People still love vampires. They just never die!
