Following the show’s first season, which aired from September to November 2022, Interview With the Vampire rolled right into production on its eight-episode second season. Production wrapped last year in Prague, Paris and New Orleans.
Interview With the Vampire, along with Mayfair Witches, is part of Rice’s Immortal Universe. AMC Networks is “actively developing” a possible third series, written and executive-produced by Oscar nominee John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side). The series would follow the secret Talamasca society, which is featured in several of Rice’s books.
