Several new characters will be introduced in Interview With the Vampire Season 3, including Gabrielle, Magnus and Marius, as well as Those Who Must Be Kept (Akasha and Entil), whose castings haven't yet been announced. Here's who we're pretty sure will return for the third installment.

Sam Reid will reprise his role as the preternaturally beautiful, terrifyingly charismatic, addictive vampire Lestat de Lioncourt. Season 3 will focus heavily on his character and his character's story from his own point of view, as opposed to his story being told by and through Louis, Armand and Claudia.

Game of Thrones alum Jacob Anderson will return as Louis de Pointe du Lac following the explosive Season 2, which saw him question his memory after being manipulated and gaslit by Armand.

Assad Zaman will be back as Armand, the calculated, cruel, conniving but still somehow cute vampire who corrupted Louis and Daniel's memories for the sake of controlling their narratives.

"And then what happened?" Eric Bogosian is back as the quasi-Anthony Bourdain-coded interviewer extraordinaire Daniel Molloy. We're looking forward to hearing more of his story, as well as his experiences with the Talamasca (and his impatience and shady remarks to and about Armand).

Nicolas de Lenfent was a huge part of Lestat's life. Joseph Potter appeared as the character, generally regarded as Lestat's first love, in Season 2, and their relationship will likely be explored further in Season 3.

Gopal Divan as Dr. Fareed Bhansali

Or, should we say, "real Rashid."

It's also possible that some vampires and mortals who didn't survive Seasons 1 and 2 may reappear in Season 3 flashback scenes, especially as the story gets told increasingly through Lestat's lens.
