Interview with the Vampire is an upcoming gothic horror series on AMC created by Rolin Jones. It is based on the novel of the same name. Anne and Christopher Rice are attached as non-writing executive producers, and the series will premiere on October 2, 2022.
AMC is looking to turn Rice’s collection of novels, which includes the Vampire Chronicles and Mayfair Witches series, into a franchise with Mark Johnson overseeing the rollout. Johnson, who has an overall agreement with AMC Studios, will take the lead on the universe. This follows AMC acquiring the rights to 18 of Rice’s books in 2020.
Based on Anne Rice's revolutionary gothic novel, Interview with the Vampire follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Game of Thrones' Jacob Anderson), Lestat de Lioncourt (Belle's Sam Reid) and Claudia's (newcomer Bailey Bass) and their epic story of love, blood and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Chafing at the limitations of life as a Black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat's offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion. But Louis' intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat's newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, soon sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement.
