Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire Season 1 hasn’t even debuted yet, and we already have good news about the future.

We’re patiently waiting for the AMC+ series Interview with the Vampire. Based on the book we already know and love by Anne Rice, it’s time to see the story of Lestat and Louis again. There are some changes to come, though, and we’re all for them.

The new series sees Game of Thrones‘ Jacob Anderson take on the role of Louis, the vampire eager to tell his story to journalist Daniel Molloy. It’s one of love and loss, of blood and vengeance, of life and death. Still initially set in 18th century America, the decision to have a Black actor take on the role of Louis is going to be an interesting one.

Interview with the Vampire is renewed for Season 2

It looks like AMC+ isn’t too worried about the reception when it comes to the changes. It’s already renewed the series for a second season, according to Variety.

This is days ahead of the premiere, which happens on Sunday, Oct. 2. There will be two episodes on AMC+ although only one will air on the AMC channel. The streamer will be a week ahead each week, so it will be worth getting the streaming platform. The good news is that it’s available via Amazon Channels*.

No details have been shared about the second season yet. That’s not surprising since we are still to watch even the premiere of the new series. Season 1 will have eight episodes.
